Dad was a true Renaissance man. He was a real romantic, but he was also a carpenter, inventor, writer, and most important to him, loving husband and patriarch.
Dad was born on August 21, 1933, the day before his oldest sister, Edna, passed away. He was the sixth of eleven children born to John and Annie Kehler. Dad loved his big family and regaled us all with many stories of his childhood including his brothers, sisters, cousins, friends and of course Felix the wonder dog.

A Lake County man has been dedicating his time and money to fix laptops and help families in need — all while he battles cancer.
Larry Kehler, better known as “Fox,” spends his days fixing laptops for people in his community. The project started several months ago when he reached out to a neighborhood Facebook group asking people in the area to give him their old laptops. Then, he fixed the computers and donated them. He had several families with children who were learning virtually reach out to him for help.
It is with deep sadness that we say farewell to our loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, sister and friend, Maria Giesbrecht (nee Kehler). Following a period of declining health, Maria passed away on December 5, 2020 at West Park Manor PCH in Winnipeg at the age of 93 years.
