Klinger, Melvin "Mel"  
Melvin "Mel" R. Klinger, of Oshkosh, passed away on Saturday, August 22, 2015, at home peacefully with his wife at his side after a short battle with cancer. He was born in Oshkosh on September 30, 1943 the son of Melvin V. and Bernadine Klinger. He married JoAnn Schmidt on October 19, 1963. Mel was a member of Most Blessed Sacrament Church, the Corvette Club, Knickers and various golf leagues. He worked at Klinger Painting, Inc. in Oshkosh for 50+ years and became the president of the company. He was devoted to the company of which his grandfather had started. Mel lived and breathed golf, accomplishing two holes-in-one and scored record breaking rounds under par. Whenever he wasn't golfing 18 holes, he was found relaxing watching golf or sports. He was a die-hard sports fan, especially his love for the Green Bay Packers and the Wisconsin Badgers. Mel had a deep appreciation for corvettes and always made sure his corvette was washed and polished - and no fingerprints. Mel wintered in San Tan Valley, AZ and worked one morning a week at the golf course doing various jobs. His mode of transportation to his job was his red golf cart. Mel was a modest man with a big heart. He did not want to be recognized for his many good deeds. Mel is survived by his wife of 51 years, JoAnn Klinger; sons, Jay (Sue Jansen) Klinger, Tim (Jennifer) Klinger; grandchildren, Alexis, Adam, John and Jacob; sister, Joanne Bernadette, of Phoenix, AZ; two brothers-in-law, John (Kathy) Schmidt and Jim (Leslie) Schmidt. Mel was preceded in death by his parents, Melvin V. and Bernadine Klinger; baby brother, Melvin V.; in-laws, John and Emily (Jane) Schmidt. A great big thank you to the many friends who came to visit Mel during this difficult time. Mel's family would like to thank the Aurora Bay Care Cancer Center in Green Bay and Dr. Umang Gautum, for their excellent care and compassion. Funeral services for Mel will be Sunday, August 30, 2015, at Konrad-Behlman Funeral Home-Westside, 100 Lake Pointe Drive. Visitation will be from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm and the service to follow.
