Don Cherry, Singer by Night and Golfer by Day, Is Dead at 94

NY Times | August 21, 2018

Don Cherry, a leading pop singer of the 1950s who performed at clubs and hotels by night while becoming one of America’s top amateur golfers by day, died on April 4 at a hospice in Las Vegas. He was 94.

His death, which was not widely reported at the time, was confirmed by his son Shawn.

Growing up in his native Wichita Falls, Tex., Mr. Cherry was immersed in both music and golf.

[APOLOGIa] Sorry, gang, this teaser wants the reader to click on a link to Mr. Cherry's NY Times obit and IMHO he's not worth wasting a free look-up.]

Also not to be confused with Don Cherry (1936-1995), the jazz trumpeter and father of singers Neneh Cherry and Eagle-Eye Cherry.

Given that I just digitized two of his 1950s 45s within the last week,
I'd like to take credit for this.
