Good bye to John Kerr, the consummate used car guy

May 24, 2010


This morning I was saddened to learn of the recent passing on April 29th of John Kerr.  John was my father’s long-time partner, going back to the 1950s.  John oversaw used car operations for my father over the decades that they were together.  John was my first teacher of used car operations. 

John knew how to live, work hard and have fun both in and outside the dealership.  I know that he was very proud of his dealer’s son Bobby, owner of Lake Shore Ford Lincoln Mercury and Toyota Scion in Burns Harbor, Indiana.  John taught me much, and I will miss him greatly.
