Dennis L. Klosterman

Dennis L. “Augie” Klosterman, 70, of Bonduel, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Saturday, April 6, 2019. Born on Dec. 29, 1948, in Shawano, he was the fourth of five sons born to the late August and Frieda (Priem) Klosterman. He was raised on the family farm in the Town of Hartland and was a graduate of Bonduel High School. After graduating, Augie worked for his uncle, Walter, at the Klosterman Cheese Factory until he enlisted with the United States Marine Corps to serve during the Vietnam War. After returning to the Bonduel area, Augie worked for 3-D Manufacturing for many years and later for World Wide Signs until retiring in 2013. Augie owned a cabin near Bowler for many years where he enjoyed hunting, splitting wood, putting in food plots, relaxing on the front porch and simply being outdoors in the country. He also loved all types of fishing, watching Busch Series and NASCAR racing, socializing with friends and family, woodworking and sitting outside on the patio.

Augie is survived by his significant other of more than 20 years, Deb Meyers; his special fur buddy, Hunter; his daughter, Jill (Scott) Schreiner, of Eagle, Colorado; his son, Neil, of Omro; two granddaughters, Delaney and Leah; stepdaughter, Jennifer (Trevor) Murdock, of Shawano; stepson, Jeremy (Nicki) Meyers, of Shawano; seven stepgranddaughters, Payten, Jorden, Teagen, Kennedi, Kadence, Kinlee and Lillien; three brothers, Marvin (Althea) Klosterman, of Bonduel, Norman (Barbara) Klosterman, of Henderson, Nevada, and Randy (Gloria) Klosterman, of DePere; several nieces, nephews, cousins; and many, many special friends, including Toby and Roxanne Tilleson, of Bonduel, Mike and Connie Babino, of Bonduel, Norm and Barb Harris, of Weyauwega, and Maynard and Pattie Boerst, of Bonduel.

Augie was preceded in death by his parents; a brother, Wally; and his fishing buddies that were more like family, Phil and Pat Wudtke.

In honor of Augie’s wishes, no funeral service will be held at this time. A celebration of his life will take place at a later date.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the EMS team, the Shawano County Sheriff’s Department, and the Swedberg Funeral Home for all their help during such a difficult time.
