On July 13, 2019, our beloved father, Rolf H. Klemm, passed away peacefully at the age of 79. Rolf was born August 29, 1939 to the late Karl and Marie Klemm. He is the devoted father of Kristin Vogelsang and her husband Lee, Kimberly Ward, and Ryan Klemm and his wife Trista; loving grandfather of Micheal Vogelsang, Nicholas Vogelsang, the late Ashli Ward, Jacob Ward, Joelle Ward, Tobias Ward, Tanley Klemm and Ellis Klemm. Rolf is also survived by many other loving relatives and friends. He held an immense love of nature, whether it was hiking, gardening or just relaxing outdoors. Being a violinist, he had a deep love of music which carried him into a career of teaching both music and the German language, and sharing his talents with others. After retiring from teaching High School level students, Rolf continued to be involved in the educational arena by becoming a para-professional, working with children with a variety of special needs. 

A memorial service will be held at Crossroads Church of the Nazarene, 2750 Rogers Road, Ellicot City, MD 21043 on Saturday at 11am. Reception immediately following.
