Mr. Kline was always a very pleasant man when I would encounter him while working as a secretary for St. Michaels Elementary School. He helped with the annual PTO Bingo fundraiser each year by making wood candle holders from local tree branches and donating them to the silent raffle. I send my condolences to his wife and son.

My deepest condolences to Moira, Sean and especially Jeff's mother Jackie. I started working for Jeff in 1996, soon after he established Kline Machinery. I learned a lot about the Machine Tool industry from Jeff, and will forever be grateful for that opportunity. I don't think any of us can know the extent of respect he had in the machining world. Although I moved on to a different employer in 2003, I always stayed in touch with Jeff every few weeks or so. Jeff always had a great sense of humor & good advice. I look back to him as not only a boss, but a friend and mentor. I am saddened by his passing, but will always be grateful for knowing this man. Kevin Bain

Jeff was my first employer. He became a lifelong friend. Jeff taught me many things about our industry but the most important thing he taught me in life was to make as many friends as you can, have as much fun as you can, and love everyone around you more each day. He and I shared a love of our chosen industry, food of ALL types, cars, real estate, and people who treat you with a mutual respect. Without Jeff’s help, guidance, and influence I would be nothing close to the man I am today. I will miss him terribly. My heartfelt condolences to his wonderful family.

Oh Moira, I am saddened to hear this. I remember when you hosted our tennis Holiday Party. Jeff cooked everything and waited on us hand and foot! One gift that was won in our gift exchange was the Yuletide log. We all envied it and then Jeff went and made one for all of us! I have it on my coffee table year round and will cherish it forever. What a special husband and father and friend. Thinking of you always.

Moira, Sean and family,
We are so sorry to hear of Jeff’s passing. He was truly special and had such charisma which immediately drew people to him and he was just such a fun, likeable guy. He will definitely be missed by all who knew him. We are so glad we got a chance to see him this summer in St. Michaels. Although we originally met him many years ago through business, we immediately formed a personal and lasting friendship that we will always cherish. May your memories help to see through the difficult days ahead.

First, let me send my deepest sympathy to Jackie, Moira, Sean, and the family. Jeff was one of the very best friends I ever had in my lifetime. We had a bond. I adored him. From Sunset Avenue to Clayton Avenue in younger years - here & there in between and then beyond. Love and peace to you, my forever friend. Until we meet again...

I was sorry to hear of Jeff's passing. I worked with him for over 4 years at Kline Machinery. It was my first job out of college and he was my first boss. He was very good to work for and always took care of his employees. He made the work place interesting and in many ways was like a dad to me. It was a great learning experience that helped shape my life and career.
