Cherilyn passed away after her battle with cancer. While the cancer took Cherilyn from us, it never crippled her love for others or silenced her courage. It will also never take our memories of Cherilyn. Her friends loved her, and everyone she met was instantly her friend.
She had the love of her husband, Merle, and the many members of her family including her son, daughter, step-children, brother, sisters, thirteen grandchildren and great grandchild. Cherilyn will be missed by her family and friends. Her SCRC extended family will forever miss her and remember her favorite saying – FOCUS.

Born in Columbus, OH and raised in San Antonio, TX. Bobby joined the Navy in 1981 and proudly served his country as a Chief Petty Officer until his retirement in 2001. He continued to work with the military in naval flight training. His real passion in life was working with youth sports programs and spent much of his time officiating softball, football and basketball.
Bobby joined the Southern Cruisers in April 2005. When he first became a member, he did it just to find people with the same interest that he had in motorcycling but the fellow riders he met soon became his friend.
Bobby was buried at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery in San Antonio with full military honors. He will be missed by all but we can all cherish the memories of knowing him.
