It is with sadness we announce the passing of Bruce Alister Kerr, known to his family and many friends as Bo. Bruce was born in Sydney on July 4, 1948. A son of the late Murdock and Annie Kerr. He was predeceased by sisters Shirley (Ian MacNeil), Elaine (Robert Prier) and brothers Ken (Rita) and Don (Marge). He is survived by his sister Heather (Ross) Inkpen and three sons in Toronto. Bruce attended Sydney Academy and was an avid basketball and hockey fan, his favourite team being the Detroit Red Wings. A number of years ago, Bo suffered a stroke and has been a resident of Harbourstone Enhanced Care for the past six plus years. He received excellent care. Our heartfelt thanks go to the staff of that facility. Bruce was known for his wonderful sense of humour and loved socializing with his many friends. His nephew John MacNeil and good friend Kenny Langley were steadfast in their frequent visits to him and looking after his needs. We thank them. A funeral service will be held at 1pm on Wednesday, October 14, 2020 at TW Curry Parkview Chapel, 755 George Street, Sydney. Seating is limited due to restrictions.

I was so very sorry to see that Bruce passed away. I had been up to visit him and returned with chocolate at his request. We had a very nice conversation about the old days on Richardson Ave. A lot of memories there. He was a fixture at our place and loved to give our Mom a hard time. She enjoyed him picking at her. He will never be forgotten.

I'm so very sorry to hear of Bo's passing. He and I were great friends for a lot of years while growing up on Richardson Ave. We went our separate ways but were in touch from time to time. I will always remember. He was a good friend that I will never forget. The memories I have of him make me laugh since he was that kind of guy.
