"HED" 2007 Obituary


HEDGER o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-01-06 published
KERR, Robert " Bob" (October 5, 1911-December 30, 2006)
Wing Commander Royal Canadian Air Force
Peacefully at Saint-Vincent Hospital, Ottawa in his 96th year. Loving husband of the late Helen (HEDGER.) Dearly loved father of Roberta LOWES (Brian) and Dawn SKINNER (Bob.) Proud grandfather of Laura LOWES (Huber,) Sara LOWES, Matthew SKINNER (Lauren) and Luke SKINNER (Alexandra.) Delighted great-grandfather of Kieran and Masha. Predeceased by sister Greta DOW and brother David KERR. Survived by sister Betty AAK (Andy.) Bob joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1929, serving in England, France and across Canada. While stationed at Uplands Ottawa, he was proud of his role in the building of affordable military housing and in the volunteer construction of the Uplands Golf Course. His role was recognized by naming the clubhouse "Kerr House". Upon retiring in 1963, Bob joined the Ontario Department of Labour in Construction Safety, where he earned the workers' respect with his sense of dedication, integrity and fairness. His second retirement allowed ample time for golf at the Ottawa Hunt Club where he continued to play well into his 90s. Bob saw the best in everyone and in every situation. He loved selflessly and wholly. His energy and drive will be greatly missed. No more stairs to climb.
