Obituary for Robert A. Klimek

Robert A. Klimek, aka “UGLY” Bob, 72, Oconto, took his final breath on Friday, August 18, 2017 with family and loved ones by his side. Robert was born June 30, 1945 in Green Bay to the late Arthur and Crystal (Casperson) Klimek. “UGLY” Bob cherished the time he got to spend with his son, grandchildren, and friends. Bob loved his NASCAR, Green Bay Packers, riding his Norton and Harley-Davidson motorcycles when he was able, fishing, and going out on his boat. Bob was well known and loved by all who came into his life. The truth is what you got when you went to Bob with any question whether good or bad. For those of you who knew him, you know how stubborn and bull-headed he could be, and he was just that up to the very end. When the doctors gave him less than a week to live, he proved them wrong by lasting almost 7 weeks. He refused to go down without a fight. Bob will always be remembered as a great friend and the best father and grandfather that a person could ask for. He will be missed to no end and NEVER forgotten. R.I.P. “UGLY” Bob.

Robert is survived by a son, Bobby “BJ” Klimek (Amanda) , Oconto; girlfriend, Margaret Osmon; a sister, Janice DeVillers, Green Bay; two brothers, Richard (Pam) Klimek, Appleton; Ronald (Judy) Klimek, FL; uncle, David; aunt, Pat; grandchildren, Mariah Andrews, Shaina Klimek and Chase Klimek; and special long time friends, Wolfie and Schnooky Shavlik. He was preceded in death by an infant brother.

The family will receive relatives and friends at the Gallagher Funeral Home, Oconto, from 1 to 4 PM Saturday, September 2, 2017. Memorial services will be conducted 4 PM Saturday at the funeral home with Deacon Walter Kaszynski officiating. Online condolences may be expressed at www.gallagherfuneralhome.net.

In lieu of flowers a memorial fund is being established.

A special thanks goes out to the staff at Unity Hospice, Margaret, Amanda and Audra for their time, care and loving support for Bob when he needed it most. Thank you.
