CALUMET — Leo Gruber, 46, of Calumet, passed away as a result of a fire at his residence on January 27, 2018.

He was born on June 7, 1971, a son of George and Nancy Gruber. He graduated from Lake Linden-Hubbell Schools. He worked as a residential painter.

Leo liked to fish and play the guitar. He loved his daughters and the outdoors more than anything and he had a witty sense of humor.

His daughter, Kelley says “Dad called me his flower and made me feel like a one-of-a-kind person. I will never forget his kindness he shared with those he loved most.”

He is survived by three daughters, Brandy (Jeremy) Hilss, Kelley Gruber and Hannah Gruber; and sisters, Billie Jo and Pattie Jo.

A Memorial Service is planned for the summer of 2018. The Pearce Funeral Home in Lake Linden is in charge of arrangements.
