Rick Allen Kerr

April 22, 1953 ~ October 1, 2020 (age 67)


Rick Allen Kerr went to be with his Savior and sons suddenly on October 1, 2020.  He was born April 22, 1953 in St. Ignatius, Montana to Ralph and Jane Kerr. 

Rick grew up in Charlo, Montana with his 4 sisters.  He graduated from Charlo High School in 1971. 

Rick could build anything with his hands, he was quite handy at fixing anything.  He enjoyed tinkering in his shop and building wood projects.   His yard always looked immaculate as he loved having a nice yard, in fact, he eagerly anticipated mowing and often mowed several times per week, always changing up the pattern.  He also appreciated a nice-looking, fast running hot rod.  The last hot rod Rick and the family completed was his late son Daryl’s ’57 Chevy which was a labor of love and is most cherished!

Rick was endlessly patient with his wife, daughter, and granddaughter, as their shopping companion/chauffeur. He also very much enjoyed watching his granddaughter’s sporting events.

Although Rick could appear reserved, his character would come out when you got him going.  You always knew you could stop in for a chat and a smile. He always had a good story to tell, which would leave you laughing.

Rick retired as a Foreman with the Lake County Bridge Crew after 39 years.  There was not a job to do that Rick and Richard did not take on.  He also served as a volunteer Fire Fighter for 20+ years.

He was preceded in death by his parents Ralph and Jane Kerr, his two sons Daren and Daryl Kerr and his sister, Shelly Kerr. 

He is survived by the love of his life of 45 years Punk Kerr, daughter, Shandice (Andrew) Kerr; three sisters, granddaughter Shalayne Ostler and grandson Gage Kerr.

Non Covid death. There are no services planned at this time for Rick.
