My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Teddy Kluemper. I knew of him back in the high school days at Holy Cross. He was in the Junior Class when I was a Senior in 1962. I remember him being friends with Denny Blum, and Terry Spenlau. I met him again many years later at the 50 year reunion of the Class of 1962, which also included the Class of 1963. He was a good guy. May he rest in peace. Dennis Kelley Las Vegas,NV

Ted was to anyone he met, a person who was always friendly and made one feel extra special, even at the track when you placed your bet. To you, Mary Jo and his immediate family, we offer you our humble condolences, which in no way can lessen your loss. But one thing is certain, Ted ran his race of life and won, and is now in heaven with the Lord. Barb and Ron Mueller
