Kerry was born in St. Thomas, Ontario to his parents Esther and Lloyd Shepherd. He was the fourth child born in the family of five. The family moved to Manitoba in the Portage la Prairie area in 1977. Kerry is remembered as being a loving but mischievous brother while growing up. He did lots of walking, many miles walking around town even with the last few years having a limp. Kerry had a sense of humour and liked to tease people. He lived one block away from his parents in Portage, so when they has company many times he would come over and enjoy food and companionship. In many ways he was still a solitary man. Kerry enjoyed meetings at the Portage Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
A private family viewing was held. A Zoom Memorial Service will be held by Jehovah's Witnesses at 7 pm on Thursday, January 7, 2021. Interment will take place at a later date.
A tree will be planted in memory and cared for by McKenzies Portage Funeral Chapel. www.mckenziesportagefuneralchapel.com
