John Klaffer Obituary Death – To the family of John Klaffer, his friends, his fellow demo derby competitors, and everyone else whose life he influenced in some way. On the evening of Sunday, January 15, 2023, John unexpectedly and suddenly passed away. John moved to the Fairfield/Geff, Illinois area when he was a young child and has lived there ever since. John was the type of person who never met a stranger, and he was always quick to lend a helping hand, share his knowledge about hobbies or life, or simply make a person feel accepted around him.
He was a wonderful husband, and now his wife Cindy is left behind to try to figure out how to pick up the pieces of their lives. His two daughters, who will have to learn to adjust to their daily lives without him, are among the people who miss him the most. Nobody saw this coming, and nobody would have known how to get ready or start saving for a situation like this even if they had. Donations will be put toward his funeral and burial, and a memorial stone will be placed at the cemetery.
We need everyone’s help to put these donations together. At this time, funeral preparations are being taken care of at Nale’s Funeral Home in Fairfield. Information regarding the funeral will be distributed in a short amount of time. The memorial service for John is being planned by John’s daughter Talisa Klaffer and her fiance Ethan Church, as well as by John’s wife Cindy. All of the donations will be put toward the cost of the memorial service. Donations can be sent to the family through Venmo (618-919-9182), Cash App, or PayPal, and they will be delivered to Nale’s Funeral Home in Fairfield.
The funeral home will also accept donations to help the family in their time of need. I am indebted to each and every one of you. We are planning on holding a benefit in the future with Jenny’s Concessions in the hopes that it will reduce the amount of financial stress that the immediate family is under.
