Kerr-Barr, Devon Joseph Samuel

With broken hearts we share that Devon Kerr-Barr, beloved son, brother, grandson, uncle, nephew, and friend, passed away suddenly at his home on Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at the age of 31.

Those who knew Devon, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives. Even through his struggles, Devon was a kind, gentle and very loving soul. He had a smile that was like sunshine and had a natural gift with animals.

Devon will be forever missed by his Mom, Dawn (Harold Heibein), his Poppa Don Kerr, his brother Josh (Jacqueline), twin brother Dusk, and his sisters Camille (Sean), Whitney (Troy), and Lauren, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and his ‘Fur-Babies’.

We are comforted knowing that Devon is now with his Nana, Shirley Kerr and his Dad, Pete Barr.

‘We will always love and miss you Devon. You were a gift to this world.’

    To Dawn,

    I fondly remember your twins at SVE as being quiet and polite boys. I would always try to find a way to tell them apart and we would laugh about this.

    Sending kind thoughts your way,

    I did not have the pleasure of knowing Devon, nevertheless I am sincerely saddened by this news. In high school, one of my favourite people was Devon’s brother Josh. I remember prom, Mercedes rides and getting stuck, and orchestra trips to name a few. Because of the amazing people that both Josh and Dawn are, I know Devon had to be just as wonderful. Wishing you all love, support and comfort at this very difficult time.

    Hearing this news breaks my heart Dawn. Dear Devon knew much love in his short life, and couldn’t have had a better family. I know he will be surrounded by love always. Most people will thankfully never have to experience the loss of a child. Be brave and know you are not alone.

    Dawn and family,

    Very sorry for the passing of your son and brother. Although a young man, may Devon’s memories continue to bless your memories. Although Pete and I were the closest of friends in High School and travelled to Europe together, I never got a chance to meet his lovely family after I left Meaford for university. My deepest condolences.
