Kerri-Anne Kennerley pays tribute to husband John following his death

A HEARTBROKEN Kerri-Anne Kennerley has taken to social media to pay tribute to her husband John, who passed away in hospital overnight at the age of 78.

The TV star confirmed that John died at Sydney’s St Vincent’s Hospital last night with her and son Simon by his side.

It comes almost three years after he suffered severe spinal injuries in a tragic balcony fall that left him wheelchair bound.


“It’s with a heavy heart and awful sadness that I let you know that my beautiful husband John passed away last night,” Kennerley’s Instagram post read.

“As you all know, John has faced some tremendous challenges over the past few years and with each he has been extraordinarily brave and determined to overcome those hurdles and live a normal life.”

“John, you were the love of my life.”
