It is with deep sadness that the Center – and the entire Medicare advocacy community – mourns the loss of Michael John Klug, who passed away earlier this week. Mike’s obituary is available in the Cedar Rapids Gazette.
A long-time Medicare advocate who passionately served his clients, most recently at the SHIP TA Center, Mike always exhibited a profound kindness and thoughtfulness in everything he did. Many who knew him described him as one of the best people they had ever met. Whether it was an esoteric Medicare issue, a talk about his beloved Chartres Cathedral, postcards from afar, or deep conversations about fatherhood or adoption, Mike’s keen intelligence, wisdom, joy and golden heart were always on display.
We offer our deepest condolences to his wife Merce, his daughter Cora and the rest of his family. May his memory be a blessing.
