He was the son of Marlin W. Klostergaard.
Death13 October 2019Bradley Chris Klostergaard died on 13 October 2019 at age 60 Bradley Klostergaard age 60, of Beresford, SD went to be with the Lord on Sunday, October 13, 2019. He passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, after a valiant battle with cancer.

Funeral service will be 10:00 a.m. Thursday, October 17, 2019 at the Apostolic Christian Church in Lester, IA. Burial will follow at the family cemetery on the Klostergaard homestead near Beresford, SD.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been set up in Brad's honor. Donations can be made to the "Brad Klostergaard Cancer Memorial at 29289 472nd Avenue Beresford, SD 57004.

Bradley Chris Klostergaard, was born on September 8, 1959 in Canton, SD to Corky and Roberta (Peterson) Klostergaard. Brad was raised on the farm with his two younger sisters, Marla and Ann. He attended North Star Country School through the 6th Grade and then went on to graduate from Beresford High School in 1977. After high school, Brad attended Mitchell Tech where he earned his degree in Ag Business. On June 9, 1990, Brad and Linda (Knobloch) Klostergaard were united in marriage and on that day, he also welcomed Angela as his daughter. Together they were blessed with four more children Bryce, Karmen, Alison and Morgan. Brad and Linda lived and raised their family on the third generation Klostergaard farm.

Brad’s love for agriculture started at a young age and quickly evolved into a lifelong career. In 1975, he began working at the Sioux Falls Stockyards alongside his dad. In 2006, Brad and his partners opened SFRL (Sioux Falls Regional Livestock). Throughout his career, Brad became very active and well respected in the livestock industry. He served on many boards, including former President of the South Dakota Livestock Markets Association. Not only was this lifestyle Brad’s chosen career, it was a passion that was evident to all who had the privilege of working with him. He also enjoyed farming and had the pleasure of sharing it with his son. Checking the cows with Bryce and driving through the pasture, where he spent countless hours, was one of Brad’s favorite pastimes.

Family was a top priority for Brad and quality time with his wife, children and grandchildren were the moments he cherished the most. When his children were younger, Brad encouraged them to participate in every sport and extracurricular activity possible. He especially enjoyed their involvement with judging and showing livestock. If Brad and Linda weren’t at events supporting their children, they could often be found at the lake where many memories were made. For the past 20 years, Lake Okoboji served as a relaxing getaway for Brad, his family and friends.

In 2014, when Brad was diagnosed with cancer, he and his family began the fight of a lifetime. While he spent the five and a half years fighting, every moment was filled with a positive attitude and unwavering faith. The journey strengthened his relationship with Christ, and he was baptized in the Apostolic Christian Church on March 4, 2018.

Brad found joy in making others laugh, he will be remembered for his quick wit and one of a kind personality. He had a sincere heart that always put others before himself. His entire life was spent nurturing and serving those he loved, even until his final day. Brad was a genuine husband, father, papa, son, brother, uncle, colleague and friend – he will be greatly missed by so many.

Left to cherish Brad’s memory is his dear wife of 29 years, Linda Klostergaard of Beresford, SD; mother, Roberta Klostergaard of Vermillion, SD; daughter, Angela Knobloch (Ashton) of Minneapolis, MN; Bryce Klostergaard of Beresford, SD; Karmen (Casey) Peters of Harrisburg, SD; Alison Klostergaard of Sioux Falls, SD; and Morgan (Jake) Newborg of Beresford, SD; grandchildren, AJ, Amirion, Amayah, Adahlia, Anorah and Lakynn; sisters, Marla (Steve) Meyer of Pensacola, FL, and Ann (Roger) Filips of Hartington, NE; sisters-in-law, Carolyn (Dale) Hartzler of Marshallville, OH, Shirley (Bob) De Smet of Alvord, IA, Donna (Mike) Barber of Sioux Falls, SD, and Chalea Knobloch of Alvord, IA; along with many extended family members.

Brad was preceded in death by his father, Corky Klostergaard; parents-in-law, Art and Elgeva Knobloch; brothers-in-law, Vern Knobloch and Loren Knobloch.

She and Norris attended their children's school events including all home and away games, band and chorus concerts, and summer band trips. Betty enjoyed numerous family camping adventures to the Black Hills of South Dakota. As their grandchildren grew, Betty and Norris sent handmade Christmas Ornaments made of common household materials to each child until they reached 12 years old.
