Robert J. Klages

  Mankato resident, Robert J. Klages, 83, died Saturday, January 5, 2013, at Hillcrest Health Care Center in Mankato.  Graveside services with military honors will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, (TODAY) January 9, 2013, at Calvary Cemetery in Mankato.  Woodland Hills Funeral Home is handling arrangements.

  Bob was born in Mankato, MN, and was a life-long resident.  He served his country in the Korean War and then went on to work for many years at AT&T. Bob loved fishing and hunting - his niece remembers him teaching her how to fish when she would visit in the summer.  Bob was lucky to have married his wife Delores when he retired from AT&T in 1981 and they had a good life, especially enjoying their time with their little dog Sassy.  After Delores's passing in 2010, Bob continued on with the help of friends, neighbors and family.

  He is survived by his son, Joseph Lamoreaux and his niece Katy Olson.  He was preceded in death by his wife, Delores; parents Robert and Elizabeth Klages; sister, Alice Olson; brother, Patrick Klages.
