Sherrel was born in Ogden, Utah on August 31st, 1956 to Halvor Waddoups Hinton and Audrey Joan Averett. Sherrel’s childhood took place in Cody, Wyoming and Fillmore, Utah. He was close to his Grandma and Grandpa Moyes who had a powerful impact on him when he went to live with them. He attended Millard High School and worked for the McBride Lumber Company in Fillmore. In 1977 he made his home in Washington State. He worked as a carpenter, janitor, and business owner, before eventually finding his passion in the culinary arts.

He especially enjoyed his time cooking and fostering close relationships with the residents that were special to him at Hawthorn Court in Kennewick, Washington. He was known for his sense of humor and strong work ethic. Sherrel loved his family, pets, plants, and working on “Betsy,” his ‘55 Chevy. He had a passion for restoring antiques.
