Edward Klein

Peacefully and shortly following Prayers of Commendation, on November 14, 2019, Edward Klein (Ed) passed away at the age of 97, while comforted by his daughter Patti Petersen-Klein (Rick). 

Ed, son of John and Emilia (Buch) Klein, is predeceased by his wife of 67 years, Wilhelmina, nee Ruppenthal (2013), sisters Margaret, Eva, Gertrude, and Evelyn; and brothers John, Jacob, and Albert.

Left to cherish his memory are his brother Raymond of Ontario; of Wisconsin-his son Bryan (Sue Hudson), grandchildren Christopher (Lisa) and Nicole, and great-grandchildren Brayden and Adrianna; and other loved ones- Amber, Andrew, Carol, Julie, Sam, Chappy II, Adler, nieces, nephews, and in-laws.  

Ed was a WWII Veteran of the Royal Canadian Airforce; a loving husband and father; and a dear friend to all those who came to know him in Canada, California, Milwaukee, Sun City West, and Topeka.  During his 35-year retirement, he enjoyed golfing, gardening, and serving his Church Homes.  He was a founding member of Peace Lutheran Church (Peoria, AZ) and its first Council President.
