SODEN, Kerry John, B.A., C.A. (1944-2007)
Managing Partner Soden and Co. Chartered Accountants, Chief Agent for Canada Knights of Columbus, Former Belleville City Councillor Kerry died peacefully with his family by his side on Tuesday, November 13, 2007. He was greatly loved and will be sadly missed by his devoted wife, Sheila. Beloved son of Kenneth and the late Bonnie SODEN. Loving father of Brian (Todd) and Craig (Corinne.) Proud grandfather of Madison Margaret. Dear brother of Larry (Julie), Casey (Leanne) and Rosemary (David) VROOMAN. Fondly remembered by his ten nieces and nephews. Kerry attended Nicholson Catholic College, Belleville and graduated from Saint Michael's College School, Toronto. He attended University of Toronto, Saint Michael's College, where he earned his B.A. in Economics. After obtaining his C.A. degree with Price Waterhouse, he returned to Belleville to join the family firm Soden and Co. Chartered Accountants. Sports were always a part of Kerry's life. Tennis at the Quinte Tennis Club was the highlight of his summer activities. Winter holidays were made even more enjoyable by winning 'Round Robin Tournaments' at the Pelican Bay Tennis Club, Florida. He loved nature and greatly enjoyed his quiet times with his family at their Cedar Lane cottage on Lake Ontario near Presqu'ile. He was an avid reader who especially enjoyed political biographies. Kerry never lost his unique 'inner child'. He was an honourable man, and a pragmatic optimist who knew he had lived a good life. Because of his longstanding love of politics, he ran and was elected for four terms as city councillor from 1982-1994. He was known as the 'White Knight' on council. He championed such causes as saving the waterfront and the preservation of the Farmers' Market in the Market Square location. The family extends sincere gratitude to Doctor L. LIETAER, Belleville and to Doctor Y.J. KO, Doctor Calvin LAW, Sharon LEMON, R.N., and Stefano ZANNELLA, PhM of Sunnybrook Hospital for their compassion and support. The family deeply appreciates the loving care provided by Doctor Bob VAUGHAN, Liz McGARVEY, R.N., his cousin Meg GILBERT, his sister-in-law Mary Lee KONNRY, and Father Richard P. WHELAN.
