Percy Earnt Respect; Family Man Was Hard Worker and Community-Minded


Percy Kerle

Born: Marburg, November 21, 1916.

Died: Ipswich, January 5, 2011.

PERCY Kerle was respected for his hard work in the community and loved by his family for his everlasting devotion.

In June 1942, Percy married Mabel Profke and they had three children Co Marjorie, Doreen (who died in 2008) and Norman.

Percy bought a Mt Walker property in June 1951 for 911 pounds 13 shillings. The school was down the road and within walking distance.
