Kuehl, Ivan (1947 – 1968)

(Something is wrong with the way this obit was published. It does not say his death date, but it shows two dates for his funeral, one on Jan. 25th, 1968 and the other on Feb. 19th, 1968. I since this is the Feb. 29th edition, I assume the Feb. 19th date is the correct one for his funeral.)
