December 20, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta
The family of Bill Kerr is sad to announce his passing on Saturday, December 20, 2014 at the age of 68 years.
He touched many lives and will be deeply missed. Bill loved life and lived it to the fullest, always wanting to put a smile on everyone’s face. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. His passions in life were his family and friends, being a firefighter (retiring as Captain), travel, and sports (playing and watching).
