Douglas William Kerr
September 5, 1953 - October 22, 2018
Broken in body, but whole in mind and spirit, and rich in the things that matter
Late on a beautiful, crisp, sunny and blue-skied autumn afternoon - the kind of day he loved - Doug passed away peacefully at
home. A precious friend wrote to us recently and said, when the moment comes Doug will know how completely he has been loved. He did, and he was.
With Doug's deepest gratitude and in lieu of visitation following his passing, a joyous and life-affirming celebration of his life took place on Saturday evening, September 29th, with Doug as the guest of honour.
At Doug’s request, there will be a private family funeral. And, instead of flowers but only if you wish, please donate to a charity of your choice in his memory.
Thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts, for the many kindnesses you have shown Doug throughout the years but especially over the course of his last days. He cherished your friendship and your love sustained him.
With deep sorrow,
~Grace, Joe, Carly, Baby Teddy and Max

Doug I feel like I am talking to you now just like we used to. I have known you and Grace for over 44 years. Remember how we use to always sit down and talk mostly about cars when you were in your firebird and I was in my mustang in those early years of university. Then in our later years when you were in your Porsche and I was still in my mustang, granted a little newer. Sometimes it might have been a year since we saw each other last but it would seem like just the other day when we got together. I will sure miss that . I must admit that now there are tears running down my face. Grace and the family you have had a great loss , in a smaller way we all have for I would have called Doug a true renaissance man, there isn’t much he didn’t do in life and wasn’t good at. I believe Doug and I will talk again at a different time and a different place in the future and I look so much forward to that. Grace all my condolences and best wishes for you and your family to get through this , in this time of loss.

Our sincere condolences to you, Grace, and your family - Doug was much too young to go. I still remember the enthusiasm with which he leapt into the world of theatre way back in 1991 - it was always a pleasure to work with him and chat. "Foxfire" will always be a special show for me, and Doug was very much a part of that.

Dear Grace & family - We are just hearing this very sad news about Doug. I have known Doug since we were little. My parents (Lloyd & Mary) were very good friends of Bob & Lois. We want you to know we are thinking about you all at this most difficult time. "REST IN PEACE DOUG". With our deepest sympathy.... Brenda & Ross
