Michael Kahn Ph.D. Obituary
Michael Kahn, Ph.D Clinical Psychologist, Professor of Psychology, Author, WWII Veteran, Bomber Pilot. Founding board member of the Christopher Reynolds Foundation, Board President for 40 years. Michael died peacefully at home on July 9th. Truth told with compassion and a deep belief in the path of loving kindness, are the goals he woke up with each morning and went to bed with each night. As a young 18 year old man, he believed in the just causes of World War II and left Harvard as an undergraduate and joined the Army Air Corp. For the rest of his civilian life, Michael worked tirelessly as Board President of The Christopher Reynolds Foundation, and as a Citizen of the US for Non-Violence and Social Justice. Michael never again saw a war he believed was motivated by a call of justice or freedom. He is survived by his wife, friend and companion of 30 years, Virginia, by two younger siblings whom he loved dearly, John Tuteur of Napa, and Maggie Tuteur of Graton, sister-in-law, Vee Tuteur, niece Jessica Tuteur-Davenport, nephew-in-law David Davenport. Jessica and David's children, Lily and Marco Tuteur-Davenport. Each of these five family members, he always kept in his heart. Michael is also survived by Brant Cortright, friend of 45 years, who in the heart of Michael was in truth, son and family. Brant's two sons, Devon Cortright and Kai Cortright, Michael's godsons who he loved and was proud of beyond measure. Their mother, Jennifer Cortright, who Michael lovingly referred to as his "godsister". His goddaughter, Izabela Trepes, who he thought of with great love and joy and was sure would follow in his footsteps to Harvard, by three grandchildren, Ryan Collins, Maci Collins and Logan Collins, each visit would fill him with so much love and delight that when they left, his first question was always "when are they coming back?". He is also survived by the numerous people whose hearts he has touched and inspired during his time here. The list is far too long to name. We will all miss and celebrate him the rest of our lives. As Michael would say, "Thank you everyone. Namaste." There will be a Memorial for Michael on September 20, 2014 at 3:00pm at San Francisco Theological Seminary, 105 Seminary Rd., San Anselmo, CA 94960, Montgomery Chapel. Please, no flowers or donations are necessary.
