Karlheinz ‘Karl’ Kliesch
Dec. 22, 1951 — July 31, 2016

Karlheinz “Karl” Kliesch, born Dec 22, 1951, found eternal peace July 31, 2016 at the age of 64 years.

Karl was the loving husband for 34 years to Lauren (nee Rheingans). He was the dearest brother of Gabriele (Joe) Eppers, Doris (Mike) Hohl and brother-in-law to Gary Rheingans (Sandi). He also is survived by nieces, nephews, and many other relatives and friends.

Karl was born in Gottingen, Germany, to Alfred and Ida Kliesch. He graduated from Waukesha High School and served in the U.S. Army with the 82nd Airborne Division. After the Army, he worked with his father at Al Kliesch Custom Homes and for Waste Management for 30 years. Karl spent his spare time working on his Jeep and off-roading. One of his proudest moments was when he became a U.S. citizen.

Family would like to thank the staff at Waukesha Memorial Hospital ICU and at AngelsGrace Hospice for their loving care.

In lieu of flowers, memorial to the family would be appreciated. Memorial gathering will be held at a later date.
