A native San Franciscan, graduate of Lowell High School and Arizona State University, Willie was a loving father to his two children, Zac and Sarah, a devoted son, caring brother and good friend to many. Willie was the real life Peter Pan to several generations and lived life to its fullest with exuberance, reveling with friends wherever he went. He was the consummate sports fan; there was not a sporting event, past or present, for which Willie did not know the minutest detail. Willie was a fixture at Cherin's Appliances, the family business, for over thirty years. Willie is survived by his children, Zac and Sarah and their mother, Claire, siblings Feralee and Charles Levin, Don and Margery Cherin, Marty and Rise Cherin, Sue and Robert Rushakoff, and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Willie was preceded in death by his parents Adina and Lou Cherin.
