Jake was born on April 11, 1928, in Grafton, the son of Jacob and Louise (nee Bartsch) Kleist. He married Marion Eickstedt on Nov. 6, 1948. They were blessed with two daughters, Sandra and Susan (Kurt) Kirner; and two grandsons, Quinn and Clayton.

Jake and Marion enjoyed gardening, tending to the yard, fishing and polka dancing. He was a "jack-of-all-trades" for his son-in-law and daughter and was a heart-warming grandpa to Quinn and Clayton. He was a special neighbor and good friend to many.

Jake was a friendly oil delivery man for 35 years in southern Ozaukee County. The family would like to thank the staff of Horizon Hospice, Dr. Goniu and Dr, Nand.

We will miss Jake, Dad and Grandpa!
