I will miss sitting at the kitchen table and talking politics with Bob. If you look up the term “True American Patriot” Bob’s picture is right there. The biggest defender of freedom is watching over all of us now from heaven. R. I. P. Bob Klette.

Judy and Family
I can not tell you how sad I was to hear of Bob’s passing. I will forever cherish the wonderful memories of hanging out at the pool during the summers and the over the top Christmas Parties. Bob was always the life of the party and a true gentleman and friend. Love and hugs to all of you.

Bob was my hero in many ways. Always a smile and a kind word. I will miss him and his always wanting to help someone he thought needed it. God has a warrior in Heaven, rest in peace. Earth was a better place when you were here.

We mourn with you the loss of a dear friend and patriot. Our County, our Commonwealth—indeed our Nation—are all a better place because of Bob Klette. The cause of Liberty will miss this loyal and tireless warrior who always did whatever he could for the principles of freedom.
With our prayers and deepest condolences,
Rick and Patti Brueggemann
