Chris Lloyd Kluever, 68, passed away June 23, 2019 from diabetes complications. He was born and raised in Atlantic, Iowa.
After earning his business administration degree from the University of Iowa, he moved to Minneapolis and began working for Arrow Shirt Company; he eventually moved to Billings where he began a long career working for Levi Strauss & Co. He was very successful selling jeans in the western territory and it was here that he met Terre Selleck, who was at that time working for a western clothing store. They were married in Atlantic, Iowa on December 26, 1982.
Chris and Terre spent 36 years leading full and rich lives with family and friends in work and play. He lived life with gusto and a joyful heart. Chris was a social guy; his two passions were meeting people and talking. His full and hearty laugh made all near him laugh too. He never knew a stranger, had a big heart, a big voice, loved coffee talk and never hesitated to talk to anyone, anywhere.
Chris was preceded in death by his parents Lester and Gwyn, brother Dando, and sister Lora Leonard. He is survived by his wife, Terre, his sister Jerri Harding (Randy), brother-in-law Brad Leonard, daughter Rhonda (Kory) Thomson and children Kyhler and Kailey; step-son Jeff (Cindy) Kern and children Kady (Joey) Schell, Lukas, and Emaleigh Kern; sister-in-law Susan Little, brother-in-law Tom Selleck, nephew Randy Burrington, and 4 great grandchildren and long-time friends Fred, Aileen, Johnny A., Bill, Eddie, Susie, Jerry G, Arvid, Ruth and many more.
He will be greatly missed by all.
