The Kerr family welcomes you to an online memorial dedicated to the memory of Dr. Eugene Garner “Gene” Kerr.

Gene Kerr, loving husband, brother, father and grandfather, died at age 76 of complications from Parkinson’s Disease and congestive heart failure at the Island Health and Rehabilitation Center on Bainbridge Island, Washington at 6:30 AM on January 9, 2012.  He passed away peacefully in his sleep the day his hospice care was to begin.

This website is dedicated to the memory of Gene’s life and career. We invite you to view and share memories of Gene via the Blog and the Photo Gallery.  You are invited to contribute your experiences, personal and professional, with Gene over the years.  Simply fill out and submit your contributions via the “Share a Memory of Gene” form found on the right sidebar of every page and blog post of this website.  You are also encouraged to submit comments on and clarifications to published memories (memory can be a tricky thing, after all).
