David was born on March 6, 1945 in St. Cloud to Albert and Alvina (Pomeranke) Klug. He attended St. Cloud Tech, graduating in 1963. Dave was on the varsity wrestling team. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 1963, and proudly served his country in Vietnam in 1966 until his honorable discharge in 1967. Dave married Mary Fernholz on August 15, 1970 at Redeemer Lutheran Church, St. Cloud.
Dave always said “I’m different and I like to be that way.” He was right; he has done many different things in his life. Dave owned rental properties, sold real estate, went to beauty school, owned a wig shop, made and sold candles, and was a self-employed roofer, remodeler, and cabinet maker. He was a soccer coach, wrote three books, and wrote poetry. Dave was a man of many talents and could fix anything. He was also a prankster and had a wonderful sense of humor. Dave was very personable and was able to talk to anybody.
Dave is survived by his wife, Mary; children, Heather KIug of Brooklyn Park, Chara Klug of Brooklyn Center, Damien (Katie) Klug of Clear Lake, Allison (Isaac) Reynolds of Lester Prairie, Cassidy (Jason) Jones of Ham Lake; grandchildren, Brekken, Rowen, Sawyer Klug; Wesley Klug; Henry, Amelia, Eleanor Reynolds; Peja, Lena Jones; siblings, Don (Loretta) Klug, Dennis (Darlene) Klug, Sylvia (Don) Weeres, and Helen (Carl) Oltz; as well as many in-laws, nieces, and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his infant daughter, Megan; parents, Albert and Alvina Klug; in-laws, Barney and Virginia Fernholz.
In lieu of flowers, please write a memory of Dave to share with his family.
