Wallace Neil Klassen was suddenly taken home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2014.
Wally was born on Sept. 15, 1950, to Otto and Eunice Klassen in American Falls, ID.
Wally grew up farming with his dad and brothers. He had great mechanical ability which in turn fueled his excitement for fast cars.
His love for trucks started when he was farming. In 1996 the farm partnership was dissolved and by January 2000 his long awaited interest became a reality when Diesel Depot opened its doors.
He is survived by his dear wife, Sue; his six children, Doug (Tricia), Lisa (Tim) Sester, Gwen (David) Harman, Marc (Michelle), Brad (Ashley), and Rose; 14 grandchildren; his mother; four brothers; three sisters; with many nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his father, Otto; grandson, Braden (9); a niece, Caroline Hadley (21); a great nephew, Caleb Leland (10); and a brother-in-law, Dale Kilcup (28).
Funeral services were held Monday, Feb. 3, at 11 a.m. in the Aberdeen Middle School with a viewing at 9:30 a.m. Graveside services followed at Homestead Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Bible Truth Publishers or American Bible Society.
