A lover of horses and the outdoors, he enjoyed spending his free time out in pastures and fields. Born in Bismarck as the seventh of eleven children, he was raised in rural Grant County and graduated from St. Gertrude's High School. As a young man, he proudly served his country in the Armed Forces and later his community as a USPS mail carrier. Later in life, he worked for the US Air Force before retiring and splitting his time between North and South Dakotas. His remains will be interred at the Veterans Cemetery with full honors.

He is survived by his daughter, Emma Bearry, his sons, Christopher Kahl and David Kahl, his grandchildren, Taeler Vetter, Talia Murphy, and Kainoa Hoopii, his companion, Paula Paul, his siblings, Jago, Michael, Arthur, Deborah, Steven, Stanley, Brenda, Lorin, and Karla, and many in-laws, nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his son, Brian "Punky" Kahl, his brother, Terrance Kahl, and his parents, Helen and Zack Kahl.
