Stephen M. Kerr

February 28, 1944 - September 14, 2008

Dr. Stephen M. Kerr, 64, of Mitchell, Neb., passed away Sunday, Sept. 14, 2008, while on a hunting trip in Colorado with his uncle and special friend Bill Heiman. He had been battling cancer.

Memorial services were held at 10 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 19 at the Mitchell Berean Church. Cremation services were performed in Colorado.

Memorial contributions may be made in Dr. Kerr’s name to the Panhandle Humane Society in Scottsbluff or to the Waggin’ Tails Animal Shelter in Torrington.

Dr. Kerr was born Feb. 28, 1944, in Indiana. In 1971, he received a Bachelor of Science degree in wildlife management from Colorado State University and was accepted into the university’s College of Veterinary Medicine the following year.

In 1976, Dr. Kerr was granted his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and dedicated the rest of his life to healing and protecting animals. Over the past 30-plus years in private practice, Dr. Kerr left a legacy that will live on forever in the hearts and souls of the patients and their owners whom he touched.

Dr. Kerr was proudest of his work with wildlife and especially raptors. He was named president of the Wyoming Veterinary Medical Association, an honor senior of the Wildlife Society, the Companion Animal Veterinarian of the Year – Leo Bustad Award, the Nebraska Wildlife Conservationist of the Year – Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, the Western Nebraska Wildlife Conservationist of the Year – Audubon Society.

He worked several years as a trail veterinarian on the Iditarod Sled Dog race and the Rocky Mountain (Pedigree) Stage Stop Sled Dog Race.

Survivors include his wife, Joanne; three siblings, Rick (Gayle) Kerr, Kevin (Lori) Kerr and Barbara Kerr; four children, Todd (Lisa) Kerr, Shane Kerr, Suzanna (Scott) Dever and Scott (Heather) Neu; and six grandchildren, Kate, Bryce, Derek, Charlie, Jake and the newest addition, Andrew.
