Sidney B. Kerr, age 86 of Lowell, left our world, Friday July 10, 2020. He was a beautiful soul, who is now reunited with his lifelong sweetheart, Carole Gean Kerr (Burch). Sidney like many of the Kerr’s who have gone before him lived a long and fulfilling life in Vergennes Township. He was also preceded in death by his parents, Leonard and Ruth (Fero); brother, Leonard (Gloria) Kerr. Sidney is survived by his children, Richard (Mary Jo), Karen (Dave) Pedley, Bev (Craig) Vanderstelt; grandchildren, Anthony Pedley, Dustin (Dena) Pedley, Casie (Justin) Quist, Zac Vanderstelt, Brianna Vanderstelt, Lok Vanderstelt; great-grandson’s, Connor Pedley, Oliver Quist; and brother, Gordon (Char) Kerr. He was a great companion to his brothers, loving husband to Carole and an amazing father to his children. His grandchildren brought so many smiles to his face as they called him “PaPa”. Sidney was a very inquisitive man yet very self-less to many who had the privilege to know him. Family isn’t always blood, but the people in your life who mean so much to you as Jim, Bill and the Newhof Crew has been. He was also a great uncle, friend, and community member. Family was very important to him and will forever remain in our hearts for his love, kindness and enduring support and will be missed greatly. The family would appreciate in lieu of flowers you would consider a donation to Kindred Hospice, 625 Kenmoor Ave., SE Suite 115 Grand Rapids, MI  49546 who helped the family go through this journey and for keeping Sidney at peace. A private family graveside service will take place at a later date.
