Cleo Marion Kuck

Cleo Marion Kuck, 57, of Benton City, WA passed away on November 28, 2006 at his home. His life’s passion was building custom cabinets. He lived in the Tri-Cities for the past 32 years and was the owner and businessman of C.M.K. Cabinets. He was a true artist of his kind – if you requested it, he would design and build not only what you asked for but something more beautiful and functional than you imagined.

Cleo was born May 4, 1949 in Caldwell, ID. He grew up there and graduated from nearby Middleton High School. He enjoyed fishing, camping and cooking.

He was always ready to help a friend. He could not turn away anyone who was in a bit of hard luck. His compassion did not stop with people – he could not turn away anyone of the four-legged variety either.

He is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, Corey M. and Jolene Rae Kuck, their two sons Justin and Mason, two brothers and two sisters, and his father, Lloyd D. Kuck, as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.

Memorial services will be held at 4:00 PM Sunday, December 3, 2006 at Einan’s Funeral Home, Richland. Visitation will be on Sunday from 12:00-3:00 PM, also at Einan’s.

  • Cleo was a very hard worker and absolutely loved his career building beautiful cabinets and furniture for many lucky people to have his work grace their homes and offices. He was a master craftman in all respects. The best memories of Cleo was the camping trips with his family. He loved being in the outdoors among the cool trees and rivers and always hated to have to leave. My condolences and prayers to all his family. Sincerely, Katherine

  • C K made cabinets, built in, and other furniture for several friends. I remember when Barbara Smith showed me his work. I was so impressed! That would have been in the mid nineties, and I have recommended him ever since. He was a true craftsman. He did beautiful work. I was saddened to read of his death. My condolences to the family.

  • Dear Cory, I know you probably don’t remember me. I lived across the street from your family in Pasco many years ago. I met your mom shortly after your sister passed away and your parents helped me tremendously in dealing with the loss of my Dad. Your Dad was a wonderful soul, kind, gentle and really just a big ol teddy bear. I’m so sorry for your loss Cory. My sincere condolences. Karen Johnson. RIP Cleo

  • Cleo was a master craftsperson. When we built our home Cleo designed and did all the cabinets. They remain the showpiece of our home today. He was a terrific to work with and we enjoyed him immensely as a person. Our sympathies to the family, Bill and Vicki Shaffer

  • Cleo had truely passed the design field to a wonderful craftsman.He built cabinets for us in three different homes along with his brother Stoney.You could see the love in his work and that is what seperated him from the rest. He taught Stoney well and we sincerely hope Stoney will carry on the tradition. Cleo will be greatly missed.
