In going through my old recommendation letters, I found the one from Dan Kahler. There could be no higher form of praise than a letter written by him, dated Sept. 10, 1992. Even though it is over 20 years old, i'll take it to my interview tomorrow. Wish me luck Dan!

At 77 years, I recently completed an autobiography,"Save Them All",(Amazon). I expressed how I felt about my two lifetime favorite coaches:Dan Kahler and Merle Hinton, both from A.C. Nothing has changed--I think of them every day.

Dr. K would not approve of my misspelling of Vaya Con Dios from a writer/journalism major. To my most beloved mentor, please forgive my earlier post whereby I used 'Via' versus 'Vaya' twice. I remember how forgiving and compassionate you were to us all...I also know you would want me to get this right. THANK YOU profoundly for the truly unique impact you had in my life and literally thousands of others. None better, "greatest of all time." Troy Comfort (Class of 1980)

To the finest role model I can ever imagine in our world. As an Oak Park alumni since 1980, I still recall to this day his impact on my life. He would sign special awards and mementos "Via Con Dios." Dr. Kahler, "via con dios"!

I only know Dan Kahler as "Coach". I grew up in Ark City, Kansas, and followed him by observing his handling of basketball players. Ultimately, I became a basketball coach for 40+ years. Much of what I taught came directly from this wonderful man. We shared many conversations throughout the years, in person and by telephone--he always had time for me.
My dream was to play for him, but when I graduated from H.S. in 1959,he unexpectedly resigned to become the ACHS principal--broke my heart.
We stayed in touch (I was in Texas)thereafter. He was my hero. I shall always think of him, miss him, and love him.

Dear Becky and all Family,
I was sad to hear of your Dad's death. May I offer you my sincere condolences. You and your family were very dear to me. I had a brief opportunity to reconnect with him about 15 or so years ago, when I was working on my doctoral dissertation through the University of MO- Columbia. At the time, I was serving on the Mo. Association of Secondary School Principals (MASSP), and Bob Howe suggested I call your dad for some advice about my dissertation. Of course, I did. It was a joy to talk to him and his advice was stellar - as usual. He was a true man of Mission and I was blessed to have had his influence in my life. Dear Becky - may you always be comforted and blessed.
Love,

Dr. Kahler was a unique individual. I believe he must have been liked and appreciated by everyone. He was always so supportive of any student and of any student activity.

My mother, Violet Amos, worked with Dr. Kahler's wife at the Maple Woods College bookstore. Mrs. Kahler's name was Violet also, but my mother used her nickname of her youth, Penny, to keep confusion to a minimum. Because of this, I shared a unique comradery with Dr. Kahler that I will always think about with fond memories.

Dr. K was a great man on so many levels. No matter who you were, he made you feel like you were the only person in the room. He was such a genuine gentleman, and a great role model. I will always cherish his friendship, and forever treasure the profound impact he had on my life.

DK - The Silver Fox- was my principal at Northtown during my 3rd year of teaching. I credit him for helping me understand and value the teaching position, as well as encouraging me to go into administration some day. My fondest memory of DK is when he held an all school assembly to honor our Special Olympians. What an honor to work for him.

Dr. Kahler certainly helped us "as Northmen bring you honor and praise the blue on blue". I remember him telling of the Navy sailor who saved his life and helped guide his decision to help kids. He could have been so much more in another field of work but was so much more in what he did for us. Always positive in his announcements in the mornings. Class of 70.

Dr. Kahler was a force at Oak Park and I will always remember the incredible influence he had in my life. He showed us the right way to conduct your life and made lifetime learning a goal for us all. He also made sure students knew that regardless of their home life or family situation, we had someone in our corner that was willing to listen and help. Thank you for all that you taught me!!!

DK was such an amazing person. I had great respect for him during my time at Oak Park. He always knew our names. If he saw you in the hallway, he would sometimes ask if we had a pen/pencil and a piece of paper. If we didn't, he would give you his so that we could always be prepared. To this day I still make sure I have a pen/pencil and a piece of paper in my purse! Thank you so much DK for all the little lessons you taught us and for being our friend. You will be truly missed by us all.

