Obituary for Paul Kleis

Paul Mark Kleis passed away unexpectedly at his home in early December; he was 64 years old. He was a lifelong resident of Kalamazoo, born on September 22, 1953, the son of Paul Maynard and Lois (Rameau) Kleis. He graduated from Kalamazoo Central High School and attended KVCC.
Mark was gifted with an entrepreneurial spirit who built his own home and started two businesses, Precision Volvo and West Michigan Central Vacuum. He was known by word of mouth for helping out friends with their car needs and for his quality craftsmanship designing and installing central vacuum systems. Mark enjoyed the outdoors, going for long walks and twice backpacked through Yosemite’s high sierra with family and friends. Mark’s most lasting legacy may be the loving and gentle care his mother appreciated and spoke so often of as he faithfully brought her to church, took her shopping and joined her in social gatherings.
Mark was preceded in death by both his parents and his brother Timothy Kleis. He is survived by sisters Rebecca (John) Wruble of Renton, WA, Julie (Keith) Bramer of San Jose, CA, brother Thomas (Michelle) Kleis of Kalamazoo, sister-in-law Judy Kleis of Richland, aunt Glennyce (Ivan) Moerman of Kalamazoo, and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
A memorial service will be held at 11:00 am on Thursday, January 11th at Second Reformed Church, 2323 Stadium Drive. Friends may meet the family one hour prior to the service at the church.
