I had the honor of working for “GKB” in the Trouble Document Unit in DSFS for several years & he was a wonderful man! He cared for his people, was a strong leader and very professional. He also knew how to play and have fun. We shot skeet together with other friends in the Tinker Rod & Gun Club. He was an excellent shot & won many competitions. I always looked up to him and considered him a very good mentor in my early work years. Our thoughts & prayers are with Betty, Kendra & all the family! Rest In Peace “GKB!” Wendell & Sandy Kluge
