      Lovely post Diana.This is Billy Holley, Kurt’s longtime friend and roommate at the the time of his passing. I never heard him mention being on this movie. He wasn’t listed on the IMDB credits and I’d love to see him get credit for it.

    I am so saddened by the loss of Kurt. He became an amazing link in part of my son’s missing puzzle pieces. Having him as an aide and working around my son, brought out such life in Isaac. I pretty sure he may have been Isaacs favorite person above even me. We will honor him at Isaacs baseball game and think of him always. My thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.

    candle 8I’m in shock! Kurt was my 7th grade teacher at Ladue- I organized a walk out he asked me to call off when I learned of his departure. He was THE teacher for me… the one I have always remembered and always will. His signature move was quoting a student or celebrity/author/politician and asking us to journal on it. The lesson was everyone matters!

    candle 7I met Kurt early in HS at FHHS. We attended college together both going into education ST SMSU and Kurt was a shining star in the classroom and in life. In 1981 he started saying we are like this and cross his fingers we would both say like this for over 35 years even if we did not see each other for many, many years. His last FB to me said “Like this’. He had the best ground hog day celebrations, he enjoyed life and was an all around great guy. He loved his family dearly and was a special guy. Thoughts and prayers to his family cherish the many happy memories you have and that he gave to so many. Kurt..”Like This” You will be missed my friend.

    candle 5The first time I met Kurt was at Cinema 4 theater in St. Charles. I was 16 and Curt was 21 which I thought odd that someone 21 would be an usher at the movie theater. But I also thought it was kind of cool. Kurt and I were not really similar in personality or looks as I had long hippie hair still trying to deny the 80s and Kurt was fully embracing them. One night when I was celebrating an anniversary with my girlfriend I begged and pleaded Kurt to buy us a bottle of wine since he was of age. He be begrudgingly went in and bought us a bottle of grape coffee wine. It was the worst tasting wine ever. And I chuckled.

    I taught Kurt how to play 2112 by Rush on guitar. Our musical styles were nothing alike. That being said “Don’t look at me I might get a Boner” is probably one of the greatest songs ever written by an amateur. And Kurt wrote it. Long live the Barking spiders and God Bless Kurt Keller.

    Kurt was our neighbor and schoolmate to our son Scott. He was a thoughtful person. He brought me home when I was involved in an accident. He saw it was me and asked if I wanted him to bring me home as my car was towed away. We have happy & great memories of him playing in the neighborhood with our sons, Scott & Keith. So sorry to hear of his passing. Our condolences to his mother & father, our neighbors still. Leona & John A.

    candle 7I had the amazing good fortune to meet Kurt in a class we shared together at SMS in the 80s.

One of the kindest and most good-hearted people I’ve ever met. God Bless.

    candle 8Kurt was a great friend, one of my best at Francis Howell and SEMO. He was the Best Man in my wedding in 1988. Sadly, that may have been the last time we were together. Kurt made others comfortable in his presence, whether he just met you or knew you for a long time. He will be greatly missed. I will certainly be praying for his family and friends.

    candle 6I worked with Kurt briefly, but his impact was lasting. He always made a point to bring a smile to your face no matter what kind of day he was having. He spoke highly of his children and loved telling stories about them growing up.

    candle 7To Kurts parents, you raised an unbelievable child, so caring and compassionate, loving and always there when you needed.
    To his children, your father was special to many, but not nearly as special as you were to him. He loved you so very much.

    I am going to miss those big infectious laughs, that smile and always being greeted with a hug. We are better for knowing him and the world is a little colder tonight without him.
    God Bless you Kurt, I can’t wait to see you again.

    candle 8Kurt – such a character and personality that could not be contained. You were a classmate and friend at Riverview, then buds at Howell. I’m shedding tears but also smiling as I recall those days. We definitely were not part of the “cool” kids. We took great pride in not conforming. You wanted to be “old school” on the baseball team – George Hendrick pants and black spikes all the way! It seems so simple and unimportant now but at that time and the grief we received… I was amazed at your resilience. Never embarrassed to share your music, I could only wish to be as bold and confident. You were a rock for me during those days. Made tough times bearable just by laughing at what was happening – what a smile, what a laugh. Sending prayers for your parents, your kids, Roger and family. Rest.

    candle 7Kurt was a friend who even after not seeing him for several years, made it seem as if you just talked yesterday.

    candle 7Kurt – Thank you for all of the fun times we shared at Westport Cine’ (all those years ago). Thank you for the song you wrote for me. Thank you for the recording of you singing that song (and a bunch of others) – you have been an Artist on my iPod for years. Thank you for all of the Jerry Lewis imitations. Thank you for the Monkees logo carved out of wood (I still have it). Thank you for the many discussions on music. Thank you for sharing your great smile and that incredible laugh (and everyone who met you knows what laugh I am referring to). Thank you for all of the advice on life – you were always wise beyond your years. Thank you for the many times we laughed about nothing in particular – and couldn’t stop laughing. Most of all, thank you for coming into my life and giving me some of the happiest memories – memories of a simpler time. Memories I will always cherish. I haven’t seen you in a million years but I remember our friendship like it was yesterday. That’s the effect you had on my life. I think a quote from Dr. Seuss sums it up: “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened”. I won’t….and I will.

