Mr. Kerr was very supportive even after graduation. I will never forget his sense of humour and gentle guidance. He was an inspiration to all of his students. Condolences. He will be remembered fondly.

I was saddened to learn of John"s sudden passing. I miss our conversations at the local Post office. Usually John was asking about the children he had taught. In the past John worked quietly but tirelessly for the Oxbow Emergency Support group.

I wish to send condolences to all of John’s family. I was shocked and deeply saddened by his sudden passing. John was a good friend of mine, we taught together for many years at OPHS, and we’re both members of the Oxbow Emergency Support Fund. Although we didn’t see each other in the last few years, we had many long phone conversations .

I was shocked and very sorry to hear of John’s passing. John was a good friend of mine. We worked together at the school, and later we both served on the Oxbow Emergency Support Group. Although I haven’t see him much in the last few years, we had many long telephone calls, speaking about numerous topics. I will miss him. I’m sending my condolences to all of John’s family.

Our community and school was so blessed to have this kind and gentle Teacher and Mentor. I always enjoyed visiting with him and he never failed to ask how the kids were doing. Sending our deepest sympathy to all of John’s friends and family.
