  • John Wherry (JWW)

    From Facebook-

    With great sadness, John Wherry Died today at 1:45 pm. Arrangements will be posted on Facebook.

    John was a great guy and a great friend. He posted on the Forum as JWW. Some may remember, he bought Molly, my 60 Lark wagon. I had always thought I might buy it back from him some day. I understand he had been ill for a while.

    RIP John. The Stude world, and in fact the world at large, has lost a quality person. Godspeed.

    Couildn't agree more, Bob. He was a great guy. When I lobbied folks to bring a car to my hometown Greenville, PA car show, John showed up not once but twice...once in his '64 Daytona convertible (TW cover car, Feb. '93) and another year in his red '63 Regal Wagonaire.

    John also graciously took me, my sister, and my B-I-L with him in the convertible around the Proving Ground track in '07 at South Bend when we didn't have our own Studes then to do so. I'm sure we slowed him down a bit, but he didn't show it.

    Here is John in the first pic in the link, from one of the Greenville car shows, and his red Wagonaire is shown in several photos later in the same link:

        John was a great guy,Brother Master Mason, and Loyal member of Keystone Region Chapter,among others. It was John who took our raffle car to the Wink's show and later to Summit Racing. He was a true gentleman in all ways and will be a real asset to his new home in Heaven.-----Enjoy eternity John--- We who are earthbound will join you in due time.

          We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

          Ayn Rand:
          "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

          G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

            I was STUDEBAKER, when STUDEBAKER wasn't "KOOL".

              John Wherry (JWW) was one of the finest gentlemen that I have met during my 40+ years in the SDC. We enjoyed many great times together, and I will surely miss his friendship and kindness. The Allegheny Region Chapter has lost a great one.

                John and I grew up seven years, but only a mile, apart. I don't know if we ever made contact with each other in our hometown; I only met him after years in the SDC. Our conversations were more about our hometown and memories of the people we knew and the way things were forty or fifty years ago than they were about our Studebakers.
                These vehicles are just an excuse to gain introduction to new friends, share the moments, and regret the time not spent together when we find them departed.
                Will miss you, John. And the times not shared.

                  JWW was a friend to all he met and he never met a stranger, I always enjoyed myself in his company, he had a wonderful
                  personality. He was a rare kind of guy, and leaves a gap in our hearts, God Bless you John, se ya on the other side.

                      John was here at my shop at least 3 times a week. We talked Studebakers, girls, and what ever would solve the world's problems. My wife Ellen called him "SUNSHINE". Everytime he heard that he got a big smile on his face. Him and us would meet on Thursdays with a few other local people to enjoy a bottle of wine or two. Everyone that met John for the first time, walked away with a new friend. I doubt if I will ever meet another like him. John was my best friend, and I miss him terribly.
