Uncle Jim was always so kind and caring and enjoyed spending time with his family. This was from an extended family get together back in 2016.
We are praying for peace and comfort for all his family and friends.
Love,
Katie Wolters and family

Condolences to the whole Kerber clan from the VanSickles. We will never forget when you moved to Middleville and accepted me as part of your family for the next several years. While basketball was certainly central to our shared story, our times together as families meant even more. Rest in peace, Jim Kerber.

Happy Fathers Day 2021. He wanted to drive the bulldozer and we got him on it and he has a happy man for 3 days of driving it before the rains came.
