John Bapst Swim Coach Gary Isherwood has Passed

John Bapst swim coach Gary Isherwood passed away last weekend. Gary was out for a run when he collapsed. Isherwood was the conference swim coach of the year in 2014.

He was also the organizer of the Beach to Beach swim in Dedham, which raised money for Breast Cancer awareness.

There will be a memorial service at John Bapst high school tomorrow morning at 10:00

Longtime John Bapst swimming coach dies at 59

... “He came in with an awful lot of knowledge,” Old Town boys coach Dave Ploch said. “He worked with all levels [of swimmers]. He was someone who introduced kids to the sport.”

John Bapst athletic administrator Rick Sinclair noted that Isherwood was an outstanding coach to work with and will be sorely missed.

“He was a great mentor to the kids, he cared about all the kids,” Sinclair said. “He valued how they were as swimmers but also how they were as students and as a member of the community.”

Sinclair would not disclose the cause of Isherwood’s death, saying only that it was sudden.
