I first met Kerry in 1971/72 playing club volleyball with the boys from Milk River under the wonderful coaching of Rev. Dave. Kerry was a coach's dream. He was the ultimate gentleman, highly skilled, driven, and unfailingly polite and generous, and always encouraging to his team mates. Never have IU met a kinder, more gentle soul in all my life. God's speed Kerry.

Our hearts go out to Donna and Kerry’s family. We met Kerry through Pickleball and he was the kindest mentor on the courts. Always played with a big smile, took the blame for bad shots we’d make and give us credit for any great shot he made (saying We set it all up for him). We will miss him and remember his playful spirit, such a good man. . Janice & Phil

My condolences to Kerry’s family and his family of many friends. I played volleyball with and against Kerry for many years. Always a class act and great player! I will miss his warm welcoming smile and friendly manner. Rest In Peace Kerry!

We know Kerry from Palm Creek Pickleball. Kerry played his heart out on the pickleball courts, but his heart always shown through in the way he treated people around him both on and off the courts. He greeted everyone with a smile and a kind comment. Fun to be around and a smile that was contagious. A true ambassador of the sport and of a life lived to the hilt.
Our heartfelt condolences to Kerry’s family. You got a good one there and we will really miss him.

Dear Uncle Kerry
One day Chris Hawthorne ( Yes, I called him out ) and I were at Grandma's house playing together.
We Were playing with a Teddy Bear, perhaps the better word is playing tug of war...., Imagine
how surprised we were that the Teddy Bear was dismembered . . I went to Grandma, showed
her, Grandma's reaction was not great, She was miserable, to say the least.
By now, you must be wondering why I am telling you this story, Uncle Kerry
Well, Uncle Kerry,
This Teddy bear had a name, .....His name was Punk Teddy,..( Wiping a tear from my eye)
I learned it was your teddy bear, Uncle Kerry , . I'm so sorry, please forgive me.
Love Robin
