Sherm also earned an MBA degree from Old Dominion University (Norfolk, VA) and a Ph.D. in Business Administration from the University of Nebraska (Lincoln, NE).

In his later years, Sherm focused on deepening his personal walk with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. For many years, Sherm and Vicky also enjoyed nature in the great outdoors when hiking and canoeing especially around Ely, Minnesota.
