Original post made on Oct 26, 2011

It was a little past midnight on Oct. 20, 2011 when the Gunn High athletic community lost one of its most beloved members as Rich Scherer passed away. He was fondly thought of by many former student athletes and especially was loved by the football players as he was famous for his incredible cakes and his ever-present golf cart.

When I heard the name Rich Scherer, I immediately envisioned Mr. Scherer driving his golf cart around the GUNN campus, always making an effort to attend our swim meets and waterpolo games and showing his support for GUNN athletes. I remember Mr. and Mrs. Scherer baking us their extremely decadent "better than sex cake" when our Gunn teams beat rival Paly or another important league game. Fortunately, I got to eat that cake many times over my four years at GUNN, and it remains my favorite cake through today!
