Clifford Grant Kleist, 82, of Monaca, PA was reunited with his Honey of 60 years on Monday morning, January 18th, 2021. She left before him just 26 days prior and was there to welcome him into the gates of Heaven. As usual, he couldn’t be without her for very long.
Born November 30, 1938 in Aliquippa and raised in “The Bricks” neighborhood, he loved reminiscing with his sister about all of their old neighbors there and their warm childhood memories of parents and family.
Cliff was the kind of guy who would do anything for you. He always had a kind word to say or a joke to tell. He fiercely loved his family, always taking care of them and keeping them secure. And, most importantly, he loved his Lord Jesus Christ with all his heart. He was an active member of New Brighton Christian Assembly church.
Cliff was preceded in death by his father, Charles, his mother, Laura, his sister, Betty Wutter, and his dear wife, Annette. He is survived by his daughter Amy Reategui, daughter Lauren Kleist, granddaughter, April (Shawn) Marocco, granddaughter Amber (Jonnie) Schooley, grandson Miguel Reategui Jr., great-grandchildren Gavin & Landon Marocco and Jonnie & Aria Rose Schooley, and sister Audrey (Jake) Mutkus and several nieces and nephews.
Friends will be received on Sunday, January 24, 2021 from 2:00 to 4:00 and 6:00 to 8:00 pm in the SIMPSON FUNERAL & CREMATION SERVICES, 1119 WASHINGTON AVENUE, MONACA. Friends will also be received on Monday from 10:00 am until the time of service at 11:00 am in the New Brighton Christian Assembly, 1810 Valley Avenue, New Brighton. Entombment will follow in Sylvania Hills Memorial Park Mausoleum, Rochester, PA.
