It is this day March 17, 2019 family mourns the loss of Richard Kerr 50, of Lima, OH passing in his home surrounded by those he loved. Richard lost his battle to cancer after 2 years accomplishing his journey serving others as a true servant of God which he did diligently everyday of his life. Richard was a graduate of Bath High School and Apollo Career Center pursuing a 26 year career in welding. He is survived by his wife and 2nd grade sweetheart Vicki, 3 children Brooklin(Aaron) Mauk, David(Morgan) Kerr, and Katlin Kerr, and 3 grandboys Tatum, Rocco, and Paxton, his loving mother Margaret Kerr, 4 siblings Toby (Kelly) Kerr, Missy (Eric) Faulkner, Tania (Dwight) Cole, and Davelle Everhardt, many nieces and nephews, and in laws. Preceded in death by his father and mentor David Kerr.
Richie loved spending time with his family and watching his grandsons play. One of his favorite past times was fishing with a great deal of his enjoyment coming from just sitting outside enjoying nature. He was able to make it to see the ocean for the first time and couldn’t wait to get back there again. Richie also enjoyed going to church and growing in the spirit. Per his wishes he will be cremated and a remembrance of life ceremony will be held at Herman Woods on March 31, 2019 from 2-5 pm and if unable to make it the door to our home is always open for visitors.

We miss you uncle richie, your nephews and nieces remember all of the times we spent with you. I remember the summers spent at the farm, the Halloween party one year, and the Christmas memories also. I hope you are enjoying heaven and have peace up there!

So sorry for you and your family's loss, Vicki. May God surround you with his loving arms and grant you peace and comfort during this time. I happened to see someone share the obituary on FB. My heart goes out to you because, I too, lost my first husband at a young age to brain cancer back in 2009. I have remarried since then, and my current husband now has had 4 strokes and he is only 55. Fortunately, he is in rehab and making some progress. Thankfully, I have had the Lord to see me through these trials. I pray that you too, can gain solace from knowing that the Lord understands your heartache and will see you through this. God Bless you and your family. Love in Christ, Carol (Beery) Craft On FB my profile name is Carol Gallaspie Craft...I kept the last name of my first husband and added the name of my second.

However, the pain of your loss is a normal human emotion! And I am praying for your family, during these difficult days. Love, Dwight's sister
