Among many hobbies, Kerry enjoyed motorcycles, cigars, cleaning, hunting, fishing, and fashion - sneakers, watches, and clothes. He was a fashionable guy. He also delighted in cooking and was admired for his "mean pasta sauce". Affectionately regarded as "Baby Kerry" and "Boo Boo", Kerry was confined to a wheelchair for 10 years, but he remained an optimistic encourager for all who crossed his path.
