Horace Kerr was born in the beautiful and balmy country of Montego Bay Jamaica, on the 21st day of June 1943, to loving parents: Albert and Violet Kerr. He was the 6th of 10 children (Rhuel, Carmen, Oswald, Slater, and Ronald preceded him in death).
He received his formal education in Jamaica. As a young man he married, and of that union were born 2 sons, Mark and Marlon Kerr.
In 1981 he traveled to New York in the United States, where he resided for a time.
In 1983, he decided to move to Miami, Florida to settle and pursue life, first becoming a legal resident and appropriately following a citizen of his new country.
In 1985 Horace married again, and shortly after was baptized in, and became a dutiful member of St. Matthew Missionary Baptist Church, where he served as a member of the male chorus.
Horace was a heavy equipment operator and tractor-trailer driver for the Brewer/DeMoya company until he retired in 2012.
In March of 2013 he became disabled as the result of a motor vehicle accident. Due to overwhelming health challenges, he was recently admitted to the hospital, and on Friday, August 18, 2023, our LORD and SAVIOUR called him home to rest.
Horace leaves to cherish his memory: a devoted wife, 2 sons, 1 step-daughter, 6 grandchildren, 2 brothers: Silvera (Ms. P), and Michael, 2 sisters Joann, Jean (Norman), and a host of nieces, nephews, family, and friends.
