Timothy R. Klug, 54, of Portland (Waterloo) went to be with his Heavenly Father and Savior on Thursday February 27th, 2014 at the Columbus Community Hospital.

He was born on February 1st, 1960 in Columbus, the son of Dick and Jane Klug. Tim married Cindy Saltz Theder on June 4th, 2007.

Tim worked in the printing industry, beginning at Perry Printing in Waterloo in 1978. After Perry’s closed, he continued to work at various companies in the print industry, finishing his career at 4-Lakes Label in Sun Prairie.

Tim loved anything that had to do with hunting and fishing. His favorite day of the year was opening day of gun Deer season, followed closely by opening Walleye season, opening Pheasant season, and opening Duck season. He was happiest when he was out-of-doors enjoying the day with family and friends.

Tim will be sadly missed by his loving wife, Cindy, his mother Jane, his sister Le Anne and brother Tom, nieces Lacquine, Crystal, Hannah, and Paige, nephew and godson Forrest and nephew Jared, aunts Jean Browning, Carol Stelse and Mille Neis, uncle Ron (Marlene), mother- and father-in-law John and Carol Saltz, sister-in-law Boni (Carl) Wendel, brother-in-law Gary (Liz Badillo) Saltz, as well as many relatives and friends. Tim is also survived by his faithful hunting companions and spoiled little girls Hunter and Kadi.

Preceding Tim in death was his father Dick, as well as his maternal and paternal grandparents.

A memorial service will be held 6:00 pm on Friday March 7th at St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Waterloo with the Rev. James Adomeit presiding. Visitation will be held at the church on Friday from 2 pm to 6 pm.

Donations may be made in Tim’s memory to St. John’s Ev. Lutheran Church and School of Waterloo.

God saw that you were getting tired when a cure was not to be
So He closed his arms around you and whispered ‘Come to Me’
You didn’t deserve what you went through and so He gave you rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful, He only takes the best.
And when I saw you sleeping, so peaceful, free from pain;
I could not wish you back to suffer that again.
