“Bobby Sherman – From Teen Idol to Field Deliveries”: Hollywood Exit for Parenthood and Heroism

Bobby Sherman, a big music and TV star from the 1960s and 1970s, was born on July 22, 1943, in Santa Monica, California. He grew up in Van Nuys, where he learned to play multiple instruments like the trumpet, piano, and guitar. After high school, he attended Pierce College in Woodland Hills.

At a Hollywood party, Sherman caught the attention of celebrities like Sal Mineo, Natalie Wood, and Jane Fonda with his singing. Sal Mineo mentored him and helped him get into the entertainment industry. Sherman’s big break came in 1968 with the TV show “Here Come The Brides,” where he played Jason Bolt.

He became a teenage heartthrob and enjoyed success with hit songs like “Julie, Do Ya Love Me” and “Little Woman.” Despite his fame, Sherman felt overwhelmed by his busy schedule and decided to leave the entertainment world.

Bobby Sherman chose a completely different path—saving lives. Concerned about his children’s safety, he took first aid and CPR courses, eventually becoming a volunteer EMT. In 1992, he joined the Los Angeles Police Department as a sworn officer and chief medical training officer.

Even during emergencies, Sherman maintained his entertaining spirit. He encountered fans while on rescue calls and shared stories from his time in the limelight. Despite the challenges, he found fulfillment in saving lives.

In 1997, Bobby Sherman made his last TV appearance on “Frasier.” 

He briefly returned to entertainment in the late ’90s for the “Teen Idol Tour” but officially left the industry afterward. He thanked his fans for their support and acknowledged the hard work behind his success.

Bobby Sherman married his second wife, Brigette, in 2011. They founded The Brigitte and Bobby Sherman Children’s Foundation in Ghana, focusing on music and education for youth. Today, at 79, Bobby Sherman continues to enjoy life while making a positive impact.
