Jim Cherry (Project Engineer)

James Robert Cherry

James "Jim" Cherry, 83, passed quietly in his sleep March 15, 2014 after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease.  He kept his wonderful sense of humor to the end.

James is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Adelia “Dee” Cherry; son Randy (Deanna) Wellman; daughter Ann Cherry and her companion Gary; grandchildren Matthew and Andrea Wellman; and sister Evelyn Bencke.  He is also survived by this beloved dog, Lilly.

Jim’s indomitable spirit, integrity and kindness will always be remembered by his family and friends.  In November 1978, Jim hired on at the Frenchtown Mill as a mechanical engineer.  He left the mill in approximately 1990.

Jim requested that no services be held.

A celebration of his life is planned for a later time.

Rest in Peace dear Friend.
