images REPORTER EXTRA ART Am Flag copyRobert G. Kleinfeldt, 95, of Orland Park, died peacefully December 24 in the Memory Care unit at Warren Barr Rehabilitation Center in Orland Park with family members by his side.

Robert was born September 13, 1927, in Chicago to the late George and Florence (Miller) Kleinfeldt. Robert was a proud graduate of Lane Tech High School, Class of 1945. in Chicago.

He was a Navy veteran serving throughout the Pacific Ocean from 1945-1947. 

On October 7, 1950, he married Josephine Muscia, also from Chicago. They resided in Chicago until 1954 when he and family moved to Orland Park. The couple celebrated 71 years of marriage with 67 of those in their home in Orland Park until Josephine preceded him in death on September 20, 2022.

Robert learned the baking and cake decorating skills when in the Navy and continued that career path in a variety of privately owned and store related bakeries. With additional training over the years at the Wilton School of Cake Decorating, his wedding and other special occasion cakes were greatly appreciated by many. Robert retired from full time bakery work in the early 1990s but continued working part time in store bakeries and part time on the custodial staff in a local school district.

Throughout his life he was an avid vegetable and rose gardener as well as fisherman in the summers. In the fall pheasant, goose, deer, antelope, and elk hunting were his outdoor passions.

Parakeet breeding and showing was also a hobby of Roberts. He did this until both children were born and resumed it after both children had moved out of the house. During Robert and Josephine’s retirement years the parakeet interest gave them opportunities to travel to places like Hawaii, Las Vegas, Phoenix, and many Midwest cities.  

Survivors include Steven (Karyn) Kleinfeldt, Newton, Wis., and Janet Stolarski. Palos Heights; cherished grandfather of five grandchildren: Matt Kleinfeldt, Cara (Stephen) Kramer, Zylia Kleinfeldt, Christopher (Amanda) Stolarski, Megan (Tim) Lozen and great-grandfather to eleven: Ezra, Cordelia, Sonnet, Hero, Raleigh, Halyn, Isla, Annabel, Josephine, Griffin, and Keller; fond uncle of four nieces and nephews: older brother to William Kleinfeldt: brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Gerry and Frances O’Connell. He was preceded in death by his wife, Josephine, his parents: George and Florence (Miller) Kleinfeldt: his father-in-law and mother-in-law Joseph and Aurelia Muscia: brother and sister-in-law: Glenn and Sylvia Kleinfeldt: sister-in-law Darlene Kleinfeldt.  

Memorial visitation will be on Sunday January 8, from 1-3 p.m. at the Kerry Funeral Home and Cremation Care Center, 7020 W. 127th Street, Palos Heights. Inurnment will be private.
