Obituary of Kerry Kam
Kerry Mathew Kam passed away at Lloydminster Hospital, Lloydminster, Saskatchewan, Monday, August 8, 2022 at the age of 57 years.
Kerry Mathew Kam born March 13, 1965 in Kindersley SK, passed away August 8 2022.
Many people say it is about the dash between the two dates that define the person. Kerry lived his life to the fullest of his abilities, with a heart that accepted everyone but eventually failed him because it was tired.
From a very young age, Kerry was known to be the one to have adventures always following him. From the words of his Grandpa Missere, he was a real character.
Through the years Kerry was faced with health issues that impacted some of his food choices but this never stopped him from enjoying a Double Double from Tim Hortons.
Many of you may know that Kerry was a huge Elvis fan and wished one day to go to Graceland. His family always believed, that’s why he wore the long side burns many times throughout his life. ( I am sure he thought he was Elvis). One of Kerry’s Proudest Moments was bringing his little girl, Kristine, into this world and the honor of being called her father. Eventually Kerry was blessed with two grandsons which he loved so deeply.
Kerry managed to work in the oil industry into his late 30’s and then moved on to Border City RV where he worked with family until he retired due to health reasons. This didn’t stop him from being loyal to his family and still making trips out to Border City RV with his father to check things out weekly.
He had many hobbies growing up which included snowmobiling, water skiing, and dirt biking and very often left his mark of a scratch or dent in everything he drove.
As he moved into retirement, Kerry’s favorite pastime was going to Tim Hortons for coffee and visiting with friends. He knew everybody, and if he didn’t, he made sure to get to know you.
Kerry had such a huge heart and didn’t want to let anyone down. He was always the one to lend you a hand. He was very caring, determined, never complaining and took on his challenges head on.
We are very proud to call him our father, grandfather, son, brother & uncle.
Kerry is survived by: his daughter, Kristine (Shane) Kuntz and their children Brody and Mason; dad, Ken (Lorraine) Kam; step dad, Paul Wiebe; brother, Kenny (Sandra) Kam; sister, Karen (Garry) Siemens and their children, Jordan, Jeanna (Kyle) and Jayson; along with numerous other relatives.
