On Monday our club is presenting a Paul Harris Fellow posthumously to past Mosman Rotarian, David Kerr. David’s wife Sharon will be accepting the award. Below is a brief obituary drafted by PP Ward after David passed away :
David Kerr, a past member of the Rotary Club of Mosman, passed away last week in the Royal North Shore Hospital
David was a member from 2014-2018 during which time he and his wife Sharon made a substantial contribution to the success of our club (Sharon was an outstanding Editor of our Oozoo)
David had previously been a member of the Sydney CBD Rotary Club, having been a President and, as with Mosman, played a key role in many projects.
The highlight of David’s service with us was as Director of International Service (2015 – 2017). His professional background in senior finance and general industry roles was evident as he ensured the disciplines of project planning, due diligence, risk assessment and governance were imbedded in the projects undertaken by the team.
The International Services team under his leadership were recognised in 2016 when they won the prestigious Rotary District 9685 International Service award (team members were Charlie Barnett, Clare Stockdale, Blair Lesley, Danny Low and Halyna Koscharsky)
David was extremely capable and a person of high integrity.
