Terry Blair Kerr, Sr

April 4, 1968 — March 4, 2019

Terry Kerr, Sr. passed away March 4, 2019 at home after a 7 year battle with renal failure. Terry was born April 4, 1968 in Battle Creek, MI. He was an avid outdoorsman, a jack of all trades, and a dedicated father. At a young age, Terry learned the ups and downs of life; through his mistakes, he developed a heavy work ethic and strong willed mindset. Terry was a fighter and always stood up for what he thought was right. He had truthfulness about him and never left anybody wondering if he was being true. Terry was brutally honest and straight-forward.  His candid and authentic personality was deeply embraced by his family and close friends. Establishing a career in construction, Terry had extensive knowledge in concrete, carpentry, and roofing. He confidently operated heavy machinery, maintained a CDL license, and traveled to jobsites across the country including: Michigan, Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, Wyoming, and California. Throughout his travels, Terry became passionate about the outdoors. He loved fishing, camping, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, and exploring. He was also extremely passionate about football and a die-hard Chicago Bears fan. In January 1993, he became a father to Terry Blair Kerr, Jr. (TJ). Terry was a dedicated father and his greatest love was TJ. He passed along his passion of football to TJ and together they spent countless hours cheering for the Chicago Bears. Terry spent years coaching TJ’s rocket football teams and not only attended, but also video-taped, every football game in TJ’s career through middle and high school. Terry and TJ also shared many camping trips with family that include comical stories of canoe trips gone wrong, rafting mishaps, and getting lost in the woods. The stories are endless and Terry is remembered to have a hysterical sense of humor in times of chaos. Terry was a loving husband and widower to his wife, Debra Kerr. Debbie passed away to cancer on December 27, 2010. Through this tough loss, Terry remained a fighter and pushed through the daily challenges of losing his spouse. Terry loved to laugh and tell jokes. He kept a small circle of friends and family and was always happy to lend a helping hand where possible. He loved those in his circle to great depths and never turned down an opportunity to sit down and make friendly banter with those he cared for. Terry is survived by Terry Kerr, Jr.; son, Belinda Pineda; mother, Fidel Rodriguez; brother, and several nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by Debra Kerr; wife, William Pineda; father, and Jamie Kerr; sister. Arranment by Parchment Redmond Funeral Home 2300 East G avenue Parhment, Michigan  49004
