Dale Klapperich | Obituary

After a nearly four-year battle

with cancer, Dale Klapperich

passed away peacefully at age

67 at his home in Auburn with

family by his side.

Dale was born in Aberdeen

SD and grew up in Kent WA.

He attended Kentridge HS and

Green River College. He served

three years in US Army. He

spent his career in construction

equipment sales and retired

from regional sales after 25 years

with Stanley Hydraulic Tools.

Dale’s quick wit and sense of

humor brought happiness to many people.

He possessed a special quality which made

every customer, friend and family member

know how very special they were to him.

He lived his life fully, enjoying gardening,

handyman work, traveling, camping, music

and spending time with his beloved family.

Dale was preceded in death by parents

Laurence and Neva, siblings Joyce, Mary,

Larry and Vicki. He is survived by his wife

Debby, son Joshua, daughter in

law Jessica, granddaughter Sadie

and siblings Dolores, Joan, Ron,

Denise, Lowell and Keith, and

many nieces and nephews.

Dale was a fighter and he faced

his illness with strength, courage

and grace to the very end.

A graveside service will be held

for attendance by immediately

family at Hillcrest Burial Park

in Kent. A larger celebration of

Dale’s life will be planned when

the State’s Covid Guidelines

allow for large gatherings. In lieu

of flowers, donations may be made to the

following funds. Please note that your gift is

in memory of Dale Klapperich.
