In his retirement, he enjoyed a quieter lifestyle at home playing Yahtzee with Debbie and visiting the brewery to meet up with his buddies. He enjoyed relaxing in his chair with Phoebe, his Yorkie, who laid by his side until his very last day.

His survivors include his wife, Debbie Klamper, her kids, Jessica (Ryan) Hansen, Lacey (Phil) Way, Kyle (Lisa) Knowlton and their children, his faithful furry companion, Phoebe, his best friend, Marty Shoemaker, his brother, David Klamper (Debi) and sister, Kay Dokken (Jim) and many nieces and nephews.

Klamper Family... I was shocked to read of Doug's passing. Although it's been years since I have seen him, there was a time when there was a worn path between 5th and 4th Avenue's. Good memories! Thoughts and prayers for the entire family.
