Kerr, Miller W. "Paddy"  
Miller W. Kerr "Paddy", a native of Baton Rouge, LA and a resident of Richmond, VA for the past seven years, passed away on August 10, 2016 at his home at the age of 82. Miller, known to friends as "Paddy" (nickname originated from his birthday on St. Patrick's Day) was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He graduated from Baton Rouge High School. As a teenager, he participated in Boy Scouts, was an Eagle Scout, and spoke fondly of attending Philmont Scout Ranch summer camps with his friends. He graduated LSU with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. He was commissioned into the US Army through ROTC and served in the Ordnance Corps. While on active duty, his duty stations included Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MD, Orleans, France and Germany.

A short time after returning to Louisiana, he was transferred to Ohio and then Pennsylvania. He met his wife, Mariella while working in Pittsburg, PA. Miller's proudest accomplishment is being the father of triplets, which defined him and his family. He returned to Baton Rouge soon after the triplets were born to be closer to family and raise his children in the community that he loved. He was a member of Broadmoor Presbyterian Church. He valued civic duty and community service and as such was a life-long and active member of the Edgewater Kiwanis Club. He looked forward to annual summer road trips to national conventions where he brought his family to, providing an enriching experience for his children. He maintained an avid interest in reading, particularly military history, politics, and current world events. He was also a life-long, dedicated LSU football fan and attended home games regularly for many years. He is survived by wife, Mariella Kerr of Richmond, VA; daughters, Kerri Sander of Richmond, VA, Kristi Kerr of Cary, NC; son, Jamie Kerr of Portsmouth, VA; and a sister, Peggy Plunkett and her husband Billy Plunkett of Natchitoches, LA.

Landry, Douglas Lee 'Doug'  
Douglas "Doug" Lee Landry, 79, passed away Tuesday, August 23, 2016, in Baton Rouge. Doug was born July 29, 1937, in Belle Rose. He was preceded in death by his parents, Louis "Nootsie" and Mable Sternfels Landry. He is survived by his wife of nearly 58 years, Geraldine Acosta Landry; his sister Sally Landry Delery; his sons Greg Landry and wife Nancy, Chris Landry and wife Mollie; his daughters Kim Landry Jaquillard and husband Paul, and Ann Landry Rosa and husband Owen; his eight grandchildren Rachel Landry Fry and husband Chris, Rebecca Landry, Paul Jaquillard, Parker Jaquillard, Douglas Landry, Christian Landry, Lee Landry, and Arianna Rosa; and a great-grandchild Evelyn Fry. Doug, who was affectionately referred to as Gramps by his grandchildren, was a graduate of Nicholls State University and received his master's degree from Louisiana State University. He was a life-long learner and dedicated educator who retired after 37 years serving as a teacher, a principal, and a supervisor in Assumption Parish Schools. He loved to read and travel and enjoyed taking long road trips with his best friend and wife, Gerry. He made it a point to not only see each state, but also to sit in every major stadium in the U.S. even if it required talking his way in with a custodian or by another "creative" entry. He was a true sports enthusiast and coach to many throughout his life. He loved to play basketball and bowl early in his life, and then he spent countless hours following his own children and then his grandchildren as they participated in sports - wherever they competed. He especially loved LSU basketball and was a season-ticket holder for many years until the death of his long-time basketball buddy several years ago. Doug was known for his quick wit and tenderness. He was a kind and gentle soul - "slow to anger and rich in kindness" and will be sorely missed by all, including his most recent friends and caregivers at Ollie Steel Burden Manor. Visitation at St. Elizabeth Church in Paincourtville will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Friday, August 26, followed by the Mass of Christian Burial at 12:00. The burial will follow at St. Elizabeth Cemetery. Doug's family is especially grateful for his many caregivers at Ollie Steel, his special angel Nita Vincent of Hospice of Baton Rouge, and Rev. Andrew Merrick for his countless home visits and spiritual support. In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to Hospice of Baton Rouge at www.hospicebr.org or 9603 Seigen Lane, Baton Rouge, LA 70810.
