                                   Rest In Peace Karl

Karl Dale Kleppinger Jr. - from Natchez, Mississippi - was 38 years old on the 20th of April, 2010.  He and his wife, Tracy, had a son, Aaron.
It is believed that Karl died while working in the mud pit, where drilling materials are handled, or in a nearby shaker room.
For anyone wishing to donate in memory of Karl, the Kleppinger family asks that such donations be made to the Natchez Humane Society.  According to the condolences/donations page, at Transocean, "Karl and his wife adopted all of their animals" from this organization.
Donations should be sent to this address:
Natchez Humane Society
"In Remembrance of Karl Kleppinger, Jr."

Natchez, MS 39120
(601) 442-4001
