Will Kerr

Died March 13, 2005


Member William M. Kear died in 2005 at age 82. Will joined RBS in 2000 and attended most of our early Bones Fests. He learned to play rhythm bones in 1937 from a boy from Kentucky. He loved to play to country, bluegrass and bluegrass gospel music and performed the latter in his church. In his membership application he added, “I love to play them.” He was recruited into RBS by member John Davis who passed on the news of his death. His obituary from the newspaper stated, “He enjoyed gardening, playing the spoons/bones and maintained a lifelong ambition.”
