Jay Kuehnle

Date of Birth

October 17, 1957

Date of Death

October 13, 2023

Jay was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. Due to his adventurous parents, he was lucky to spend the majority of his life in Santa Barbara, with stints in Colorado and Montana.

He was intelligent, talented, and too sensitive for this world. Jay suffered from migraines and chronic pain from a back injury; he was unable to recover from addiction. In between Friday the 13th and the solar eclipse, Jay slipped away from accidental fentanyl poisoning. 

Both his parents, Bernadine and Eugene Kuehnle, died years ago. He is survived by his sister Dyna of Hot Springs, Montana.
