Obituary for Ronald Otto Klein

Ronald Otto Klein of South Jordan, Utah passed away at the age of 80 on December 1, 2018 at the IHC, IMC Murray, UT of natural causes.

Born March 26, 1938 in Salt Lake City, UT, the youngest of four children of Karl August and Ella Bachmann Klein. Graduated Class of 1956 West High School. Ron knew the value of hard work and with his exceptional abilities with calculus mathematics and mechanical principles, he created his tool and dye company “Ron Klein Tool Co.” for more than 25 years.

Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Married in the Salt Lake Temple to Carole Annette Pusey. Ron and Annette began life together on December 31, 1964. They started their family with Ron’s three daughters from his previous marriage and Annette’s daughter and two sons from her previous marriage. Within a year, our family was blessed with their youngest daughter Shelli.

Ron’s passion for rebuilding cars began when the first Corvette came out in 1953 when he was a sophomore. “It was love at first sight.” He bought his first one in California. “The insurance was more expensive than the car payment.”

Ron’s green thumb and meticulous yard work and planting flowers created his well-manicured lawns and yard every year.

He is survived by his spouse Annette and seven children: Wendy (Russ Ashley), Lisa (Bruce Hermansen), Joni (Ray Johnson), Lori (Jeff Casey), Jeff (Justie), Darren (Patricia), Shelli (Vic Hedden), 24 grandchildren and more than 40 great-grandchildren.

A viewing will be held on Friday, December 7, 2018 from 6:00-8:00 pm at Jenkins-Soffe South Valley, 1007 W. South Jordan Parkway, South Jordan, Utah. The funeral services will be held on Saturday, December 8, 2018 at 1:00 pm at the Eastlake 1st Ward, 11038 South Braidwood Drive, South Jordan, Utah, with a public viewing at the same location from 12:00-12:30 pm prior to the services.
