Sheridan married his wife Shelagh on December 29th 1973, and they were sealed in the London Temple on May 28th 1975. 
Sheridan had a huge personality as anyone who met him would agree. He loved life and enjoyed his time by camping with his family, playing basketball, and playing computer games. 
He loved his sweets including any kind of ice cream. His favorite soda was his homemade root beer. He had a strong testimony in the church and he was passionate about missionary work.
Sheridan worked tirelessly to help anyone that needed it. His loss will be felt by many people.
