Obituary for Steve G. Klingensmtih

We are sad to announce that on October 15, 2020 we lost
Steve Klingensmith to cancer. He is survived by his Mother,
Maxine Grybas Klingensmith of Fair Oaks, CA and five siblings,
Dana Newell (David Thorman) of Gold River, CA, Keri
Mistler of Pacific Grove, CA, Dave Klingensmith (Carole) of
Folsom, CA, Rich Klingensmith of Shingle Springs, CAand Jon
Klingensmith (Francene) of Yuba City,CA. Steve was a loving
Uncle to many nieces and nephews and he never met a dog he
didn’t like. Steve will be reunited with his Dad; they are probably
fishing now.
Steve was born in Salinas, California. From an early age he
would spend hours playing with tools, and modifying his bicycles
and skate boards. As a youngster he moved with his family
to Carmichael, California in 1970 where he attended Thomas
Kelley Elementary, Barrett Middle School and Del Campo High
In 1978 he moved to live with his Dad, Richard Klingensmith and his brother Jon in Los
Angeles. It was while Steve attended Culver City High School that he recognized his artistic
ability and nurtured his skills in wood shop and welding.
He moved to Dixon 24 years ago and it didn’t take him long to embrace its relaxed pace, the
feeling of community and a career with Grand Rental Station and later called Dixon Rental
Center. He was the equipment wizard, able to fix anything or work his magic with the welding
torch, or create a 1950’s Roadster backdrop.
His friendly smile and witty humor attracted many from all walks of life. Steve’s favorite past
time was fishing. He was a member of Dixon Boat Club and enjoyed many years fishing on Lake
Berryessa and Putah Creek. Next to fishing Steve loved to hop on his Harley Davidson and just
ride. There was nothing else that could equate freedom for him.
Steve loved his country, 2nd chances and the camaraderie of the gang; you know who you are.
There will be a Celebration of Life at a later date.
In lieu of flowers Donations can be made in memory of Steve Klingensmith to SPCA,
American Legion Post 208, or the Ken Mistler Scout Campership Fund at First Northern Bank.
