Obituary of John Sheriff

Mr. John C. Sheriff of Byron, Georgia passed away, Tuesday December 20, 2022 at Atrium Navicent Health in Macon, Georgia; he was 61 years old.  John was born March 4, 1961 in Atlanta, Georgia to Mrs. Dorothy Moore Sheriff and the late Ernest Sheriff, Sr. Along with his father, John is preceded in death by his siblings Audrey Sutherland and Ernest (Ernie) Sheriff, Jr. A memorial service celebrating John Sheriff's life will be held Wednesday, December 28, 2022 at 1 PM in the Chapel at Heritage Memorial Funeral Home and Crematory. 

John was passionate about the outdoors, especially wetting a hook in the pond to catch a few fish.  When it came to cars, he was the man to ask.  His knowledge to repair and maintenance was incredibly unreal.  John's love for conversation steered him to Amateur Radio (ham radio) and Citizens band radio (also known as CB radio), a popular hobby and service that brings people, electronics and communication together. His social personality was effectively displayed with his love to grill and cookout for others.  Although, he had a great liking  for conversation he also appreciated nature and the peace is brought him. 

John is survived by his wife, Lucille Sheriff, children: Ann and Joe and a host of extended family and friends.  He will be truly missed by all that loved him. 

Please sign the online guest registry at and leave a personal condolence for the family.

Heritage Memorial Funeral Home & Crematory has the honor of being entrusted with the arrangements for Mr. John C. Sheriff.
