Martin LeRoy Klym was born on August 9, 1927, to Peter and Mary Virginia (Theriault) Klym in Minneapolis. He graduated high school at Minneapolis South and went on to serve his country honorably in the United States Navy. Martin married Betty Harter on April 14, 1951, in Mason City, IA. He was an employee at Minnegasco for over 37 years as a gas main support and delivery driver. Martin had a wonderful sense of humor and could make anyone laugh. He was an avid reader of Louis L’Amour novels and loved learning new vocabulary. Martin was also a proud member of AA for over 44 years. He enjoyed fishing, traveling, writing, and running. Their travels included seeing all the covered bridges in Madison County, IA. Above all else, he loved his family and would often send hand written letters to his grandchildren on their birthdays. He was a loving father, husband, grandfather, son, and friend who will be dearly missed.

Martin is survived by his children, Judy (Jim) Wnuk of Princeton, Linda (Gary) Henchen of Princeton, and Gary (JoAnn) Klym of Becker; grandchildren, Julie (Frederick) McGee, Michael (Kelly) Henchen, Lisa Jones, Matthew Klym, Andrew (Angie) Klym, Daniel (Elizabeth Kolanczyk) Klym, Jacob (Courtney Serra) Klym, and Emily (Sam Freese) Klym; and great-grandchildren, Brady and Logan Klym, Trent Bentz-Henchen and Bryce Henchen, and Ethan Klym.

He is preceded in death by his parents and step-father, Al Warren; wife, Betty; brother, Donald “Raymond” Klym; and special friend, Lorraine Orton.
