Paul A. Kleinstuber
Victor – Paul passed away peacefully August 26, 2021, at Serenity House in Victor.
He was born April 23, 1938, to Olive and Ross Kleinstuber, and grew up on the family farm in Milford, PA. At age 19, after graduating from Penn State, he joined Haloid (later Xerox) as a materials engineer where he was instrumental in the design of the 914 (the first commercial Xerox copier). He along with other members of the team were inducted into the Smithsonian Institution for their contribution to American culture.
He was a life long Yankees fan, avid golfer, antique enthusiast (especially tools), a wonderful story teller with a sense of humor and quick with a pun. He enjoyed the wonders of nature while hiking, camping and fishing. He loved animals and watching the wildlife from his deck at his lake home in his later years.
Paul was a kind, dignified, caring person who volunteered many hours of service to various local organizations including helping out during his retirement years at Lollipop Farm, Advent House, Sonnenberg Gardens, and the Fairport Tool Thrift Shop.
Paul is survived by his life partner, Suzanne Lasher; his daughters Beth Kleinstuber and Dena (Ted) Condron); grandchildren D. J. Lindsay (Alyson), and Michelle Franco; great-grandchildren Kyle, Evelyn, Aiden, Jase and Madelyn; his brother Rev. David (Maggie) Kleinstuber; nephews and nieces Ann, John and Dona; and grand-nephew Jerry; as well as many dear friends and extended families. He was dearly loved and will be deeply missed. Paul reminds his fellow golfers, “14 clubs, max”.
Calling hours will be held, from 4 to 6 pm on Friday, September 10, at Jarmusz Cotton Funeral Home, 26 Maple Avenue, Victor, NY. All those attending are asked to wear a mask. Donation’s in Paul’s name may be made to a charity of your choice.
