OSWEGATCHIE – Timothy "Tim" P. Kerr, age 51, of Oswegatchie, passed away on September 24, 2018 at the Clifton-Fine Hospital.
Tim was born on May 20, 1967 in Star Lake to Arlene J. (Gish) Kerr and the late Kenneth "Doc" Kerr. He graduated from the Clifton-Fine Central School in 1985 and worked for the Newton Falls Paper Mill before working in construction. For ten years he had worked as the Head Mechanic for the Wanakena Ranger School and has been on dialysis for the past three years.
Tim loved to ride motorcycles and to go four-wheeling. He was the type of guy to help anybody who needed it and was loved for that. He cooked at many BBQ's and volunteered to groom the miles of trails for the Cranberry Lake Snowmobile Club.
His survivors include his mother, Arlene Kerr of Oswegatchie; his sons, Ryan Kerr of Arizona, Tyler Kerr of Madrid; and his brother and sister-in-law, Dean and Betty Kerr of Fine. He is also survived by his nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends.
Tim is predeceased by his father, Kenneth "Doc" Kerr.
