Robert "Bob" Kleine - St. James

Robert George Kleine, 72, of St. James Plantation formerly of Sudbury, Massachusetts, passed away on April 3, 2013 at the New Hanover Regional Medical Center surrounded by his family.

Mr. Kleine was born September 18, 1940 in Chicago, Illinois, son of the late George and Agatha Kleine. He graduated from Carroll College with a Bachelor of Science degree and from Illinois Institute of Technology with an Electrical Engineering degree. He received his MBA from Stanford University.

He is survived by Suzanne, his wife of 51 years, his four daughters Laura, Lisa, Amy, and Julie, their spouses, twelve grandchildren and his brother and sister in law, Richard and Virginia Kleine.

His career as an executive in the computer industry spanned thirty years, culminating with the acquisition of his own telecommunications company in the early 1990s.

Bob divided his time between St. James and Balch Lake in Maine. He enjoyed golfing, woodworking, being outdoors, lake life, boating and fishing. He was a member of the Hackers golf club. Bobís beautiful handmade Adirondack chairs grace his North Carolina and Maine homes and he loved nothing more than sitting in his chairs, viewing the water and visiting with family and friends. He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend who was sought out for his sage advice and ability to listen well. He will be missed by all who were touched by his presence.

A private memorial service will be held in Southport, NC.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made in memory of Bob to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Donor Services, P.O. Box 4072, Pittsfield, MA 01202 or NHRMC (New Hanover Regional Medical Center) Foundation, 2259 South 17th Street, Wilmington, NC 28401.
