Daryl was born on March 8, 1955 in Lowville, a son of the late Anthony Kloster Sr. and Muriel Pate Kloster Nuffer. He attended Beaver River Central School, and worked on the family farm, “Nuffer’s Farm”. He went to work for Glenn Laribee farm for over 10 years, before working on Tom Eaves farm for over 20 years, retiring in May 2021.
Daryl enjoyed life to the fullest. He was hard working and had a smile that was contagious. Daryl loved to work in his flower and vegetable garden (if the woodchucks would just stay out.) On rainy days, Daryl made Marge sit down and watch his western movies, he loved John Wayne and Clint Eastwood. He loved animals. You could find him out talking to his chickens and ducks most days. Since his retirement, Friday was his favorite day. He got donuts at Nolt’s Store. He enjoyed watching and playing with his grandkids in the pool and everyday activities. His favorite place to take mom to dinner was Chinese. Most nights you could find them taking a spin on the old gator-ade, (a/k/a gator), per mom’s request. Above all, Daryl loved his wife Marge and being in the woods, buzzing down trees.
