Dave Klages of Blenheim passed away at home on May 8, 2024.  He was the much-loved husband for 43 years of Brenda (Caron), father of Stacey and Josh, step-father of Deb and Becky and brother of Nancy (John).

He was born 70 years ago in Cochrane to the late Alvin & Beth (Knight) Klages (2011).  He was predeceased by his sister Deborah (2003).   Friends will remember him from his many years at Southwestern Regional Centre working on the wards, in housekeeping and retiring from the transportation department.

Dave was affected by a rare disease called Idiopathic Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension.  If you wish to remember him with a memorial donation, he would have appreciated supporting research and treatment to bring awareness and help to others affected by the disease.  Online condolences for the family may be left at www.blenheimcommunityfuneralhome.com  and donations may be made either at the funeral home or online at https://phacanada.ca/get-involved/donate

I remember Dave well from SRC mostly when he worked in transportation.....many pleasant chats with him. My deepest sympathy to Brenda and all of his family and friends.

Brenda, although it has been many years since there has been contact with the Klages' family, I remember Dave and his parents fondly. Seeing that Dave was at SW Regional Centre, I know that he is well-be remembered and loved by many staff and residents as they were a close knit community. My prayers are with you, Stacey, Josh, Deb, Becky and Dave's sister, Nancy. May God's Holy Spirit be your true Comforter as He promised. P. Marg Moriyama
