David Wayne Kehr (DOC)
David Wayne Kehr (DOC) 65, of La Crosse, passed away peacefully on December 18th, 2020 at home.
David was born on 12/29/1954 in La Crosse, WI to Janice and Richard Kehr. He was born and raised on French Island and was a graduate of Logan High School in 1973. He married Mary Sharon in 1975 and together they had a son Aaron. From 1993 to 2000 he was married to Chris Devney. Later in life Doc would marry Dawn Holberg on May 8th, 2012.
Doc was a passionate and kind man, and to say he was loved by many would be an understatement. He enjoyed fishing up North with his good friend Clyde, putting puzzles together, and having a few Pabst with his many friends. Anyone who met Doc knew of his intense love to ride motorcycles, he was known to ride his motorcycle in the middle of winter just to say he could do it! He would spend weekends riding his beloved 1969 custom built Triumph in the backwoods camping with his friends and always had his good friend Hardtail riding by his side. He was an active member of the S.F.B. motorcycle club for 20 years and was an active president of the club in the late 90s. Doc dedicated 37 years as the Molten Iron King at Torrance Casting and finally retired in 2015. He will be remembered for his infectious laugh and kind spirit; he will be truly missed by so many.
David is survived by his mother Janice, his wife Dawn, his son Aaron (Grandchildren Lizzy and Kaiden), his brothers Jeff Kehr, Rick (Judy) Kehr, his sister Nancy (Steve) Becker, his step-children Joe Grant, Laura (Brian) Staswich, Chad Drinkwine, Joleen (Lerrie) Olson, Tony (Lindsay) Drinkwine, many step-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and many close friends.
David is preceded in death by his father Richard; brother Robert, and his brother Brian (Lisa) Kehr.
