This memorial was created in honor of Joseph ""Lt. Col Joseph Klunder"" Dominic Klunder of Alexandria, Virginia.

Joseph was born on January 10, 1916 in New York, NY and passed on November 16, 2005. Joseph was loved by many and will be dearly missed by all friends and family.

A proper obituary can be found here:

Joseph D. Klunder

Occupation: O-5, Army Officer, Businessman, Store Manager

Joseph Dominic Klunder, 89, was a retired Army lieutenant colonel. He later was a manager at a Woodward & Lothrop department store in Washington. He died on Nov. 16 at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital in Alexandria. He had complications from a brain tumor operation in September.

ol. Klunder, a native of New York City, served in the Army from 1941 to 1961, most of the time in the Transportation Corps. During World War II, he arrived at Normandy in the days after the invasion. He also participated in the Inchon amphibious landing during the Korean War.

His final active-duty assignment was adjutant of the 9th Logistical Command headquarters on Okinawa. His decorations include the Bronze Star.

Col. Klunder settled in the Washington area in 1961 and spent 20 years at Woodward & Lothrop, retiring as a manager in the rug and home furnishings department.

He was a member of St. Louis Catholic Church in Alexandria, where he lived.

His first wife, Lillian Wagers Klunder, died in 1958.

Survivors include his wife of 46 years, Ann Jordan Klunder of Alexandria; three children from his first marriage, Gretchen Raber of Alexandria, Joseph Klunder Jr. of New Carrollton and Mark Klunder of Las Cruces, N.M.; two sons from his second marriage, Navy Capt. Matthew Klunder of Naval Air Station Lemoore, Calif., and Loren Klunder of Alexandria; 12 grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren.

As a distant relative, I myself feel proud to have "Joseph Klunder" as my name. I love the military and support them 100%. I would love to help with my "(Joseph) Klunder Education Challenge".
