Sal and Jeff, our sympathies to you and all of your family. Gayle and John Johnson
Keith John Block, son of Wallace and Bertha Block was born August 7, 1939 in George, Iowa. He attended Storm Lake High School. On August 21, 1960, Keith was united in marriage to Marlene Klocko in Pocahontas, Iowa.
Keith began working as a machinist for Iowa Hydraulics in Pocahontas for eight years. He then moved to Watertown, Minnesota where he worked for Steners Industries in Winsted Minnesota for eleven years. Keith rejoined Iowa Hydraulics for a few years and began delivering propane in Newell, Fonda, Red Oak and Ayrshire.
Keith enjoyed fishing, gardening, and tinkering and doing bodywork cars. He liked spending time working with taxidermy and using his shortwave radio. More than anything, he enjoyed spending time with family and friends.
On Friday, April 26, Keith passed away at the Ruthven Care Center.
Left to cherish his memory are his children: Salena Siefken, and her husband, Jeffrey of Lone Rock, Iowa, Meloni Lindquist and her husband, Kurt of Bristol, Wisconsin, Wallace Block of Ayrshire, Iowa and John Block of Emmetsburg, Iowa; six grandchildren: Erika Siefken and fiancé, Scott Higgins, Aaron Siefken and his wife, Kellie, Mackenzie Siefken and fiancé, Scott Kollash, Carrie Block, Bryce Block and Ryan Goodburn; three great-grandchildren: Janelle Siefken, Isaiah Siefken and Jase Mitchell; two sisters: Charlyne Kruger and Barbara Rodriguez and her husband, Ralph all of Windsor, Colorado.
He was preceded in death by his parents and daughter, Tracey Block.
To the Block family, I’m so sorry for your loss. Uncle Keith is with Grandma “B” and Tracey now. I know he is pain free and at ease. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. May God give you all peace. Love, your cousin, Kerry.
