Klaus Werner Herbert Beckmann passed on March 19th 2014 in Greenwich, CT at the age of 71 after a long battle with heart illness. He was born to loving parents Ilse and Gerhard Beckmann on October 11th 1942 in Hamburg Germany, but spent most of his life in the United States where he proudly became a citizen. Klaus is survived by his beloved wife of 40 years, Bruni [Butschek] Beckmann, his son Oliver and wife Laura, and his most recent joy, his granddaughter Claire, who made the last 19 months very special for her Opa. Klaus was an executive in the ocean shipping business for many years before owning his own company, and spent the last 20 years in business with his wife as president and co-owner of a successful European fashion retailer based in Port Chester, NY. In addition to spending time with family and friends, he had a passion for the sea, beach vacations, books, cars, conservative media, card games and grilling steaks in the summer. Klaus touched everyone in his life, and will never be forgotten by his family, friends and co-workers who loved him very much. Visitation will be from 4 to 8pm on Monday March 24th at Castiglione Funeral Home at 134 Hamilton Ave, Greenwich, CT. A private funeral will be held on Tuesday
