Obituary

Bernard “Ben” Sheridan, 95, of Bronx, NY, entered into eternal rest on Saturday, July 27, 2019.

Relatives and friends are kindly invited to the Funeral from the Walter Johnson Funeral Home on Wednesday, July 31 beginning with Visiting from 9:00 to 10:30 am, thence to St. Helen’s Church, Westfield, where a Funeral Mass will be offered at 11:00 am. Interment will follow at 2:00 pm in Gate of Heaven Cemetery, Hawthorne, NY.

Ben was one of 10 children born in County Longford, Ireland to Thomas and Anne (Higgins) Sheridan. He lived in the Bronx for many years, where he was a member of the Senior Citizens at St. Benedict’s Church.

Ben was the Owner of S&W Supermarket in Throgs Neck for 40 years, retiring in 1993.

Ben was a proud Irishman who especially loved Irish music and dancing. He will be remembered most fondly for his stories about the farm in Ireland, his dry humor and his love of a “delicious” meal shared with family and friends.

Ben was the beloved husband of the late Mary (Nee) Sheridan; the devoted father of the late Thomas Sheridan and his wife Nancy and Maureen Gallagher and her husband John; the cherished grandfather of Ryan, Sean and Meaghan Gallagher and Brian and Kevin Sheridan; the dear brother of Thomas Sheridan and loving uncle of many nieces and nephews.
