Yes. Add option -n to the ssh command. The standard input coming from the pipe becomes the standard input of the remote command (this is the way ssh works) and when the ssh command terminates it sends a SIGTTIN signal to the local shell: it closes the standard input and causes the loop to exit. The -n option redirects the standard input from /dev/null, leaving the stdin of the local shell untouched. Hope this helps.
