Obituary for Russel J. Kleabir

Russel J. Kleabir passed away peacefully in the morning hours of Friday, March 11, 2022, surrounded by his family in his Milford, Michigan home, or as he called it "the castle on the hill". He was 65 years old.

Russ was born on July 16, 1956 at Palmer Hospital in Detroit, to the late Ronald and Dortha Kleabir. He met the love of his life, Linda in 3rd grade and started out as just friends. They ended up marrying on September 20, 1975 and shared 46 years of marriage, 4 kids and 11 grandkids. Russ spent his working years as a butcher at Kroger and enjoyed many different hobbies like hunting, fishing, and other types of wildlife. He had some exotic pets like his alligator, pig, and geese. He was a music and history lover, and built many model planes and boats.

He was just a kid at heart, never wanting to grow up. Most of all he truly loved his family and enjoyed spending time together. Making memories and leaving a lasting impression were important to him. He will be greatly missed.

Russel is survived by his loving wife of 46 years, Linda; his children, Russel (Jackie) Kleabir Jr., Ryan (Ann) Kleabir, Renee (James) Stutts and Dawn Kleabir; grandchildren, Aryian, Charlice, Emma, Natalie, Anna, Ava, Alivia, Jase, Hayden, Tinley and Nixon; siblings, Randy Kleabir, Karen Compton, Ronnie Kleabir, Richard Kleabir and Robert Kleabir as well as many close friends and extended family members.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Ronald and Dortha Kleabir.

Visitation will take place at Lynch and Sons, 404 E. Liberty St., Milford 48381 on Tuesday, March 15, 2022 from 1:30PM - 4:00PM.