He was such an inspiration to students of all classes. His guidance and leadership made us the men and women we've become. I still remember hearing his solemn voice during the morning announcement when he informed us the first Oak Park graduate had been killed in the Vietnam War. What a somber day; and as he walked the halls as usual that day, he comforted the students. May he rest in peace. Beverly Williams Cremer class of 1970.

I remember DK as my Principal my senior year at Winnetonka-class of 1991. He knew his students by name because he didn't hide in an office. I remember the day of graduation he gave me some words of wisdom as I was leaving the auditorium. He was bigger than life with a very good heart and warm presence. Rest in peace Oh Captain, my Captain!

My mind IS a pearl!

The world lost a great man and the best Principal a kid could ever had!! He was my parents principal at Oak Park in the class of 1973 One aunt in 1969,the other in 1978,my uncle in 1975 and he was mine at North Kansas City class of 1996! He treated every kid as his own!! If you ever had a problem he would stop with what ever he was doing and take a walk with you and try to help you out!! I'm sure my class was not the only one to receive a special note hidden behind their Diploma NKCHS class of 1996!! Love you and Miss you DK!!!

Dr Dan wasn't just my principal at OP, he was a mentor, inspiration and respected friend. Years later he was my two oldest principal at Winnetonka. He spoke at numerous class functions for all three of my children at Antioch pointing out prior students and telling our children old high school stories. Know he will be missed as much as he was loved and respected. Bernie Beck class of 75

Dan Kahler was such a great person... In and out of the office all the time... NOT once did I EVER hear him raise his voice... It was ALWAYS a pep talk NOT a butt chewing no matter what you did.. I remember at '91 TONKA graduation he gave US a gift that NO other class could have for 100 years... A COIN set was given to Terry Short for safe keepings for our 60th class reunion.. What makes it so special... Add the coin set up... It makes 91 cents... For the CLASS OF 91. Rip DK...

Dr. Kahler was a great man and I am a better person for having known him. My senior year of high school I was a teacher assistant for him for one hour each day. We had many good conversations. He was so smart and fascinating to talk to. He was a total "people person" and even though I haven't seen him in many years, he had a tremendous impact on my life.

My deepest sympathy to his family, but please know how much he was loved by so many people.

The passage of years has not diminished the memories of the person and friend Dr. Kahler was to so many. Years after I graduated and when I ran into him he would share a memory of my high school years. His pride in the accomplishments of Oak Park graduates was very apparent. Whatever NKC School district school he lead was better for it because of him. I am in Lawrence now and many in Kansas City North are not aware of his tenure here but I run into many oldsters that have the same fond memories we have. Thank you Dr. K for being an inspiration to thousands. Class of 1970

We called him Dr Dan, but it was with love and respect. We respected him, because he respected us. He made us want to learn, to improve our lives. He let us know that we could do anything that we were willing to work for. He was an inspiration to so many people. Even though I haven't seen him in more than 40 years, I have thought of him, and spoken of him, often. He was a great influence in my life, only surpassed by my parents. He will be missed.

Dr. Kahler's many accomplishments set a wonderful example to continue to strive for excellence and service to others. A devoted and loving husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather. He will be sorely missed not only by family but also all those who knew him professionally and personally. Under God's Kingdom by means of Jesus we have the hope of seeing him again during the resurrection (Jo 5:28). - Andrew
December 3, 2015
I have many fond memories of Dr. Kahler. My father was assistant principal at Oak Park with Dan and we went many places together. He would always asked my sibling and I trivia questions and never failed to give us a quarter when we answered correctly. He loved learning and knowledge and shared that love with us. He will be greatly missed by many.

I did not know DK well, but his kindness and professionalism left a lifelong impression on me. I remember, as if it were yesterday, walking down the hallway between classes at Oak Park High School. As I passed near his office, he came along side me, put his arm around my shoulder and said, "Mark, how are things going and is there anything I can do for you?" Classic DK, always putting others first! That one little act of kindness, amongst a lifetime of kindness, has stuck with me for nearly forty years. Even though a great deal of time has elapsed, I feel his loss today. The world seems a bit less bright at his passing. I extend my deepest sympathies to his family and countless friends. Godspeed, DK.

