  1. I had the privilege of working with Kerry for 10 years at Dixie State University. One thing that always impressed me was his honesty and integrity. He sometimes tried to act a little gruff and uncaring at times and would often say that you “hurt his feeling”, insinuating that he only had one. However, I found him to be completely the opposite! He has a very kind and caring spirit and was really kind of a marshmallow at heart once you got to know him. I was definitely saddened to hear of his passing and he will be missed by myself and many others.
