“We’re just all still in disbelief. I mean we really are. I think it hasn’t quite sunk in for a lot of us yet,” said Angela Casavant, who is a family friend.

Casavant’s husband Phil Casavant is an officer with Richardson Police.

“It hits home, it hits real close to home,” said Casavant.

Their family is not only friends with the Sherrard family, but they live down the street from one another.

“I mean just a beloved guy by everyone. Everybody just loved him. Always a smile on his face, always,” said Casavant. “Just a great family guy. His wife and children adored him and that was very obvious.”

Richardson Police shared details of a memorial fund along with a photograph of Officer Sherrard with his two daughters and wife.
