January 21, 1944 – March 13, 2019
Glenn E. Kerr ’73-A was born on Jan. 21, 1944, to Lewis and Marie (Phillips) Kerr in Bowman, North Dakota, and died March 13, 2019.
Dr. Kerr received his elementary education in Bowman and then graduated from Sheyenne River Academy in Harvey, North Dakota. He attended Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska, graduating in 1968. This was followed by two years at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and three years at the Loma Linda University School of Medicine.
Following his internship, Dr. Kerr joined Duane J. Davidson ’57 and Leo Herber ’56 for about two years in an established practice in Thief River Falls, Minnesota. In 1976, he and J. Timothy Blackwelder ’73-A opened a practice in Jamestown, North Dakota. There Dr. Kerr remained for 12 years.
In 1988, he needed a change and returned to Loma Linda for a preventive medicine residency. He continued to live in the area and served the Beaver Medical Group in Redlands until he retired to Hermosa, South Dakota, in 2009. From that time until his death, he worked in the field of telemedicine.
Dr. Kerr’s interests outside of medicine include his beloved grandchildren, Bible study, fine art, gardening, and camping/canoe trips with his sons and their friends. Mission trips and health lectures in China, Mexico, and Russia were intensely exciting to him.
Dr. Kerr was preceded in death by his brother, Ervin. He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Sandy; his sons, Kimber and Kevin (Tamara); grandchildren, Haley and Harley; siblings, Ralph (Vonnie), Harry (Gloria), George (Melodee), and Ethel Buhler (Rick); and nieces and nephews.
