KLOIBER - John F. Age 90, of East Aurora passed away peacefully on Monday, April 18, 2011 at his home. Born July 8, 1920 in West Seneca, NY, he was the son of the late Ferdinand and Hermoine (Grieiner) Kloiber. John retired from the American Malting Co. in Buffalo after many years of loyal service. After his retirement John stayed very active (as he would have it no other way). He served as Vice-President of the Colden Seniors for many years, was very active with Immaculate Conception Church in East Aurora as an Usher and Greeter as well as being a member of the Holy Names Society. His daily routine consisted of starting the day at Burger King with a group of friends better known as "The Romeo Club" short for Retired Old Men Eat Out. John was a very loyal family man and was always there regardless of the circumstances. He was a very talented gardener and even had his own Greenhouse at his home. There John would grow everything from lettuce to lilies. John was also quite the chef especially when the ingredients came from his own garden. He would always give away his produce to his friends and family. John always put others ahead of himself and brought a smile to everyone's face as soon as he entered a room. Besides his parents, John is predeceased by his beloved wife, Ruth, who passed away in 2001; two brothers, Ferdinand (Helen) and Raymond Kloiber; one sister, Mary (William) Harris, and one nephew, Billy Harris. Survivors include his nieces and nephews David Kloiber, MaryAnn Davis, Gary Kloiber, Judy Calmes, Brian Kloiber, Bob "Robert" Kloiber and Debbie Dechert and his sister-in-law Florence Kloiber. John is also survived by several great nieces and nephews. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Wednesday, April 20, at 9:30 AM in Immaculate Conception Church, 510 Oakwood Ave. John's very good friend, Father Walt, will be co-officiating his funeral mass. Please assemble at church. Visitation will take place on Tuesday April 19 from 4-8 PM in the KENNETH HOWE FUNERAL HOME, 64 Maple Street. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in John's memory to Hospice of Buffalo. Online condolences at
