Roger Allen Kerr, age 68, died peacefully on Thursday, May 26, 2022 at The Willows at Willard following an extended illness.

Born March 15, 1954 in Shelby to the late Richard "Dick" and Betty J. (Druschel) Kerr, Roger had been a lifelong Shelby resident. He was a graduate of Shelby High School before earning his bachelor's degree from Kent State University. He worked as a salesman for many years.
