Kerry was our pianist for the weekly Communion service where we live. He donated his services. He was in a wheelchair. He never missed a service even if it meant he had to wheel himself for 15 minutes. Many times Kerry arose arising from a sick bed to play for our services. He was a great friend and I miss him dearly. Kerry, rest in peace. No more "Hands Up" for you!

words fail. Kerry was a great friend growing up. We did so much together - music, church, swimming, laughing. What a great guy. I'm stunned. Helene - if you're reading this, please let me know how to contact you.

The sad loss of a long time family friend is only slightly balanced by the many happy times we shared. RIP Kerry.

Kerry was a wonderful man that we had the pleasure of singing with at both Zion and St. Michael's church. He truly had a gift for music and a pleasant and accommodating personality. He will be missed in the Fort Myers church community.
