Walter James Kehler

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend, Walter James Kehler of Winnipeg, Manitoba on March 4, 2021.
Walter was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on October 28, 1937. He was adopted by Frank and Annie Kehler and raised in Morden, Manitoba.

Walter is survived by his wife Katharine Kehler (Bergmann), son Jason Kehler, daughter Ashley Kehler, granddaughter Liliana, sister Sylvia Moffat (Kehler) and nephews Mark (Christine) Moffat and Steven Moffat.

Walter grew up in Morden, Manitoba on his parents' farm. At the age of 16, he moved to Winnipeg to attend Mennonite Brethren Collegiate Institute for his high school education. Upon completing high school, Walter attended the University of Manitoba, originally perusing a career in architecture and even designing a home for his parents. He decided that architecture was not for him and instead pursued a career in law, which he successfully served in for over 50 years.

Walter was respected and appreciated by his colleagues and everyone he knew. His kindness and generosity were known by all who met him. Walter gave of himself till his final day, loving his family and helping them as well as his many friends.

Walter always put others ahead of himself. He served for many years on the board of directors for his church. He maintained business and personal relationships up until the end of his life. His generosity was always evident in his willingness to use his skills and expertise, often without seeking compensation from those he helped.

His most recent years were highlighted by the birth of his granddaughter Liliana. Although they could not spend time with each other in person due to geographic challenges, he delighted in seeing her over video chats, talking to her and playing with her when she would visit.

Walter will be greatly missed. His kindness, generosity and positivity were a light and an example to so many. We take comfort at this time knowing he is at home with his Lord.

Cremation has taken place. Due to current public health orders as well as in keeping with family wishes, no funeral will be held.

In lieu of flowers, please send a donation to a charity of your choice.
