Son of Francis and Bridget (née: Gaffney) Sheridan, he was born June 25, 1940, in Upper Finea, Moynagh, County Cavan, Ireland.

He left his beloved Ireland in 1959 and emigrated to New York City. It was here that he met his beloved wife of 45 years, Brigid “Bridie”McKeown, with whom he is now reunited with in Heaven.

He retired from Consolidated Edison of New York, N.Y., as an electrician, with more than 30 years of dedicated service.

Survivors include his children, Anne Marie Sheridan of Norwalk, Conn.; Frank and his wife, Ann Marie Sheridan, of Middletown; Bernadette and her husband, Hugh Maxwell, of Goshen, N.Y.; John Sheridan of Middletown; and granddaughter, Gemma Maire Maxwell of Goshen; brother, John Sheridan and his wife, Agnes Sheridan of Thurles, County Tipperary, Ireland; and brother-in-law, Mike Gleeson of Pearl River, N.Y.; sister, Bridie Murray and her husband, John Murray, of Carrickboy, County Longford, Ireland; sister-law, Deidre Sheridan of Virginia, County Cavan, Ireland; brother-in-law, Brian Maguire of Stradone, County Cavan, Ireland; and several nieces and nephews.

He was pre-deceased by his sisters, Eileen (Sheridan) Gleeson, Rita (Sheridan) Sinheart, and Maureen (Sheridan) Maguire; and his brother, Frank Sheridan.

He was a lover of the “craic” and an avid sports fan. He will be missed by all who knew him, and welcomed home by all who went before him.

A Burial Mass will be held with the family in St. Mochua’s Church, Derrynoose, Keady, County Armagh, Ireland.

Arrangements are under the care of the Donovan Funeral Home, Goshen.
