Vincent Robert Kleyla
Vin Kleyla influenced my life more than any person other than my parents. From New Jersey, Vin came to Holland, Michigan, to attend Hope College. He married a local woman at Hope, got a job with Herman Miller, and was assigned a sales territory in Columbus, Ohio. The younger sister of his wife, having completed two years of junior college, visited her sister, now married and living in Columbus. Having family in a city with a large university with a respected music department led the young woman to apply for and be accepted to OSU. I was in dental school at OSU in the autumn of 1967 when I met Vincent's sister-in-law. My future wife and I were often invited for dinner and we occasionally would babysit for Vin's and Lois's two (at the time) children ("Little Vin" and "Timmy,") preparing for our own family. We were privileged to enjoy the wonderful ability Vince had to tell hilarious, inappropriate stories with the corresponding accents. Shortly after Rosemary and I married, Vince and Lois moved back to Michigan. Eventually we each divorced and drifted apart. But because of Vince Kleyla I received a wife, children, grandchildren, fabulous in-laws, and eventually a home and dental practice in Holland.

Although many years have passed, I worked with Vince in the 1970s at Westinghouse. His positive energy and humor lifted everyone in the office. RIP.

I knew Vince from working with him at Allsteel. I can still hear that great laugh. Shared many conversations and my son kept me up on how he was doing. My condolences to the family. Michelle will be keeping you in my prayers.
