            August E. “Gus” Klaysmat, 88, longtime resident of Hibbing died Tuesday, January 2, 2024, at Fairview Range Medical Center in Hibbing.  He was born January 14, 1935, to August and Gladys (Garski) Klaysmat in Hibbing.  He attended Hibbing schools and graduated from Hibbing High School.  August entered the Sacrament of Marriage with Shirley Novak on October 24, 1959, at the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Hibbing.  After marriage, he and Shirley moved out to Denver, CO, and later resided in Casper, WY, for 17 years before returning to Hibbing.  August was employed with Cleveland Cliffs as a Pit Foreman before retirement.  He was a member of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Hibbing.  He was an avid outdoorsman who loved to hunt and fish.  August enjoyed the boundary waters and took many fishing trips with his buddies to Crow Lake in Ontario during the summer and winter months.  August was known as your typical jokester.  His quick wit gave him the gift of many classic one-liners.
