Myles Edward KalthoffMarch 15, 1955 ~ April 24, 2017 (age 62)
The death of Myles Edward Kalthoff, 62 years of Humboldt, occurred on Monday, April 24, 2017 at Humboldt District Hospital. Myles was born on March 15, 1955 at home on the farm to Sylvester and Lydia (nee Engele) Kalthoff. He grew up on the farm, attending Epson and then Fulda Schools. His dad passed away when he was young and he began helping with the farm work. Myles met Sherry Lang from Middle Lake and he knew right away that she was “the one” for him. They were married on February 15, 1975 and settled into a life of farming. For many years, during the winter months, Myles worked as a mechanic for Picouye Service and Quality RV. He really enjoyed racing snowmobiles for Picouye Service and he and Sherry spent many hours snowmobiling with friends all around the province. They were blessed with three sons, who kept them very busy with their many activities. Myles and Sherry ran a grain farm and then from 1988 to 2009, because of Myles’ love of cattle they added a herd to their farm. He also enjoyed his annual moose hunting trips to Mistatim and camping and fishing at Big River. Over the years, Myles and Sherry were able to take a number of warm winter holidays to various destinations. They loved spending time with their boys and their grandchildren. On July 1, 2008, Myles changed his address for the first time in his life, moving from the farm, where he was born and raised, in to Humboldt. He continued to farm from town with his son, Kirby until a couple of years ago. Sadly, on January 15, 2015 Sherry passed away. Losing the love of his life was very hard on Myles and his health slowly deteriorated over the last two years. Myles will be lovingly remembered by his three sons and four grandchildren: Brendan (Amy) Kalthoff of Humboldt and daughters Delaney and Kaybri, Kirby Kalthoff of Fulda and son Dylan, and Kyle (Cori-Lynn) Kalthoff of Humboldt and son Kenneth; one sister and two brothers: Karen (Ralph) Fleischhacker and Wayne Kalthoff, all of Humboldt, and Neil (Maryanne) Kalthoff of Wakaw; sisters-and-brothers-in-law: Jeannette (Donald) Hoffman of Middle Lake, and Arlene (Cliff) Wedewer and Doug Wedewer, all of Cudworth; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his wife, Sherry Kalthoff (Jan. 15, 2015); daughter, Holly Kalthoff (Dec. 6, 1985); parents, Sylvester Kalthoff, Lydia Kloppenberg and Henry Kloppenberg; parents-in-law, Adolf and Alice Lang; and sisters-in-law, Caroline Kalthoff and Brenda Wedewer. The Funeral Mass for Myles was held on Friday, April 28, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. at St. Augustine Roman Catholic Church, Humboldt, celebrated by Fr. Greg Smith-Windsor. Interment followed in St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Cemetery, Fulda.
