Victor W. Klug, 94, of Random Lake was peacefully called to heaven with his daughters by his side on Saturday, May 26, 2012. Victor was born on August 17, 1917, to the late John and Louisa (Staege) Klug of the Town of Scott. He grew up on the family homestead along with two sisters and two brothers.
On May 1, 1943, Victor married Mildred Hueppchen of Cascade. Together, with love and caring for each other, they were blessed with 62 years of marriage. The couple lived and retired on the family farm in the Town of Scott. Victor was a lifelong and faithful member of Immanuel Lutheran Church. Victor was a conservationist. With a love and respect for God's creation, he truly was a steward of the land and its wildlife.
Over the years, Victor and Mildred enjoyed fishing, playing cards and sharing conversation with extended family and wonderful friends here and in Canada. Victor's greatest joy was his family. He always took a keen interest in everyone's activities with an easy smile and an encouraging comment. By quiet example, he taught kindness and gratefulness.
Victor's memory will be cherished by two loving daughters, Karen (William) Turnquist of Green Bay and Iris Klug (Leo) Westermeijer of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and the Netherlands; an adoring granddaughter, Tera (Scott) Cox of Birmingham, Alabama and their children William, Timothy, and Andrew; two step-grandchildren, Peter and Swetlana Westermeijer; three great-grandsons, four step-great-grandchildren, a sister-in-law, Lorraine Doebert, other nieces, nephews, and extended family and dear friends.
Victor was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Mildred; his daughter, Sandra; an infant son, Keith; two sisters, Annette Hintz and Edna Stange; two brothers, Raymond and Marlin; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law.
