In Memoriam

John “Jack” Musser II

YMCA Southcoast mourns the passing of long-time member, board member and friend.

October 17, 1924 – July 2, 2015

Dr. David Greer

“YMCA Southcoast and the Fall River Y will be forever in Dr. Greer’s debt for his willingness to help lead the effort as Honorary Chair to rebuild the Y in downtown Fall River. We were blessed have his presence at the Y’s Squash court ribbon cutting event on October 27th where he shared his memories of time spend with dear friends at the Y. Our deepest condolences are extended to his family and loved ones.”

Drs. Sherm and Betty Gleason

In March 2011, only 8 days apart, we experienced the loss of two very special people.  Having lived long lives and always at Y events, it is difficult to imagine future gatherings without the presence of Dr. Sherm’s bowtie and gentlemanly demeanor, and Dr. Betty’s warm and contented smile.He was a true gentleman, and she was an amazing lady. The Gleasons cared for so many people in their lives through their parenting, their medicine, and their passionate support of youth and families in their community. They were genuine and generous people who meant a great deal to our Y and the entire Wareham community. Together, Betty and Sherm lived the Y mission of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.  Their dedication to building healthy families and communities will live on in the hearts of all who were touched or those who will be touched by their generosity in the years to come.
