Excerpts from an Article in the Kansas City Star, Kansas City, MO:
"Kendall Kohr was only a Mayor, but the funeral Saturday was fit for a king. A crowd of 2500 spilled into the street. Bagpipes blared. An honor guard marched. Kohr, the legendary, "Mayor of Independence Avenue," would have loved it. Could have gotten a few cokes at the gathering."
"Kohr who lived in a house on the Avenue, had few relatives. His parents died in 1973. In his obituary, survivors included firefighters who worked at Station 23. He had his own chair there to watch television and he went there during storms when he was scared."
"When the hearse pulled away from the station for the trip to Arcadia, people waved, whistled and yelled goodbye as "the Mayor" took a final ride down Independence Avenue."
William Kohr (1898 - 1973)
Irma Kohr (1896 - 1973)
