Remembering John F. Herrick
It is with great sadness we share the news that John F. Herrick, a retired Cleveland real estate executive, attorney, hall of fame athlete, and civic leader, passed away peacefully at his home in Shaker Heights, OH on October 25, 2022, surrounded by family. In 1986, Jack was inducted into the GCSHOF; two years later he joined the Hall’s Board and served as President from 1996-2020. To honor his legacy, in 2021 the GCSHOF created the Jack Herrick Youth Sports Fund to provide grant funding to qualified youth sports organizations throughout Northeast Ohio.
Bernie Kosar, Katie Nageotte, Carol Russo, and Tom Hamilton were inducted into the Greater Cleveland Sports Hall of Fame on Tuesday, October 18, 2022.
