He was a cherished member of the Eagle Drive Baptist Church family. Kerry was always the life of the party with his witty jokes and outgoing personality, you could not be in the same room as him without laughing. He and his son, Tucker, were constantly in competition of who could tell the best jokes. He adored his children and tried to be as involved as possible in their lives. He coached many little league teams throughout the years as well as just about every other sport that the kids decided to try out.
