Alastair Archibald Kerr

September 28, 1926 – February 19, 2019

It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of our Husband, Father, Grandpa and Great Grandpa, Alastair Kerr.  On February 19, 2019 he passed away peacefully at the Carman Memorial Hospital with Alice, his wife of 67 years by his side.

He was predeceased by his infant daughter Julia Leanne and his parents Alexander and Margaret Kerr.

He is survived by his wife Alice, his three children, daughters Heather (Doug) Giesbrecht, Fern (Raymond) Kerr and his son Howie (Tannis) Kerr.  Grandchildren Lori (Danny) Cooper, Leanne (Ron) Giesbrecht, Brody Kerr, Logan (Jessica) Kerr and Jenel Kerr. His three great grandchildren Blake, Cole and Rhae Scherman.

Alastair was born and raised in the Kilmory district and farmed in the area until 1960.  He and Alice and the girls moved to town where he worked for Carman Hospital and Boyne Lodge until his retirement in 1991.

During retirement he spent countless hours volunteering for the Handi Van and enjoying his hobbies, coin collecting, photography and his interests in gardening, bowling and traveling.

Alastair was a kind and thoughtful man who was always available to lend a hand to anyone in need. Alastair was extremely proud of his children and grandchildren and was always interested in their accomplishments and chosen paths.

As a family we want to take this opportunity to thank the Carman Memorial Hospital, Boyne Lodge and Home Care for the excellent care provided.  Thank you to the community of Carman and area for all your thoughts and prayers during this time. A special thank you to Marni Fry and Susan Mooney for the support you provided Alice and to Doyles Funeral Home for your compassion and guidance at this difficult time.

Donations can be made to Carman Palliative Care, Box 610, Carman, MB R0G 0J0 or Carman Handi Van, Box 1294, Carman, MB R0G 0J0.
