Stephen Douglas Klemmer
Stephen Douglas Klemmer, of Lenexa, KS, passed away on July 22, 2018, at the age of 61. Stephen was born on August 26, 1956, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and grew up in Palmyra, New Jersey, where he attended Palmyra High School, class of 1974. Steve spent a good amount of time living in Florida and made his way to Kansas where he met his wife Janet; they were married in 2003 in Napa Valley, California. Steve was a Master Electrician and spent most of his career as a commercial manager and estimator. Steve’s dedication to his career was equally matched by his love of a good time. He was a consummate host with an exceptional ability to bring people together. He created years of memories for his friends and family while at the helm of his Kansas City Chiefs bus. He had a talent for cooking, a deep pride in his yard, enjoyed golfing and had an unfailing love of the sea, boating and fishing. Steve will be loved and missed by surviving wife, Janet, and sons, Brad of Los Angeles, California and Jason of West Berlin, New Jersey. A Celebration of Life party is being planned; September 22, 2018, Brookridge Golf and Fitness, Overland Park, KS with time to be announced later. Steve’s final wishes were to have his ashes scattered on a fishing trip to Key West, Florida and will take place in early 2019.
