Blaine Klingenberg Obituary

Our step dad remembers the first time they met, Blaine was locked out of the house so he put his foot through the glass and said "I gave it a karate kick." This was how Blaine based his life.

Blaine, 29,did not need you to accept him, you JUST did. If you know his name, you knew him... Plain and simple. From the time he finished school, until he left Bakersfield. We all knew him, whether it was from a party he hosted, or a BBQ he took over. Blaine MADE his presence known. "It takes a man to know one" Chicago gave us a man to be proud of...a man that made a city, in 1 year to respect and love.

Born in 1986 in Bakersfield, to Walter and Beverly. He became a man in his own rights, finally on the streets of Chicago with his better half Maja. We have all seen the star that was Blaine, and how bright it STILL shines. We miss you and love you Brother, Son and Friend.

Blaine is survived by his parents, Walter and Beverly, grandparents Lloyd and Margie, step-father Geoffrey, siblings Kendel, Corey, Dalton and Andrew. Nieces Amiya and Kalie and nephew Oliver. Multiple aunts and uncles, and a whole horde of cousins. And most importantly his best and brighter half Maja.

Services are a final memorial bike ride, July 17, 2016 (Sunday) starting at 10:30 am, at Beach Park. Followed by a BBQ in his name at his uncle Rob's house, 16140 Salmon Bay Ct.
