Steve Klein, 1949-2016

Steve Klein, a valued member of the HVRA Board and NW Area Rep since 2009, died on Sept. 25, 2016, following a long struggle with lymphoma.

Steve applied his professional expertise to many HVRA activities. He liked to get things done, among them organizing the PumpkinFest, running an online silent auction, rethinking our website, and helping revise the Board structure. The new website was launched a few weeks ago, and the proposed Amendments to the Constitution also show his hand.  Last year he ran our first online silent auction. Over the past 10 months he helped us rethink our website. The new version was launched a few weeks ago. We will miss Steve’s vision, his acute good sense, and his hard work on behalf of HVRA. We mourn his passing, and wish his family solace.

Steve Klein’s funeral will be held at Benjamin’s Park Memorial Chapel,  2401 Steeles Ave. West, on Tues. 27 Sept. at 11:30 am. His shiva will be held through the week at 65 Stuart Ave. Details, directions, chosen charities and a link to a Memorial Book are available online.
