Pete Sherry grew up in rural Kentucky, but moved to the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area during college. Following decades of formal education that he firmly believes should have been wasted on someone else, he served as a pastor, and later as a therapist. After many years spent in riotous living, he is profoundly grateful for the opportunity to have a quiet life spent in recovery and repentance, building guitars, loving his family, and living every moment fully aware and awake.
In June 2019, at the age of 43, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer. I underwent colon resection surgery and eight months of chemotherapy, and was then declared “cancer free” in the early spring of 2020.
