Dick and Needra SheetsJohn & Darlene Lockard

Married in Bascom, Ohio in 1974, John and Darlene with their two children made Pemberville their home in 1988. John became the Electric Superintendent for Pemberville and Darlene utilized her Dental Assisting skills with Drs. Gary & Cheryl DeWood. She continues to work part time for Dr. Glen Davis in Woodville, Ohio. Together they have spent countless hours benefiting the village. Although he is retired, John continues to be one of the men behind the electricity for The Pemberville Free Fair. 2021 marks twenty years that John has held the office of President for the Tree Commission. In 1990 John became the president of the Pemberville little League and held the office until 1994. He supported and assisted with the league for many years after. In 1997, in recognition of his contributions to the village, he was chosen as the Outstanding Citizen. In addition to supporting and helping John, Darlene found herself managing the Bingo tent at the fair for more than ten years! While they can take pride in their contributions to the village they are most proud of their family. Their son Chad has been with the Accenture Company as a Civil Engineer Consultant for 18 years and he resides in Cincinnati, Ohio. Daughter, Allison with her husband Joe and their three children, Lucia, 8 yrs, Lucca, 6 yrs, and Luna, 3 yrs, resides in State College, Pennsylvania. Allison is a Professor at the University of Bucknell. John and Darlene hold an active membership at St. Aloysius church in Bowling Green. They both enjoy walking and often help their neighbors while out and about. Newspapers mysteriously make the way from the paper box to ones doorstep, meals are delivered and transportation is provided to those that may need it. Together they are the ultimate example of the goodwill that makes Pemberville. Congratulations John and Darlene on this well deserved recognition!
