Gary Ronald Klemp, 67, sadly passed away on Jan. 4, 2023 from a tragic
accident while at his home in Lake Havasu City.

Gary was born in Kenosha, Wisconsin on Feb. 11, 1955, to Burton Paul
Klemp and Ida Nerling Klemp. Gary married Lorna Marie Tenuta on April
14, 1973. They moved to Anaheim, California in 1985. Gary was a
machinist by trade and worked at Arco Precision Industries.

In 1991, Gary bought the business and ran it successfully until his
retirement 27 years later. Gary moved to Murrieta, California in 1995
and later to Lake Havasu City where he had frequently visited over the
past 30 years. Gary was a craftsman and an artist with a passion for
life and a gift for storytelling. He loved the outdoors and was an avid
fisherman and hunter. He would throw a line in the water any chance he
got and returned to Wisconsin for hunting every year.

More than anything Gary loved spending time with family and friends, and
to him they are one and the same. Gary's kind heart and infectious laugh
will be sadly missed by everyone that knew him as a father, papa,
brother, uncle, or friend.

Gary is survived by his wife Lorna, his daughter Carri Grant and her
husband Glenn, their children Emily and Jake, his son Jeremy and his
wife Shauna, their children Dylan and Kayli, his Brother Paul Klemp, and
Sisters Debbie Klemp and Diane Briggs.

Services will be held on Friday, Jan. 20 at 11 a.m. at Our Lady of the
Lake Catholic Church in Lake Havasu City with internment to immediately
follow at Lake Havasu Memorial Gardens.

Services were entrusted to the care of Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home.
Thoughts and condolences can be sent to the family at www.lietz-
