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.
Sunday, January 19, 2020 was an emotional night in Mitchell, MB when over 400 people braved the winter night to attend the official opening of the Mitchell Memorial Park. The park, built on the arena grounds between the outdoor hockey rink and tennis courts, consists of an outdoor pleasure skating area and in the center is an evergreen tree. Surrounding the rink is a path with several park benches along the perimeter. Park benches are sponsored by community families in remembrance of their loved ones.
The Kehler name is well known in the community of Mitchell, the area west of Steinbach, Manitoba. Early pioneer Jacob “Berliner” Kehler moved his growing family to farm here in 1891, where he began to build barns and buy livestock. The area was called Ebenfeld, modern-day Mitchell. After the death of Berliner Kehler, the family farm and land were sold to the Alfred Stahn family. Today there are fourth, fifth and sixth generations of Berliner Kehlers in Mitchell.
