KERSHAW, Terry passed away in his home on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 at the age of 63. Terry was born in New York City on March 9, 1952 to Elise Hollis. He dedicated his life to his family and the education of our future scholars. He was the beloved husband and soulmate of Marilyn (Davis) Kershaw for 37 years; a loving father to Kiarri and Njeri, father-in-law to Dave and Ben, and “Papa T” to Kaila, Zoe, Skylar, and Malik. He was the cherished son of the late Lucille Kershaw and a dedicated brother to Willie, Lizette, Sadie, Glenda, Nina, Kim, David, Nick, Mary and his brother in-law Gregory; along with his “brothers from another mother” George, Charles, Lenny and Kenny. Terry was an uncle, mentor, and confidant to his nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of friends. Dr. Terry Kershaw will also be missed by his colleagues, friends, and students from the College of Wooster, Temple University, Virginia Tech, and the University of Cincinnati. New York was Terry’s first home and his heart never left; he was a die-hard fan of the Yankees, Giants and the Knicks. YES EVEN the KNICKS.
