WR Herchick, 51, a lifelong Mentor resident, passed away July 11, 2018 at Hospice House in Cleveland. He was born December 19, 1966 in Cleveland.

WR (Dubs) was very active in many Special Olympic sports. Skiing, track and field, swimming, softball, basketball, and cycling. In 1999 he was chosen to compete in cycling at the world games in North Carolina. He proudly came home with two silver medals and the presidential medal. He loved listening to music and dancing, especially to Grease. Throughout his life his family, friends, and coworkers were so very important to him. WR was the oldest of five and a hero to his siblings, and the best big brother. He was known by all as giving the best hugs. One of the most important things for Unkie Dubs was to spend as much time with his nieces and nephews. He would go to many of their school and sporting events and be their biggest cheerleader, especially Riverhawk football games. He enjoyed life to the fullest, and always had a smile on his face.
Survivors include his mother, Beth Holzheimer; father, Frank Herchick; siblings, Thomas (Shannon Hill) Herchick , Shannon (John) Browne, Camee (Tate Andersen) Jastromb, and Frank "FJ" (Rachel) Herchick; and his nieces and nephews, Samantha, Tommy, Tony, Dearien, Shanelle, Luke, Faith, and Christian. He was also survived by many other loving family members and friends.
