Posted

Virgil Roman Klebba Sr., 79, of Lupton passed away the morning of Sept. 8, 2018, at Ascension Crittenton Hospital in Rochester.

He was born Aug. 6, 1939, in Sigel Township to the late John and Margie (Trepkowski) Klebba. He graduated from Harbor Beach High School and served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps for two years. He then went on to a successful, 30-plus year career in the construction industry before retiring in 2000. He loved the outdoors, living up “Nort” by the lake, pulling his grandkids on the tube behind his boat and beating both family and friends in a good game of cards.

He married the love of his life, Arlene Peyerk, in Rapson on Jan. 11, 1964, and throughout the years, would polka with her whenever he could. Virgil will be affectionately remembered by his wife of 54 years.

Virgil will be sadly missed by his four children, Virgil Jr. (Cathy), Julius (Shannon), Kimberly (Jeff) and Thomas (Donna); 14 grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; work friends, neighbors and hunting and fishing buddies. Virgil will also be remembered by his three sisters and two brothers, Mary (Steve), Martha, Grace (Dave), Donald and John Jr. (Brenda).

He was preceded in death by his sister, Bertha; and sister-in-law, Nancy.

Cremation has taken place, and a memorial Mass will be held in late September at a to-be-determined location in Port Huron.
