Of Washington, DC passed peacefully on July 9, 2018 of complications from cancer. Son of Howard C. Wiener, Jr. and Evelyn Dunne Wiener, Kerry was born in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University and Duke University School of Law and served as an Air Force JAG in Washington and Turkey from 1973 to 1978. He became a Foreign Service Officer in 1978, and served with distinction in Washington, Bogota, Paris, Moscow, and Cairo, retiring in 2005. After retirement, he accompanied his wife on assignment to Istanbul, and later enjoyed being a docent at the National Museum of American History. Kerry is survived by his loving wife of 48 years, Sharon Anderholm Wiener; son Eric Christopher Wiener (Eleanor Smith); daughter Kristin Evelyn Wiener (Christopher Chuang); granddaughter Evelyn Frances Wiener; and sister Susan Wiener Roetcisoender (Robert). He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Mark. A kind and gentle soul, with a devilish sense of humor and time for all, he was loved, and will be missed, by everyone who knew him. There will be a celebration of his life for friends and family at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.
