Kent Daniel Klueber, 76, Retired from Western Electric

Kent Daniel Klueber, 76, of Groveland, passed away Monday, June 11 at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Brighton.

He was born in Haverhill on May 20, 1942, the son of the late Joseph D. and Cecile (Dubois) Klueber.

Klueber was a graduate of Haverhill High School and was in the Army National Guard Reserves. He was employed at the former Western Electric from which he retired after 40 years.

Klueber was a resident of North Andover for many years and Groveland for the last 22 years.

He spent a great deal of time with his extended family and especially loved being “Papa” to his two grandchildren. He was an avid football fan and loved a great round of golf. He and his wife loved to travel and took numerous cruises, but most enjoyed time spent with his family on Cape Cod. Klueber was an incredibly social guy and made friends wherever he went.
