June 1, 1957 – Montreal, Quebec
December 20, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta
Frank Kloiber, sadly, passed away peacefully on December 20, 2014 at Foothills Medical Centre.
He is survived by his loving wife, Brenda, his five children; Louise (Jeff and grandson Shae), Richard, Martin, Peter, Matthew and his brother, Reinhart.
A born leader and extremely personable, Frank had worked for Shell Canada Ltd. for eleven years before deciding to start up his own environmental consulting company- Amberg Corp. His company was the essence of who he was and the beliefs he taught his children were reflected in the twenty years of growing a once fledging business into the soaring eagle it now is and continues to be. To be leaders in whatever field you choose, that even when you are down in a hole a lot of hard work and perseverance will raise you to the top and beyond. Frank, a chemical engineer by profession, with a love of locomotives, decided to return to school to get his steam ticket so that he could drive the trains at Heritage Park when he was 56. This is a testament to the character that he was, that if you want something in this world you need to work to get it, and age is no excuse. He loved hunting big game animals and pheasants. He enjoyed working with his hands, and spending time with his family, especially outside on the front porch. He will be missed dearly by many.
