OBITUARY

Anthony KLEIN

Passed away on June 11, 2020

It is with saddened hearts that the family of Anthony “Tony” Klein announces his passing on Thursday, June 11, 2020 at the age of 91 years.

Tony left home at an early age to start working in sawmills. He soon became a sawyer, eventually graduating to electric mills. Tony started his career sawing for Caroll Brothers west of Winfield. Tony and Barb lived there for 7 years where they enjoyed the company of many good friends as the employees all lived in the same camp. When they left Winfield to move to Obed they had 2 children.

The move to Obed saw Tony graduating from running a steam sawmill to an electric sawmill. Tony was a very skilled sawyer and had many job offers over the years. From Obed, the family, which now included 3 children, moved to Whitecourt for a short period of time.

In 1962, the decision was made to settle on their own land and a farm in the Chip Lake area was purchased. That same year the house was built which remained the family home for the next 43 years.

Their last child was born while living on the farm. Tony continued to work in central Alberta for various sawmills while also farming.

In 2005, at the age of 75, they decided to retire. The farm was sold and they moved to the Town of Onoway. A new home was built and Tony spent his time looking after the yard and gardening.

Tony loved his family and the years in Onoway were spent with family and friends. Tony passed away on June 11, 2020, after coping with severe health issues for several years.

As always, his wife was by his side.

Tony will be missed by all whose lives he touched.

Left to mourn, his wife of 71 years Barb; his children: Sherry Evans (Douglas), Randy Klein (Lorraine), Jill Klein (Randy), Leann Sagert (Byron); Tony had 5 granddaughters: Melanie, Stacey, Jennifer, Ashley, and Britney, and 11 great-grandchildren. All who held a special place in his heart. Tony was one of 8 children born to Joe and Martha Klein.

He was predeceased by 3 sisters and 2 brothers. Tony is survived by his sister Gladys Sundquist and brother George Klein (Dorothy).

Tony will be missed by all whose lives he touched.

Barb, Sherry, Randy, Jill and Leann,
I was very saddened to hear about Tony's passing. His kind and generous nature will always be remembered by so many. Everyone loved his wonderful sense of humor and infectious smile! He will be missed by so many.....
I know we haven't really kept in touch these past several years but I do ask Don about everyone in the family. I sent a message online before I found this notice so not sure if it got through.
My thoughts are with you at this time.
Hugs,
Julie
