Please share a memory of John to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
John Kerr John Fredrick Kerr, age 68, passed away Saturday, September 27, 2008, peacefully at his home following a ten month battle with cancer. He was born on June 11, 1940 in Titusville and lived the last 38 years in Erie, with his wife, Julie, and his children. John worked in sales for CA Curtze Co since 1978, enjoying his work as much as his private time. You could always find John caring for his lawn, playing the lottery, BBQing with family and friends and enjoying the view from his front porch.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Fredrick and Martha Kerr, and his sisters, Mary Kerr and Annette Sabad. He will be dearly missed by his wife of 34 years, Julie DiPasquale Kerr, his brother, Bruce (Lynda), sisters: Isabelle (Paul) Dillon, Pauline Smith, Dorothy Burns (Don) and his children: John Jr. (Rochelle), Tina Lynn Brown, Christina Celetti (Mike), Jeff Cass (Laura), Kelly Jo Kerr, and Melissa Aquino (Mike).
