Kenneth Charles Klatt, 90, July 8, 1928 -  April 10, 2019

Kenneth Charles Klatt passed away peacefully, Wednesday morning, April 10, 2019 at Lakeview Hospital in Stillwater, MN.  Kenny was born on July 8, 1928 in Deer Park, Wisconsin, a son of Otto and Elsie Klatt and a brother to eleven siblings.

Kenny grew up in Clear Lake and graduated from Clear Lake Union Free High School in 1946. He spent most of his life working in the dairy and cheese industry.  Always being a “Milkman”.   Kenny began working at the Clear Lake Creamery in 1946.  This was followed by hauling milk in old fashioned milk cans during the 1950s and transitioned to bulk tank trucking thru 1978.  Kenny then worked for Stella Cheese until his retirement in 1990.  During this time, he also did roof repair as a side job. After retirement, you would likely find Kenny in his garage repairing small engines for friends. He continued to do this well into his 80s.  

His hobbies included playing baseball as a young man on the Town Team, bowling, fishing and hunting.   Kenny was a huge fan of the Wisconsin Badgers, Milwaukee Brewers and Green Bay Packers.  He is also well known as a Clear Lake area historian.  He had a phenomenal memory for people and events of his life in the Clear Lake area.
