Robert James Cherry passed away at his home in San Francisco December 21, 2015. A lover of nature, skiing, plants (especially orchids), and animals, Jim, as he was known, lived life with no regrets and an in-your-face honesty that his many friends loved him for. Born and raised in Wyoming, he was the son of Kathryn Adsit and Glen Cherry.

Jim is survived by his loving sister and brother, Tara Short and Dave Cherry; Tara's husband, Donovan; his beautiful niece Darrah; his devoted mother-in-law, Mary-Ann King; his very devoted husband, John Berge; and his dearest friend in the world, his little dog, Smokey. An accountant by trade, Jim is a graduate of Casper College and is a proud former president of the Golden Gate Business Association, the world's first LGBT chamber of commerce.

A celebration of life will be held in honor of Jim from 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday, January 23, at Sunnyside Conservatory, 236 Monterey Boulevard, in San Francisco.

Jim is loved by many and will never be forgotten. Jim �" from all your friends and loved ones, each in our own way, we want you to know you are deeply loved and missed, and we look forward to seeing you again someday.
