The Crusaders family have been rocked for the second time in a week after learning that Bo Kerr, another lifelong supporter of the club, passed away late last night.
Bo who never missed a game home and away would also be seen at reserve games, Crusaders Strikers matches, Crusaders Academy games and Development games at all levels on a regular basis, even up to a few weeks ago, showing his support for everyone and everything red and black. Bo would have known quite a few of the players at all these games by name along with the coaches and when you chatted with him he would often talk about how good some of the upcoming talent actually where and how he hoped to see them in the senior teams in years to come.
Ronnie Millar spoke greatly of Bo and said " Sadly once again I have to offer the sincere condolences from Crusaders Football Club to the family of a lifelong supporter of the club. Our thoughts and prayers go to the immediate Kerr family and also to his extended family at this difficult time. Matches at Seaview will not be the same without a word with Bo and he will be greatly missed by many around the ground. It is probably hard to find another supporter who attended so many games at all levels than Bo and on Saturdays would tell you all the games and results he had watched during the week. He had a great knowledge of players that played for Crusaders throughout the years and his spot beside Bobby Spiers in the stand will now be a huge void at games in the future"
"Our thoughts and prayers are with his family over the next few days and can I ask you keep them all in your minds these next few weeks as they come to terms with the loss of a wonderful man. Rest in peace Bo. You will be missed"
Bo Kerrs funeral sevice will take place from Wilton Funeral Home Shore Road/Doagh Road on Saturday 21st March at 9am and afterwards to Carnmoney Cemetry for burial.
