2015 Clayton Klein

Fowlerville's "Walking Man" Passes Away At 95

News Photo 2/25/15 - Clayton Klein, who had gained attention for his annual walks across Michigan, has passed away. The lifelong Fowlerville resident was 95 when he died on Sunday, two days before his 96th birthday. His daughter, Deb Klein, said he died peacefully under hospice care. A memorial service is planned for 11am on Thursday at the Fowlerville United Methodist Church. A 1936 graduate of Fowlerville High School, Klein was the author of several books, his most recent in 2012 titled “My First 90 Years.” In it, he shared stories and highlights during his life as a farmer, business owner and outdoor adventurer to exploring Canada’s river systems and adventures in Mexico and Central America in the 1960’s. But Klein was probably best known in recent years for his annual walks from 2005 to 2009, when he walked 425 miles from Paradise in the Upper Peninsula to Hell in Putnam Township, on behalf of Hospice of Michigan. He is survived by a son and daughter and two granddaughters. He was preceded in death by his wife of 62 years; Marjorie, who died in 2003. Memorial contributions may be made to Livingston Community Hospice. (JK)

1930 Happy New Year

The Fowlerville Review, now owned by the Rabys after purchasing the paper from G.L. Adams in 1929, celebrated the new year for Fowlerville with comments from various local businesses.
With Juniper and Anise, my historical novel of a woman bootlegger during the Prohibition Era, now available for purchase as an ebook on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Bookstrand, and my publisher's site at, I am working hard on a companion novel.  It is set in the same time frame, with new characters and new trials and tribulations.
While busy with research, I thought the above ad would also be of interest to my readers.
