KLOOSTER -  On January 5, 2018, Benjamin James Klooster, age 6, of Cutlerville, ran into the arms of Jesus, healthy and whole, after battling cancer for over three years.   He was welcomed there by his Grandma Carol (Vail) whom he never met in this life but can now play with for eternity. 

Ben held a large place in the hearts of many:  his parents, Peter and Amy Klooster; his little brother, Samuel; grandparents Fred and Lisa Vail and Mike and Denise Klooster; aunts, uncles and cousins Aaron and Kristin Klooster (Marielle and Anna), Rebekah and Shaefer Fraley (Cecelia, Simoni and Nora), Sara and Josh Campbell (Annie and Katie), Matt and TJ Vail (Maddie), Kevin and Allison VanHarn, Bryan VanHarn and Jodi Hoekstra, Kelli VanHarn and Omar Brown; great-grandparents Jim and Mary Haagsma, Greta Vail, Ben and Hilda Klooster, John and Sue Griffioen; a large extended family; classmates and teachers at Legacy Christian School; and many special friends. 

Visitation will be at Cook Funeral Home in Byron Center, 2067 -  84th St. SW from 1 to 3 and 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, January 11.  A celebration of Ben’s life will take place at 11 a.m. on Saturday, January 13, 2018, at Hillside Community Church, 1440 68th St., S.E., in Grand Rapids.
