Allan S. Klausky, 68, passed away May 30, 2017, at Daytona Beach, Fla., after a brief illness. He was born in Taunton, Mass., March 31, 1949, the son of Miriam H. and Joseph L. Klausky.
Allan, better known as Bull or Bully, traveled to Daytona Beach every year for 40 years to attend the Bike Week activities and to visit family and friends. He worked at a number of area businesses including Grindle’s Store, Southwest Harbor Motor Co., as an insurance agent, Carl’s Exxon in Northeast Harbor, Ellis Boat, Wilbur Yachts and Austin Ward’s Garage. His favorite job, by far, was selling antiques and treasures to the tourists out of Gary Mitchell’s shop, a couple days each week.
While in high school, and later, he was a bass guitarist with a local group known as The Marauders. He continued playing with various local groups until just recently.
His other interests included motorcycles, hunting, and collecting. Bully never saw an item that didn’t need collecting. He also enjoyed rebuilding old British cars. We will sadly miss seeing him puttering around in his Morris Minot.
Allan is survived by his brother Joseph L. Klausky, and wife, Anne M. Klausky, nephews Robert Klausky and wife, Kathleen, of Ellsworth, David Klausky and wife, Diane, of Manset, Matt Klausky and wife, Kelly, of Port Orange, Fla., and Adam Klausky of Daytona Beach, Fla.; nieces Karen Klausky of Manset, Pamela Klausky of Las Vegas, Nev., and Melanie Phillips of Daytona Beach, Fla.: sister-in-law Sheila Klausky of Manset, Grace Klausky of Milbridge; cousins Janelle Trowbridge of Daytona Beach, Fla., Jonathan Trowbridge of Edgewater, Fla.; great nephews Cameron Klausky, James Klausky; great-niece Paige Klausky.
A service and celebration of life are planned at 2 p.m. on July 22, at 55 Hillcrest Circle, Southwest Harbor.
