Robert “Bob” John Klehr was born on August 14, 1929 in Credit River Township, Minnesota to parents Alois and Hildegard (Theis) Klehr.

Bob worked on the family farm until age 30. Bob then continued work at Owens Illinois in Shakopee for 10 years and finished his last 18 years of work at Knox Lumber. Bob spent most of his retirement years volunteering at St. Michael’s Catholic Church maintaining the grounds of the parish. He spent numerous hours each week keeping everything clean and manicured. He built Klehr field (where the current church lies), which was used for many years for sports activities, not just for the church members but for the community at large.

A devout Catholic, an active member of the Church of St. Michael and a member of the Knights of Columbus. Bob enjoyed playing cards, was an avid Twins fan, loved fishing, gardening, softball and most of all visiting with friends and family.

Bob’s passion was his family and church. He truly adored and loved his surviving sisters, Mary Ann Mahowald of Prior Lake and Anna Mae VonBokern of Shakopee, and all of his nieces, nephews and all of his many friends.

Bob will be welcomed into heaven by his parents, Alois and Hilda Klehr, sister, Suverna (Clarence) Hennen, brother in laws, Francis Mahowald and Donald VonBokern.

On Friday October 21, 2011, on a clear fall morning, at the age of 82, Bob was welcomed in to heaven at The Lodge on Natchez in Elko, MN.

The visitation will be Wednesday October 26th from 10:00 AM-12:00 noon followed by the Mass of Christian Burial at 12:00 noon all at the Church of St. Michael in Prior Lake. Father Tom Sieg will officiate. Interment will be at St. Michael’s Catholic Cemetery in Prior Lake.
