The owner and CEO of one of Cincinnati's oldest family-held bakeries has died. Kenneth Fuller Klosterman of the Klosterman Baking Company Inc. joined the family business in the late 1950s. The bakery traces its origins back to Germany in the 1800s. By 1892, it was established in the Cincinnati area.

Along with running the family business, Klosterman was also renowned as a magic collector. His favorite hobby was performing magic for almost anyone he met. He used his magic connections to benefit the community, producing the fundraiser ABRACADABRA at Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, which featured top magic talent in the industry.

Kenneth Klosterman was 87.
