GMNP remembers Randy Kehr

We are saddened to report that Randy Kehr, executive director of the Albert Lea-Freeborn County Chamber of Commerce and a founding board member of the GMNP, passed away on Nov. 23 after a battle with cancer. He was 69 years old.

Randy served as executive director of the Albert Lea-Freeborn County Chamber of Commerce for the past 10 years. He was a strong supporter of the GMNP and had been an active member of our board of directors since the organization was created in 2014. Throughout his years in service, Randy was a strong champion and tireless advocate for the Albert Lea community, numerous organizations in addition to the GMNP, and the entire state of Minnesota.

Our thoughts are with Randy’s family and friends; he will be greatly missed. You can read Randy’s full obituary here. The Albert Lea Tribune also published a story about his life in public service.
