J. Kleinhans 59|
J. Kleinhans 59, of Pearson, formerly of West Bend, was quietly called to
rest on Feb. 18, 2014.
Born on June 22, 1954, to Donald and Jane Kleinhans, he graduated from De
Pere High School in De Pere, then went on to the tool-and-die trade
followed by a move to the quality assurance position.
Tom had a great love for the northern woods where it was calm and peaceful
for him, where he enjoyed the many Harley-Davidson rides with his friends
and family throughout the years along with watching NASCAR and the Packers
on the weekends. He was well known to have an upbeat attitude and lived
the simple life.
Tom leaves behind many of who cared and loved him including special
brother John Kleinhans of Arizona and brother Scott Kleinhans (Jessica) of
Neshkoro; sisters Mary Theis of Michigan and Sue
(Edward) Mattox of West Bend; nephews Travis Kleinhans, Legend and Cameron
Schoep; along with nieces Jeanette Kleinhans and Andrea.
Tom’s parents Donald and Jane Kleinhans, aunts, uncles and grandparents
preceded him in death.
“We also will never forget the huge kindness of Tom’s ‘Three
Amigos’ who gave him much laughter and beautiful memories. You guys know
who you are.”
There will be a private memorial service at a later date.
Tom, always remember: Life is not a journey to the grave with the
intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but
rather to skid in broadside thoroughly used up, totally worn out and
loudly proclaiming “Wow, what a ride!”
“Tom you gave all of us great memories, we will never forget you. RIP
