Michael Kleeman, JasperAugust 5, 2020
Michael Kleeman was raised in Jasper, Indiana and passed away in his home in Vacaville, California.
Mike served in the Air Force for 25 years. Mike served in Vietnam and retired at Travis Air Force Base. Mike enjoyed serving his country and helping the people he served with.
After Mike retired, he worked for several different companies and found himself active in his Church. Mike served as an Awana’s Commander, elder, chaperone on many youth activities and mission trips. Mike wanted people to experience joy.
Mike’s desire was to create a community where no one was in need. When Mike saw someone was without, he would call, collect donations, and find a way for that person to get their need(s) met.
Mike believed in the power of community and wanted to take care of all around him.
Mike also had a thirst for knowledge. Mike would listen to books and read about how to understand the Lord better. Mike desired to know as much as he could so that he could help others. Many came to Mike for wisdom, comfort, and laughter. Mike would listen, hurt, and rejoice with all who needed it. Mike was also known to make the room laugh with little effort.
Mike is survived by his wife Jeanette Kleeman, Two daughters Amanda and Michele Kleeman, Son Andrew Kleeman, Two Brothers Robert Kleeman and Bud Kleeman, and Two Sisters Nancy Hedinger and Linda Bieker. Michael's body was donated to UC Davis. There will be a celebration of life in a year and they will place a plaque at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery.