    Kurt was always fun to be around. He had lots of “stuff” in his head, from music to sports to just about anything someone wanted to talk about. He enjoyed being with his children and cared for them deeply. He was an optomist who was continually chasing a dream.
    He will be missed…..

    Kurt was a great friend to the McLaughlin family. He wrote funny songs, loved his family and baseball and suggested we do our 10-mile runs during the hottest part of the day. In December 1996, I talked Kurt into going to Memphis where I was running a marathon. “Just come with me, Kurt,” I told him. At the last minute, he signed up for a rainy, cold 26.2-mile race just to keep me company. He did not have a lot of training under his belt, but still ran the marathon in 3 hours and 40 minutes. That was a damn good time and tells you all you need to know about Kurt Keller. Thanks Kurt.

    candle 8Kurt loved music, baseball and laughter. Who else names his band after the color of the St Louis Cardinals uniforms? It was brilliant!
    When we were putting together our first Play It Forward benefit, Kurt and Victory Blue were the first band to say yes, we were so very grateful for the donation of his time for our cause. We will never forget Kurt’s Mardi Gras band introductions and various improptu visits to the stage, he was always welcome as the entire band knew we would be in stitches, wish we had all of them recorded as they were priceless and never the same thing twice. There was no better emcee or stage crasher than Kurt.
    Kurt’s song lyrics were as eclectic as he was and his art truly reflected the artist, so lyrically creative.

    Kurt was creative, kind, funny, and charitable. We are going to miss you, rest well brother.

    So, so sorry to hear of the loss. Kurt and Billy were the only friends I needed at dear old SMSU back in the late ’80s. He had such a magnetic personality and so many friends, but he always made sure I was included. That meant a lot. I was so happy we reconnected on social media some years back and I got to live vicariously through his adventures. He was truly one of a kind, and my deepest sympathies to the many, many people who loved him.

    I knew Kurt both in Dellwood and Kirkwood. What an extremely nice, personable guy! Quick story- I saw Kurt before a concert at Blueberry Hill talking to someone who I assumed was his friend. I told his “friend” that when we’d play pickup football as kids, we’d all be wearing t-shirts and jeans and Kurt would have his Fran Tarkenton Minnesota Vikings uniform on, including helmet. Kurt came up to me later and told me the “friend” he was talking too was Peter Buck from the great band, REM. Peter Buck was part of the band playing that night called “The Baseball Project.” He seemed to enjoy talking to Kurt.

    candle 6I didn’t know Mr. Keller. My son was a student of his so many years ago,(20?) at Ladue. My son was not a great student, but a wonderful human being. Mr Keller, who had asked me to call him Kurt numerous times, was the sweetest, most encouraging person to my son. He wrote him letters telling him to keep going! To find his passion and go for it.
    We moved to Nevada for a short time, and we had a going away party. Mr. Keller attended. He was such a great guy from what I could see, and I felt so grateful for his encouragement to my son…who went on to become a teacher because of people like Kurt Keller.
    My son just called me to tell me this news. We are both very saddened for all of you he left behind. I am sure he must have been a goof ball that made people laugh and feel loved. He really seemed to grab life with both hands and have a blast!
    I am so very sorry for your pain and loss. I know you will miss him every day.

    Kurt was kind, funny, and caring. He was a supportive parent and was a great help on field trips and at school events. My students loved when he substitute taught!

    I will also remember how Kurt encouraged me and ran alongside me in my first 5K. We had a great time talking amid my huffing and puffing!

    I will also remember Kurt participating in our group Halloween event. He was a fun addition!

    Rest In Peace, Kurt.

    candle 3It’s been almost 3 weeks since I lost my wonderful nephew, Kurt, and I still can’t accept the fact that he is gone. Our family gatherings will never be the same and that’s when the reality of losing him will hit the hardest. He was always the fun one, the one who kept the conversation going. He and Paul could talk for hours about baseball, music, and the many other interests they shared. His patience with John was amazing and never ending. I look at pictures of Kurt and Ruby and Kurt and Jacob and you can see how much he loved them. He was so very proud of all his children and loved them dearly. Kurt was one of a kind and I wish everyone could live their lives to the fullest as he did. He could always find the good in people and believed in having a good time! After my husband passed away, I put the following saying on my refrigerator to remind me everyday:

    “We go on because that’s what we do. We find a way, we figure it out, we go on” And we will.

    candle 7I had no idea my former Ladue middle school teacher had passed away. He was soooo amazingly awesome.

    I remember the last chat I had with him on 12/29/2016 1:56AM, it was just so great. It was always great talking with him. the very last thing he ever said to me before departing this life was, “Love + peace always, classy lady”.

    Love + peace always, Mr. Keller.

    Rest in Peace, Mr. Keller. <3 💔😭😢
