He attended Blue Earth Area Schools throughout his childhood, and graduated in 2003 from RRMR High School in Rockford, IA. Klint loved to smile, loved to put smiles on other people and loved to be loved, he truly had the biggest heart. His kids were his greatest gift to this world, and he was the happiest being outside playing ball and fishing with the boys. He was so proud of his brothers and sisters and LOVED his family. His friends were also a big part of his life and loved them fiercely. He never forgot about his Easton friends and of course the Bago boys, and the many friends throughout Iowa. He embraced his Native Pride and was a proud member of the Ho-Chunk Nation. He was so proud to be a member of the Local 67 Iron Workers Union and his brothers that worked with him. He thrived being on the iron at the highest point on the job. Most recently he took pride having the opportunity to work on the new Vikings Stadium. He was good at everything he put his mind to such as wrestling, baseball, football, frisbee golf, MMA fighting, well ask Klint he was the best at everything :-) especially telling jokes.
