On the evening of August 10, 1959, twenty-seven year old Henry P. Kehler went back to the jobsite he was working at Barkman Concrete, to pick up his jacket, which he had forgotten.

He walked along a forming wall, something he did all the time. However, this time the forming wall gave way and Henry fell head first, his body twisted in the air and he landed on his back; a 3-4 foot piece of rebar piercing through his back and protruding out through his abdomen.

As Henry lay on the ground, the rebar through his body, he called out to God for help and relief. God granted his prayer, and he says the pain was much more bearable from that point on.

In 1959, there was no Medicare, so a group of construction workers put money together to help pay for Henry’s medical expenses of approximately $1,000. The amount accumulated until Ed H. Friesen presented him with $877.55. Continue reading “50 Years Ago…”
