Gregory Scott Kerr was born September 16, 1961 at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama to Leonard William Kerr and Helen Stewart Kerr. Greg grew up in Charlotte, NC and graduated from East Mecklenburg High School in 1979 and from UNCC in 1983 where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and lettered in track. Following his graduation, Greg worked as a computer programmer at Computrol, Inc. Greg enjoyed studying the Bible, listening to BBN (Bible Broadcasting Network) on the radio, writing reflections of his life, fishing, telling jokes, and spending time with family and friends. Greg passed from earth to heaven peacefully in his sleep on Easter Sunday morning, April 17, 2022. Greg loved Jesus and shared his faith with everyone he met. His sweet gentle spirit, funny sense of humor, stories, and love for people and Jesus lit up our world.
