Vale Paul Kerrison

issue1916-paul-kerrison-tributeIt is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of Paul ‘Kerro’ Kerrison and we offer our condolences to his wife, Sue, and his children, Jacob and Sarah, at this very sad time.

Kerro was a water person. He was an accomplished sailor and worked on the water. Later in life, Paul turned to coaching Water Polo. He touched a lot of people's lives in many ways, especially from his time as a Coach. Paul coached school teams at Cranbrook and Sydney Boys High as well as junior teams at Sydney University and Balmain. His final coaching role was at PLC Sydney in 2016. For Paul, it wasn’t about winning but about doing your best for the team. He wanted to make Water Polo fun and this was the message he passed on to his children, whom he loved to watch to play. 

Paul had an unquenchable appetite for all sports, Sailing, Rugby League, Rugby Union and AFL. He was a proud Balmain boy and would never miss a Drummoyne v’s Balmain game. Every chance they had, Sarah and Jacob would be sitting alongside him.

Paul Kerrison, struck down by cancer at just 55, passed away peacefully at home with his family. Paul will be terribly missed by Sue, Jacob, Sarah, his extended family and friends.

RIP Kerro.
