The Dachauer Nachrichten mourns the loss of their employee from Hebertshausen Klaus Rabl.

He died at the age of 78.

Hebertshausen – He called himself Paparazzo von Hebertshausen, and the rogue flashed in his eyes.

We'll never see that wink again.

Klaus Rabl, our employee from Hebertshausen, died on Monday at the age of 78.

We, the editorial staff of the Dachauer Nachrichten, mourn not only the loss of an extremely committed and reliable colleague, but also a kind-hearted person whom we have taken dearly to our hearts.

The frenzied reporter: Klaus Rabl worked with passion for the Dachauer Nachrichten

In 2004, Klaus Rabl retired after 43 years at Sparkasse Dachau – and began working for Dachauer Nachrichten.

"I've always planned to do something when I'm at home.

I didn't want to get on my wife's nerves all day and lie lazily on the sofa," as Klaus Rabl explained.

From now on he was probably on the road more than before: on his moped – his helmet always dangling from the handlebars – he rode from one appointment to the next, reported on club anniversaries, municipal council meetings, birthdays, graduation ceremonies, meetings, school, kindergarten.

And in times when there wasn't that much to report - during the summer slump or the Corona lockdown - Klaus Rabl went on a search, always slung his camera over his shoulder, and got creative.

This is how it came about that the Amper Bridge became probably the most photographed building in the distribution area of ​​the Münchner Merkur during its new construction: Klaus Rabl documented every little construction progress in the local newspaper.

He always cared about "his community," his hometown of which he was so proud.

And the community of Hebertshausen thanked him: In March 2019, when Klaus Rabl celebrated his 75th birthday with his family, Mayor Richard Reischl surprised him, marched up with a brass band and had Hebertshausen entered in the community’s golden book, “out of gratitude for his commitment in the community, but above all for his consistently excellent reporting for the benefit of the Hebertshausen community".

Klaus Rabl was very touched and so excited "that I could hardly write my name anymore".

 I was so excited I almost couldn't write my name.

Klaus Rabl was more than just an employee, he was a fatherly friend to us

Before we, the editors, could really thank him for his commitment, Klaus Rabl closed his eyes forever.

When he introduced himself five years ago in a small article for a supplement to the Dachauer Nachrichten, he wrote: "Sometimes I unfortunately had to write about friends who have died.

It's not that easy then.” It's the same for us now.

Klaus Rabl was a fatherly friend to us.

We have learned a lot from him over the years.

That you shouldn't marry too early because you first have to get to know each other really well.

And that one should remain good in life – but not too good.

In all the years we have never seen him grumpy, bad-tempered or indignant.

On the contrary, he ended every phone call with a cheeky joke.

There wasn't a conversation with him that didn't make us smile.

He never wanted to put himself in the foreground.

Our thoughts are with his family

Klaus Rabl started a tradition: once a year he brought us a box of carnival donuts, but always left them at the entrance so that he didn't have to meet anyone who wanted to say thank you.

After the annual request that he come to the editorial office for advice next time, he always promised to improve.

And the next year the box was back at the entrance.

Above all, we think of his family: his wife Anneliese, his children Sebastian, Florian and Michael and the four grandchildren Lieselotte, Paul, Josefine and Moritz.
