As University Supervisor for Student Teachers at SIU-e, I visited some of Bob's classes when he was a Physical Education Cooperating Teacher at BAC. He was a special teacher and baseball coach and is fondly remembered by his associates. I wish to send condolences to his family.

My deepest sympathy to Mr. Klube's family. During one summer many years ago I was in his golf class at BAC (now SWIC). I learned a lot from him in a short time--not just golf but patience as well.

To the Klube Family. I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Robert. He was a great man and had major influence on me as I began my baseball career. He was always very complimentary and positive, and such a great teacher, on and off the field. He will be missed. RIP Bob Klube.

Our deepest sympathy. Coach was such a big part of my high school days at Waterloo with our baseball team going to state!
