1950 ~ 2022
We the family, sadly announce the sudden passing of Glen Randall Klapprat, at the age of 72 on March 14, 2022.
Dad was born the third child of Fred and Hertha Klapprat and lived nearly his entire life in Whitemouth, MB.
Dad grew up knowing the value of hard work and family. Dad met mom, Marion (nee Lorentz) and they married in 1971. Together they grew their own family. Daughters; Jennifer (Vince) Staerk, April (Jody) Pierrepont, and Shawna O’Brien. Grandchildren; Matthew (Kira), Cassidy (Tyler), Andrew (Ryane), Keara, Corbin and Devan. Great granddaughter Allyria.
He is also survived by his sister Bernice (Duane), brothers Bob (Carole) and Larry (Brenda), numerous extended family members and friends. He was preceded by his parents and in-laws, brother in-law and infant grandson Oswald.
As a young man dad pursued the plumbing trade, and proudly grew his own business for 53 years, while farming alongside his family.
Through life he enjoyed traveling and sharing his adventures with everyone, but the place he was happiest was at Cooks Falls. He loved to share stories about his family and all his interests with everyone who visited there.
Dad would say “There are no strangers in life; just friends you haven’t met yet”. Each of you hold a special place in our hearts for having been a part of dad’s life.
