Obituary for Michael S. Cherry

GRAFTON: Michael Stephen Cherry, 27, passed away on October 5, 2017 with his mother by his side. He was the son of Andrea Cherry and the late James Cherry. He was his mother’s best Christmas present ever, born on December 25, 1989 in Worcester, Ma.

Michael graduated from Grafton Memorial High School in 2007. While in High School he graduated from the Student Trooper Program. He attended Assabet Valley Technical School, eventually apprenticing with the local electricians. He used those skills by giving aid to Haiti in 2011 and also participated in humanitarian aid to deaf children in Peru. He then enlisted in the United States Army Reserve. Mike also completed the US Coast Guard Auxiliary Building Skills and Seamanship course. He loved dirt biking and motorcycles, a passion he shared with his Dad from an early age and through which he expressed his inner daredevil. Michael served as an altar boy at St. Phillips Church and was Padi certified diver. He was also the owner of Cherry City Cycle repair shop. Although Michael struggled with depression and addiction he will be remembered as a kind soul in an angry world.

Besides his parents he leaves his beloved younger brothers Julien, Jimmy and Ty. His grandparents Debra Hinds and her husband Michael, Doris Cherry and the late Douglas Cherry, Stephen Wright and Robert Gatto. He also leaves his favorite aunt and Godmother Amy Gatto, uncles Jonathan Wright and his wife Nicole, Jason Wright and his wife Lisa, several cousins, his extended Cherry family, Scott Collins and Michael McInnis.
