October 21, 1929 – January 06, 2018
at the age of 88
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of (Venerable) Victor L. KERR on January 6, 2018 in Salmon Arm at 88 years of age.
Victor now joins his beloved wife, Barbara who passed away 5 years ago. Victor is survived by his and Barbara’s 5 children; Judith RUSSELL, Janice HRECHUK (Marcel KULBA), Jo-Ann MACDONALD (Rob), Jeffery KERR (Reta), Jeremy KERR (Tammy) and then their personally adopted Swiss family, Heinz, Andrea and Rahel (Dan) and family.There are also 14 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Along with this large family, are all the people touched by Victor through his life and work in the church.
Victor was born in 1929 in Chilliwack, B.C., moving to Saskatchewan but returning shortly after to Vancouver where he completed his schooling. Later he worked in the food and gas industries but a calling found him and into the ministry he went. He took his post secondary at the Anglican Theological College at UBC before embarking on his career which took him to a number of parishes in B.C. and Alberta. Finally retiring back to B.C. he and Barbara set up their retirement home in Sorrento on the Shuswap. He still continued some ministry work after retirement around some of the parishes in the local area, again touching those around him.
The family would like to thank the caregivers and staff at Piccadilly Terrace Retirement Home and then all the great help and assistance from the doctors, nurses, care-aides and staff at the Good Samaritan – Hillside Village. All of your efforts and caring are very much appreciated, especially in his final days.
May you rest now Dad, grandpa (Vic). Love from all your family and friends.
