Charlie Klestadt

Recommended Posts

I just received this from Margy Kassier:  Our dear Charlie K. has passed away.  Cruz Roja, Lakeside Charities Grant Program and the entire community will remember him every time something good happens at Lakeside.  Ted and I received the following message this morning from Ann Klestadt.

 "Last night [Oct. 17th] while Charlie and I slept holding hands, he slipped away from me forever. Please spread the word.  We'll have a memorial for him in December,  while Marty is here.
Love,   Ann”

How sad. He shall be missed by all who were lucky enough to know him. We have lost a wonderful person who did so much for this community.

We will miss you Charlie.

So sorry to learn of Charlie's passing, and very grateful that I just talked to Ann a few days ago and learned for the first time of his illness. They don't make them like Charlie any more!  Be at Peace, my friend.

I agree with all the comments. What a lovely, kind man. He was much in evidence for so many years, collecting for and supporting the Red Cross. I barely ever enter Super Lake without thinking of Charlie.

For the last several years, Charlie as been raising money for Lakeside Charities Grant Program and I don't know what we will do without him. With all the kind loving comments, I am going to add Ann's email so people can send her a note. Ann can be emailed at  motorboat1st (at) yahoo.com

Charlie, was the person the whole community knew. So much to say but, soon everybody will respond here.  My deepest condolence to the family.

What a incredible individual, he put others before his self, he changes the lives of so many at lakeside.

He helped with me advice 4 years ago at the Have Hammer Will Travel A.C. woodworking school, in starting the Bingolago on Tuesdays

His advice was down to earth and right on, made a difference.

My deep heart felt condolences to his family.

Charlie was always smiling and happy. He had the absolute best attitude about life. He told me he made the decision early in life to be happy everyday. Our entire village will miss you Charlie. ❤️

I am so sorry to hear this. I met him with my mom the first time I came for a visit 13 years ago. He was very charming. Every year he remembered who I was when we bumped into each other.

 

Condolences  to his wife Ann
