Carl Henry Klusman, 93, formerly of Paola, Kansas, died May 15 2018 at Good Samaritan, Olathe, Kansas. He was born October 8, 1924 in rural Lenexa to Harry and Gertrude (Hanser) Klusman.

He was preceded in death by his parents, wife of 69 years, Gladys (Spielbusch) Klusman, brother Ernest Klusman, and son Robert James Klusman.

His early childhood was spent on his grandfather’s farm in Johnson County.

Carl enlisted in the Army in 1944. He was seriously injured in Luzon, Philippines on February 3rd, 1945 at Zig Zag Path and received a Purple Heart.

After the war Carl became a State Farm Agent in Paola, where he and Gladys worked until his retirement in 1981.
