Robert “Bullet” Sherwood, a Salisbury icon beloved by many in the Tri-state area, was laid to rest on Saturday, June 8, at the cemetery in Salisbury, following a Mass at St. Mary Church in Lakeville and calling hours at the Lakeville Hose Company on Friday, June 7, during which a massive American flag was floated above the firehouse, below. The ceremonies were well-attended by friends, family, coworkers and the many emergency services volunteers who had worked with and relied on Bullet in his many capacities over the years. Also attending the burial, according to some of the attendees, was a large black bear.
