Obituary: Edward Klock

Edward L. Klock, 63, died Monday, July 9, 2018, at his Newton residence.

He was born July 11, 1954, in Wichita, Kansas to Melvin L. and Laura M. (Cammack) Klock. Ed grew up in Wichita and was a member of the Broadway Christian Church with his parents before joining the Catholic Church in 1982.

He was a 1972 graduate of Wichita Southeast High School and received a degree in Architecture from Kansas State University in 1981. On September 18, 1982 he married Susan D. Morrison at All Saints Catholic Church in Wichita and she survives of the home.

Ed was a longtime partner with PBA Architects in Wichita and has worked with GLMV Architects also in Wichita since October 2017. During his career he renovated and created many public school buildings across the state of Kansas, including several renovations with Newton Public Schools. Other local projects that were close to his heart included renovations to the Trinity Heights United Methodist Church, Bethel College Mennonite Church, and Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church.

Ed enjoyed several hobbies in his spare time. Besides working with the Harvey County Historical Society, he also relished in woodworking and music. He would often be found working in his workshop with Tim on various projects, such as decks and speakers while he shared music with Katie and Adam. His passion for music and woodworking was most apparent in his speaker building. Ed’s greatest hobby was spending time with his family; whether it was a family vacation or an afternoon dinner, he enjoyed being with his loved ones laughing and making memories.

He is survived by his wife Susan of the home; sons: Adam Klock and Timothy (Alison) Klock both of Wichita, KS and daughter Katie (Billy) Skidmore of Moscow, ID. He is also survived by two grandchildren Matthew Dean and Mason Edward Klock both of Wichita, KS.