Well Dan you left a mark on my life like no one else. You always cared for me, my wife, and son. I remember so many times we spent together and the stories you shared with me. I remember how we celebrated your birthday many times and you always acted like it was the happiest of times (even though we only did this after Violet passed.) You taught me so very much about teaching, love of learning and caring for others. We enjoyed all the times we spent with you and Violet. I shared your sad times when Violet was gone and maybe people haven't yet caught something--but your service in Kansas City is 2/6/16 with your birthday being 2/6/26 thus your 90th birthday and Violet's service was also on her birthday 7/25/05 and she would have been 77 on the day of her service. You both shared a bound with each other that few couples share. You and Violet were one of the most beautiful couples I have ever known. You left your mark on me and always showed me praise and honor. You taught me how to build on the positive of a student and to always show respect--for love always wins. You will be missed Dan. Thank you for letting us share in your inner circle for so many years--you were a treat to know. With robust love, Tim & Lorie.

Dr. Kahler spoke to my high school, Grenola, Kamsas sports banquet in 1957. I went to Arkansas City Jr. College in 1958 and he was there teaching English and coaching the basketball team. When I got a teaching job in North Kansas City school district in 1962 and in 1955 OaK Park High School was built and Dr. Kahler was the principal. He was always ready to try new things. He was an excellent speaker that the students liked. It hard to think about Oak Park with thinking for Dr. Dan Kahler. Delbert Lampson

Dr Kahler WAS Oak Park High School. We OPHS alumni probably didn't realize at the time how great a man and mentor he was and how fortunate we were to have him as a principal and a leader. I was always amazed at his ability to remember former students as if he had just seen them in the hall between classes even though ( at least in my case ) it had been 30 plus years. When I was inducted into the OPHS Hall of Fame in 2013, I was sorry that Dr Kahler was not there but I knew my being selected to represent the Class of "69 and OPHS was certainly a tribute to him. He's gone but will never be forgotten. Mike Dalzell OPHS '69 US Navy (retired)

He always found innovative ideas to bring

He influenced many generations of students
that became leaders and contributing citizens.

Dr. K, you were the second most influential man in my life, right behind my own father. You will be truly missed. Kathy Bailey Trickey, Class of 1970
December 3, 2015
To Becci and Family,
Your Dad was a huge influence in my life, not only at Oak Park, but especially in his days of broadcasting KU football games during my playing career there in the early '70's.
His way of encouraging us all to be better than we thought we were, always stuck with me.
His favorite story was when I was a sophomore at KU, I got ejected from a game at the Univ of Minnesota. My offensive line coach had chewed me out on the field, in the locker room, and as he was coming down the aisle of the plane on our flight home, he chewed me out again, as I sat with your Dad and Jerry Evans. Every time I saw Dr. Kahler years after, he would always bring that up, and we would have a good laugh.
I loved your Dad, as we all did, and will never forget his influence on my life.

Dk. Aka the silver fox. I will miss you but you left a mark on my life as well as many other you touch at winnetonka hs 90-91 school year. You always interacted with us thru out our days there. You motivated and inspired us to strive for more. My senior year i was always eager to come to school and learn more. We got thru the gulf war that year. We got our first special satilite station. WWER. It kept us in tune with activities, and more. We didnt even have google or social media yet but it was a time of great discovery. We had face to face interactions. It was the best year of my life. Back when whitney houston died she asked him if she was good enough. I wonder if that questiion ever crossed your mind. Was a good enough my 89 yrs here on earth. My answer is no. You were GREAT! We will always cherish the memories we had with you and you will never be forgotten. I bet if you listen real close we can still here your echo in the halls at tonka. WINNETONKA. WHERE. EXCELLENCE. REIGNS. (WWER). Goodbye my friend and may god give you wings to fly above the heavens and strive for more!! In memory of Dr. Dan Kahler. Rip......

DK was magical. He would walk around the school, ask kids a question of the day and give out candy to those who came up to him with an answer. The kids would run down the hallway to him. He would be in the cafeteria, talk to kids about their love life and really listen.

I was so lucky to know him as a colleague and friend for the last 20 years. I'm glad he will now be with Violet, the love of his life.
