  2. Hi, you are fortunate you found me, my name is Troy. Kerry was married to my aunt Diane, my mothers sister for almost 40 years until the day he died. I also received a phone call from my aunt Diane in Portugal on the day he died. In the 80's Kerry use to have a shop in China Town on View Street in Victoria BC, a three story building. I use to go there to play and watch Kerry do his craft , his art. He was a true humanitarian and brought peace, joy and well being threw his work and just his nature. His wife Diane Kerry, my auntie returned back to Canada after his death to take care of what ever affairs they had and now she has returned back to Portugal. I have several pieces of his art work that have been given to me since I was a teenager. I loved him very much and he will always be in my heart. I was also was at his wedding when he married my aunt. I know so much please contact me. Lets make him live on.

  3. In the early eighties I've been in close contact with Kerry and Diane for several years. We all lived in Lisbon at that time. KK had his glass studio in Lisbon and Diane arranged expositions in the same house.I had to get back to Amsterdam and some time later they went to Victoria Island for arts sake. (Diane completed an opera that she started writing while living in Colares). I am sad to hear that KK passed away while we both are living in Portugal again and neither of us knew. I would love to get in touch with Diane but have no clue where to find her. Can someone (maybe her cousin) pass my email adress to her? I'm living in Pedrogao Pequeno, central Portugal, near Serta.

  4. Good day,
    I'm afraid these pages are out of order. Early this year I posted a question relaxed to the subject but never got any reply. Where did I go wrong?

    Warm regards
