Services are Oct. 30 for Klaus Glaser, 68

FORT DAVIS - Klaus Jurgen Glaser, 68 of Fort Davis, died Oct. 11, 2015. Born Jan. 28, 1947, throughout his life Klaus Glaser tenaciously navigated the road less traveled. He was born in Frankfurt, Germany, in 1947 to American parents serving with the US Army after WWII. He was adopted at birth by a Polish couple who had been interned in Nazi concentration camps and could no longer have children. His childhood was strongly influenced by the traumatic experiences his parents endured. His father schooled him in protecting himself from potential Nazi resurgence by giving him the the unchildlike challenge of escaping Germany through the Swiss Alps to retrieve a gun from a safe deposit box in a Swiss bank when he was 12 years old. His parents' experiences and training shaped his actions for the rest of his life. He attended boarding school in St. Gallen, Switzerland and college in Frankfurt. The compulsory German draft put him in the German army for two years.
