Wow, where to begin! 25 years ago our paths crossed and we went from there....over the years we became travel buddies from when you came to Cancun with me for the first time and we went back about a dozen times since. Florida was a great memory for vacation as well...Amazing times if we were on vacation or just sitting in your livingroom and I was helping with your laptop. You are a good soul and left us too early my friend, until the next time we meet, CHEERS!

You'll be missed cousin. I'll always enjoy your infectious laugh and big heart. Though you were far away you were always in our thoughts. You will forever be in our hearts and never forgotten. Love you.

Remembering the few days vacationing with you and your Mom in Cancun, enjoying the beautiful beach a couple of years ago.
Little did we know that it would be the last time we would see you.

So sad that you had to leave us so soon.

After being busy taking care of your beloved Mom for some time, you now deserved to live a great life, which was cut short.

Rest in Peace, dear nephew Claus.

You will never be forgotten.
Uncle Victor & Aunt Ursula

Claus, God bless you as you go on your way... you were a sweet soul who made me laugh. You are part of us, and I pray you find peace, laughter, healing and joy in the light. You are thought of with affection, in my heart, and in my Daughters as well.
With respect and love,
Tina & Katy

Claus....No words can truly express how much you'll be missed by all of us in dispatch. Just the other day someone had asked a question about CAD and all I could say was 'Claus would know that!' Not only were you so knowledgeable but you were a very thoughtful person. You always had my back and was always so generous. I remember you making bomb ass coffee for us using your good coffee you brought from home lol. Everyone would wait for you to make yours because it tasted better lol. I don't know if you realize it but I kept my bracelet you gave us girls from your trips to Mexico on my keychain because it meant so much that you thought of us while you were on vacation. You sharing your formula for yelding the best results out of your 401k to everyone and your willingness to share your timeshare with others. So many memories of your kind spirit. I'll always remember that and your thoughtfulness. Thank you for everything. I'm gonna miss you but I know you're in a better place now. Gone but never forgotten. Rest easy Claus.

Claus Y55,

I know you're in a much better place now, but I wanted to take this time to thank you for always being an amazing person to me. All the conversations we had will forever be kept in my heart and cherished. Thank you for showing me so much in dispatch. You truly left a huge impact on a lot of the drivers and dispatchers you've talked to over the years, because they were also sad when the news was given to them.

May you rest in paradise now, and continue to be that amazing person.

A man who's laugh can rival Santa Claus himself, I was indeed saddened to hear you've departed from this thing called life. I remember listening to you and your tales of travel. My favorite is when you got a ticket in Italy I believe wondering should you pay it....six years later, lol.

I hope you've found the peace you've been wanting. Dispatch won't be the same without you. We'll miss ya much. From your fellow "Yankee"......Dom

Claus,

It was always good talking to you about random movie scenes and basketball. I am glad I got to know you and talk about our German background and Bay Area memories. Thank you for always chiming in when I needed help.
