John Cherry Death, Obituary – Due to the passing of John Cherry, who was a devoted member of our volunteer group, we are in a state of extreme mourning. Despite the hopelessness we feel about the situation, we are compelled to break this news to you because we have no choice. After showing his appreciation for our organization by working as a tour guide for the Arctic Corsair, John decided to become a member of our group in 2015. Prior to that, he had volunteered his services to the Arctic Corsair.
In addition to that, he had a profound interest in the history of fishing in Hull, which was a passion that he had had with him throughout his entire life. He had this obsession with the past of fishing in Hull. During the course of the previous year, John had been lending a hand to various preservation initiatives in order to be ready for the reopening of the North End Shipyard and Maritime Museum.
This preparation was being done in anticipation of the museum’s move to a new location. This was done in advance of the museum’s reopening, which is coming up soon. During this difficult time, we are keeping his family, along with all of his friends and acquaintances, in our thoughts and prayers. We are also keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers.
