The man who directed the Boys Club of Seymour for 22 years until retiring in 1980 passed away Saturday at the age of 99.
Harry Cherry was referred to as “Mr. C” by the many boys who passed through the doors during his years of service there.
Cherry’s son-in-law, Steve Stanfield, said Cherry was a disciplinarian that treated everyone the same regardless of their social status, the amount of money they might have or their skin color. That was especially true when it came to the club’s no-hat rule.
