A life well lived with many memories for loved ones and friends to remember such a kind, compassionate and good-humored man! Mr. Klemz is forever in my head and heart, his eyes with a playful light and his smile that radiated from within. Julie and Bill, your dad and mom are together again and I pray you can find some comfort and peace in that. He was strong and has left you both with incredible strength as well. Love knows no boundaries. He, and your mom, are with you always. Much love. Many happy memories- let those provide you relief from grief. God bless and the love never ends.

As member of Holy Cross Church, we enjoyed getting to know both Pat and Dale! They were great role model for us when we moved to Overland Park and joined Holy Cross! Pat was involved with Holy Cross preschool which enriched our children’s lives! Their son, Bill became a proud mattress salesmen at Mattress City, which started a year’s long friendship with mattress guru, Frank Dodd! We send sincere sympathy to Bill and Julie and their dear families! Your parents had such deep pride in you and your families’s lives!
