Otto Curtis Kling
February 19, 1929 ~ July 12, 2019

Otto Curtis Kling, 90, passed from this life Friday, July 12, 2019. He was born the son of Otto Curtis Kling, Sr. & Mildred (Erdell) Kling. In Otto’s spare time, he was involved in many things. Some of his most enjoyable were going to Outback & Cattleman’s, building & tinkering with stuff, feeding his birds, taking care of his yard, going to his past employment at Wiley Post every Thanksgiving for Thanksgiving dinner, but his absolute favorite thing was his dog, Pumpkin. Otto was a member of Hillcrest Christian Church, where he cared about his church members dearly and he was a lifetime member of the Will Rogers Air National Guard Retiree Association, the Gray Eagles. He taught all his children a very good work ethic & when his sons were younger, he liked boy scouting with them. Otto got to go on two tiger cruises with his son, which he enjoyed very much. He had a knack for clothes & shoes, never wanting to throw them away because they, too, had character.

He was preceded in death by:
• His parents
• And his wife, Velma Ruth (Scarbrough) Kling

He leaves lasting memories with:
• His children, Steven Kling of Oklahoma City, Kristy Sanders and Mark Milton, of Broken Arrow and Kevin Kling and wife Susan of Weatherford, Texas
• Brother, Alvin Kling and wife Karen of Crowley, Texas
• Five grandchildren, Tiffany Kling Goode, Rebecca Kling, Dusten Norris, Amanda Sanders Griggs and Kevin Curtis Kling, II
• Three great grandchildren, Dawson Kling, Dylan Goode and Roen James Kling
• And his favorite dog, Pumpkin

Our visits were few, but I never remember seeing Uncle Otto without a smile on his face. He would also call me after Christmas to thank me for sending him a Christmas card. And we would have surprisingly long wonderful conversations. He and Auntie Velma are sadly missed.
Peace be with you Uncle Otto,

Stephanie Ann Scarbrough Korenek
