Obituary for Alfred B. Cherry

Alfred B.  Cherry
Alfred B. Cherry, 91, of Warminster, PA formerly of Huntingdon Valley, passed away on Sunday, November 15, 2020. Born on October 3, 1929 in Bronx, New York, Alfred was the son of Austrian immigrants Marie (Rosenitsch) and Michael Cherry and brother to Norman Cherry. He graduated from St. Regis High School and Manhattan College and worked as an environmental engineer.

Al married the love of his life, Genevieve (nee Gilmartin), and recently celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary. He was never happier than when he was all dressed up ballroom dancing with her in his arms.

Al was a strong patriarch of his family and did his best to teach good values and guide his four children: Robert Cherry (Beth) of Langhorne, PA, William Cherry (Mary Beth) of Bethlehem, PA, Kathy Uebelher (Mark) of Mercer, WI, and Susan Schmit (John) of Virginia Beach, VA.

He was also the loving and playful grandfather to 10 grandchildren (Abby Cherry, Drew Schmit, Emily Cherry, Julie (Cherry) Rutt, Kaitlyn Schmit, Lyndsay (Cherry) Pocorobba, Matt Schmit, Michael Cherry, Steve Cherry & Tom Cherry) and “great grandpa” to nine more. Grandpa knew what made children happy and what made them light up from the inside out (partly because he was a big kid himself.)

Al had a sentimental heart and always expressed how much he loved you and how proud he was of you.

Al enjoyed singing and harmonizing both in church choirs and at family gatherings. He loved a good (corny) joke and making people laugh. When he smiled his whole face lit up and his blue eyes sparkled!

All whom loved him dearly will never forget his wit, charm, playfulness and quiet strength. He had the mind of an engineer always curious to understand how things work. Al will be forever be remembered for his bright smile, gentle eyes, caring heart, and loving embraces. Although our hearts are heavy, we will celebrate his life and find comfort that he is in heaven watching over us.

Al & Genevieve are parishioners of Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Church in Southampton, PA. Funeral services will be held on Monday, Nov 23 at the church. Viewing at 10:00 AM and funeral Mass to follow at 11:00 AM. Masks are required and social distancing will be observed.

Al & Jean are grateful to have had many happy years living at Ann's Choice in Warminster. In lieu of flowers, you are invited to send a memorial contribution to Ann’s Choice Benevolent Care Fund. For details call 215.672.2900.
