Obituary

Richard Kahl - one last shlook

On Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020, Richard Kahl, loving husband and father of 2 children, passed away at age 88.

Richard was born on July 7, 1931 in Winnipeg Manitoba to David and Julianna Kahl and received his Engineering degree from the University of Manitoba in 1963. He practiced as a professional Engineer for 36 years throughout western Canada. On September 3rd, 1959 he married Heather Isabell Kahl (Leslie). They raised 2 sons Leslie and Graham.

Richard loved life. A personality too big for some.

He was a mathematician and an artist with a keen sense of design.
He over engineered everything he built - and he built a lot.

A proud Canadian who was always true to himself and always kind to others.
Known to many youngsters who would visit the house as self-proclaimed play-wrestler Herman the German. A great father and a great grandfather to his 4 grandchildren.

A driveway ball hockey goalie and local rink volunteer. His voice and volume would peel paint off the walls of many a hockey arena as he cheered at kid’s games across western Canada and beyond.

Known in the golf world as best player to never break 80.

He loved to party and dance and sing and travel with friends and family, none more than the Scott’s and Bandola’s of Calgary and the Shaw’s of Winnipeg.

He had no time for snobs or hierarchy.

To everyone who has been trying to rip him off over the last 88 years you can stop, you have failed.

And in the year of his passing it could not be more fitting that the Bombers have the Cup.

Richard was preceded in his death by his father, David; mother, Julianne; brother, David; two sisters, Emma and Elsie and his wife, Heather. He is survived by his son, Leslie and wife, Trina and their children, George and Ruby as well his son, Graham and wife, Jennifer and their children, Jaxson and Sadie.

Details of a Celebration of Life and one last shlook to come.
