    To the Kehl family.

    So sorry to hear of Ken’s passing. Ken was a blessing to us with the friendship he extended to my mom Margaret Utigard with his short stay at Village at Smith Creek.

  • Susanne and Dennis Young says:

    To Ken’s family, We were next door neighbours to Ken and Helen on Grenfell. We will always remember your Dad for the cheerful spring in his step, especially on the perfect powder day as he was heading to the hill with his buddies back when the seasons pass was free for seniors. He had the best gig going and he knew it. As we now contemplate retirement plans, Dennis said last week….”I plan to be just like Neighbour Ken and ski as long as I can walk”. He was an inspiration to the whole neighbourhood. Our condolences on your loss. Susanne and Dennis Young

  • Lloyd Reynard says:

    I recall many a haircut from Mr. Kehl when I lived near the family on the Airport Road in Kenora and I also recall being chased off the airfield as well !
    Sincere condolences for your loss.
