Obituary of Joseph Klodzinski (1947 – 2021) – Piperton, TN



Joseph Allan Klodzinski from Piperton, TN, began her new journey on Monday, October 18, 2021, at the age of 74. Allan was born April 20, 1947 to Joseph H. and Glenys J. Klodzinski in Little Rock, AR. He graduated from White Station High School in 1965, then attended Christian Brothers University and graduated in Electrical Engineering in 1970 while working as a jeweler. He found, however, that electrical engineering was not as intriguing as he once thought and continued his career as a jeweler. Allan was widely known in the Memphis area as one of the finest jewelers due to his exceptional craftsmanship. He mentored many people along the way and made many lifelong friends on his journey.

Allan has often reminded us “” Do not look at something for what it is but for what it could be “”. He was one of the most creative, inventive, and handy men to ever walk the earth. He had a passion for woodworking. One of his most notable projects was the altar he designed and built for the Church of the Holy Apostles. The base of each leg of the altar was made of wood from the nave of the original Church of the Holy Apostles. If he dreamed about it, he could build it, and if you broke it, whatever it was, he could fix it. After all, according to him… you can only open and close the door a certain number of times before part of the door breaks, and someone will have to fix it.

Allan married the love of his life, Bonnie Stanley, on May 27, 1968. They shared 53 wonderful years of marriage. Allan is survived by his wife Bonnie Klodzinski, daughter Kristi Mulrooney (Eric Divelbiss), son Michael Klodzinski (Anna), granddaughters Samantha and Emma Mulrooney, and furbabies Peanut and FeFe.
