He was in the fire brigade, in the soldiers' comradeship and in the rifle club: everywhere they described Klaus Eisenblätter as a reliable expert.
Now he has died at the age of 83.
Höhenkirchen-Siegertsbrunn - “Honor parade, stand still.” How often could Klaus Eisenblätter have given this command?
He himself, who died after a long and serious illness at the age of 83 with his loved ones, is denied this service.
Due to the pandemic, the flag clubs cannot pay their last respects to the popular Höhenkirchner, as they would otherwise have gladly done.
Above all, the warrior and soldier comradeship owes a lot to him, as he was deputy chairman for 24 years and previously an assessor.
Yes, this year the honorary member would have been honored for 60 years of membership.
In 2011 he was a member of the festival committee when it was time to organize the 90th anniversary of the association.
In a sovereign manner, he again issued the commands for honoring the fallen and missing, as he did many times - especially at funerals - otherwise.
"With Klaus Eisenblätter, the warrior and soldier comradeship is losing a lovable and loyal comrade who, whenever it was necessary, stood up for our association with all his strength and personality," states today's association chairman Fritz Schatz.
His knowledge always found grateful customers, as he knew the club like no other.
"He soon made a name for himself because of his skills"
Eisenblätter was born in Neuruppin, Brandenburg, in 1937;
but the family came to Höhenkirchen due to the chaos of war.
His father Willi was a responsible person in the warrior and soldier comradeship (1956 to 1962 vice, 1962 to 1974 chairman), his mother Luise the right hand man of the cashier (assistant cashier and "club servant") and the only woman in the club.
Klaus Eisenblätter was somehow born into club loyalty and work.
In 1979 he joined the Schützengesellschaft Frohsinn 1884 Höhenkirchen.
Rifleman Rudolf Pauli speaks of a comrade who was highly valued for his sincerity and honesty.
“He was particularly interested in shooting from the room, which he always accompanied with care and commitment,” says Pauli.
And the fire brigade, too, has lost a well-deserved fellow in its ranks.
Klaus Eisenblätter joined the military at the beginning of 1973.
“He soon made a name for himself with the other comrades because of his skills and was - whenever - immediately on the spot to provide help,” reports club chairman Robert Loborec.
“Klaus was never a firefighter striving for fame, honor and rank, but a firefighter who stood out for his creativity and skill.
He didn't care how many stripes he had on his uniform jacket, he always wore them with pride under the sign of the Höhenkirchen fire brigade. "
Due to age, Eisenblätter retired at the end of 1998 with the rank of main firefighter, but remained loyal to his fire brigade.
Whenever it was possible for him, he came to the fire brigade on various occasions and celebrations and "contributed to many a sociable group with his unshakable humor".
On his 80th birthday, the Wehr also went to Klaus Eisenblätter to congratulate, like many others.
But then because of his illness it became more and more quiet around him.
His family cared for him lovingly, especially his beloved wife Anni.
Not only Loborec is certain that Klaus Eisenblätter has "now got his well-deserved place in heaven" and is keeping an eye on everyone who loved and valued him.
A family member, friend and comrade has left who will be remembered forever by many people.
