Obituary

God brought home one of his shining stars. Fred Klein died peacefully at home, surrounded by his loving family (Shirley KleinMissy GaffneySteve Klein, and Jeff Klein).  We are blessed to know that his characteristics were passed on to his children and grandchildren (Jon Gaffney, Hannah Gaffney,Teagan, Kaela, Haley, and Na'ama). He was brilliant, intellectually inquisitive, had a great sense of humor, but most of all and under any circumstances, was calm, peaceful and one of the most gentle people. Fred was one of a kind and he will be greatly missed. Our lives have all been tremendously enriched by knowing him.
