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)
