Normally, Larry Kehler and his wife, Cheryl, would be slicing pizzas and pouring beers for friends and tourists in their restaurant a couple of blocks from the shores of the scenic resort town of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
“We’d just be running our bar and partying,” said Kehler, who goes by the moniker “Señor Fox.”
It is with sadness that we say farewell to our mother, grandmother, great-grandmother Betty Dueck (nee Kehler).
She slipped away peacefully on Thursday, October 1st, 2015 with her family at her side. She was born on Friday, February 13, 1931 in the R.M. of Hanover to David S. and Helen Kehler. She was pre-deceased by her husband Gustav, her father, mother, one grandson and six brothers.
From time to time, when meeting new people and an introduction is made, the first question that will pop up is “from which Kehler family are you?” After having answered their question of who my father and grandfather is, oft times, the next question asked is “any relation to ______? ”
That blank will sometimes be Jake from the Husky Station. Followed by, the age old question of “Is it true that Jake and Edgar (Edgar’s Diner) were brothers? Jake would always deny it, while Edgar claimed they were brothers!” Since both brothers have passed on, for the record, they are brothers! From there the conversation usually turns to the great food Edgar had, back in the day — and his famous Veal or, as Edgar pronounced it — ‘wheel’Cutlettes.
On Thursday, October 9, 2014, peacefully and with great courage Gustav gained freedom from his battle with cancer at the age of 89, at the Bethesda Regional Health Centre in Steinbach. He was born on December 23, 1924, in the RM of Hanover to Peter F. and Aganetha Dueck as the 4th eldest of ten children. He was predeceased by his parents, three brothers, three sisters, and one grandson.
Remaining to cherish Gustav’s memory are his loving wife and soul mate of 63 years, Betty (nee Kehler), two sisters, Anne and Mary (Bill Toews), and one brother, Henry (Dorothy), his children Deborah and Brian Schwark, Theresa and Bill Dyck, Lucille and Bob Rempel, Conrad and Kristine Dueck, his grandchildren, Cory Dyck, Nathan and Sara Dyck with Jagger and Sebastian, Garreth and Giancarla Rempel with Jackson and Charlotte, Jenessa Robinson with Isaiah, Jahel, and Darnell, Dana and Jon Warkentin, Ava Dueck and Nikola Dueck.
