Knox Hunter Sherer, Moderator of the 22nd General Assembly, died on April 13, 2017, after a brief illness. He was 84. Sherer was a founder and Ruling Elder of The Village Church in Matthews, N.C., and previously served as a Ruling Elder for Forest Hill Church in Charlotte, N.C., when that congregation was a member of the EPC.
Sherer was a member of EPC Committee on Administration (now National Leadership Team), and was active in the Presbytery of the Mid-Atlantic for many years—including serving as Treasurer. In his years on the COA, he was a member of the National Outreach Director Search Committee and the Stated Clerk Search Committee that brought Mike Glodo to office following the retirement of Ed Davis, who served 20 years as the EPC’s first Stated Clerk.
Sherer graduated from the University of South Carolina and the USC School of Law. He enjoyed a lengthy career in business and community service, and also served as a Captain in the Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps of the United States Air Force.
He is survived by his wife, Betty Clark Sherer; a daughter, Betsey (Dr. Robert) Moore of Florence, S.C.; a son, Knox Hunter Sherer Jr. of Matthews, N.C.; two grandchildren; and one great-granddaughter.
A memorial service will be held on April 18, 2017, at Back Creek Presbyterian Church in Charlotte, N.C.
