Kenneth "Brian" Klein

August 30, 1957 — May 2, 2024


Kenneth “Brian” Klein, of Montrose, Colorado, went to be with his Lord on May 2nd, 2024. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather “Papa”, brother, cousin and friend. Kenneth was fondly known as “Brian”. He was born to H. Daryl and Doris Klein on August 30th, 1957, in Morristown, NJ. Brian moved several times in childhood due to his father’s career as an engineer for Bell Laboratories. He lived in El Paso, TX, Las Cruces, NM near White Sands Missile Base (during the Cuban Missile Crisis), Jamestown, NC and finally Broomfield, CO. Brian graduated from Broomfield High in 1975. He completed two years at Colorado State University studying agronomy, having developed an interest in farming while working on his grandparents’ farm in Nunn, Colorado.

Brian worked in sales at Turner Automotive for 42 years and in construction for a number of years in between with family. He was a talented carpenter and devoted family man. He had the best corny “dad jokes”. When a bug hit the windshield on the highway- “Well it doesn’t have the guts to do that again,” or Brian’s favorite parting expression- “Glad you got to see me!”

His favorite person and best friend was his wife Joni Klein. They met on a blind date set up by her sister Peggy. They were married on September 1st, 1980. They remained happily married for 43 years. Whatever Joni wanted to do, Brian would support it. Brian held many titles in his life, but his favorite was being called “dad” or “papa”. He loved his people and was a devout Christian. He was kind, humble, quiet, strong and a man of his word. His favorite hobbies were golfing, watching the Denver Broncos, going to Disneyland and spending time with his family. 

Brian is survived by his wife Joni, sons Kenneth “Brison” and John “David”, daughters Christine and Brittany, and grandchildren Anyeri, Michelle, Merrich, Harmony and Antonio. He is also survived by his brother and sister-in-law, Bruce and Joy Klein, and numerous nieces and nephews.
