Edward L. Klopfer
Edward L. Klopfer, DDS, MScD of Hollis, NH died suddenly from cardiac failure on December 3, 2016. He was born on March 4, 1944 to Florence & Julius Klopfer, in Mineola, NY. After graduating from Colgate University with honors, he went on to study dentistry at New York University where he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree. Upon receiving his dental degree, he served in the US Air Force as a Captain and Dentist. Following his years of service, he took his Residency in Orthodontics at Boston University where he also earned his Masters Degree in Orthodontics. While establishing his practice in Milford, NH, he also taught Orthodontics at Boston University for ten years. Dr. Klopfer loved being an orthodontist and was adored by his patients. It was not uncommon for him to make house calls by boat on Lake Winnipesaukee while he was vacationing at his camp in the area or to be seen cheering on his patients at their sporting events. He was particularly privileged to have had the opportunity to treat three generations of many families.
People were drawn to Ed, and Ed was drawn to people. In 1978 he met and fell in love with the love of his life, Roberta (Ricki) Schwartz. Soon after, they were married and started their family. He developed strong personal relationships wherever he went. He had a great sense of humor, was always smiling and only saw the good in people. He enjoyed living and was grateful for every day on this earth. "We are so lucky," was a catch phrase he often spoke with sincerity. Ed was an avid Red Sox fan, loved to play golf, but most of all relished being with friends and family. Ed was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, son, cousin and friend. Ed is survived by his loving family, including his wife, Ricki, his daughter Sarah, his son and daughter-in-law Andrew and Laura Klopfer, two adoring grandsons, Jacob & Daniel, brother and sister-in-law, Michael and Fredda Klopfer, nieces and nephews Heidi and Joel Sisenwine and Eric and Rachel Klopfer.
