Bernard William “Bernie” Kleoppel, 63, of Sedalia, passed away peacefully on Thursday, November 5, 2020 at his home.

He was born June 5, 1957, in Independence, a son of the late Bernard D. and Wilma F. (Anson) Kleoppel. On December 2, 2000, in Sedalia, he was married to Toni Powers, who survives of the home.

Bernie was a 1975 graduate of Sacred Heart High School. In his younger years, he worked as a farmhand – a job that he loved.

After he retired in 2018, he went back to what he loved and worked for Green Hill Farms until eight weeks before his passing.
