On March 22, 2021 Howard “Chuck” Klein at the age of 99. Loving father of Darlene (Jerry) Gordon and Stanley (Paulette) Klein; devoted Pop Pop of Dr. Annie Gordon (Dr. Stephen Cohen), Jamie (Daniel) Altchek and Jacob Klein (Paige Putney); and great-grandchildren Ethan and Alexa Cohen and Jordan and Dylan Altchek.

He was predeceased by the love of his life, Marian (Helzner) Klein; his parents Nettie and Jacob Klein; and siblings Shirley Berger, Gertrude Caplan, Flora Keyes and Adele Kallins. He was also survived by many loving nieces, nephews and friends.

Chuck was a tremendous athlete his entire life, drafted by professional baseball as a teen, hitting winners down the alley on the tennis court into his late 80’s, and smacking wiffle ball line drives with his great-grandkids in his 90’s. He cut the rug to his favorite big band songs. He treasured his days at Camp Cody where he developed life-long friendships.  His grandkids and then great-grandkids were always excited to see him, and he loved the smiles he got from sneaking them pieces of candy, pulling silver dollars from their ears, drawing them beautiful pictures, and just being with them. His family was everything to him.

Services are private. Please omit flowers. Contributions in his memory may be sent to The Park School, 2425 Old Court Road, Baltimore, MD 21208.

Darlene, Jerry, Stanley, Paulette, and family,
I was so sorry to hear the loss of your beloved father, father-in-law, grandfather, and great grandfather, Howard. He was such a warm and friendly person to me. He always greeted me with open arms. In 1985 when Shelley and I bought at our townhouse, my late grandfather Ben Caplan told me that we needed to buy our bedroom furniture from Chuck , Marian and Stanley. Chuck was a wonderful person to deal with. I send my condolences to the whole family.

Darlene, Jerry and family,
While the parties Chuck and Marion hosted were fabulous, our more recent memories of Chuck are the ones that stand out. What we remember most is how he always had a big smile and a warm hug for us on surprise encounters out in the Stone Mill or Poulet. He and Perry seemed to share a special bond. It was amazing to us how independent he was well into his nineties. He was clearly a favorite everywhere he went and will be missed by anyone his life touched. What an example of a life well-lived. Our thoughts are with you now in your time of loss.

I’m so sorry to hear about “Fella”. I will always remember him coming in Eddies to shop and coming back to the Deli to see us girls.He was always bringing us stuff rather it be Flyers shirts or Shirts from Florida. He always held a special place in my heart. As the Gordon Family still does today. My thoughts and prayers are with you always. ((HUGS!))

Darlene, Jerry, Stanley, Paulette and Family,
I first met Chuck at Camp Cody when I was five years old. Chuck was a terrific basketball and baseball player plus tennis. I got to play with him when I was sixteen years old. What a great experience. Chuck first saw Marián eating at Nates and Leon’s Restaurant. He said, “I am going to marry that girl “ and he did. On his 90th birthday, I sent a jar of Smuckers jelly with Chuck’s picture to the Today Show. They told me to come back in 10 years when he is 100 years old. Our families went to each other’s simchas. I never saw him get mad. He was an icon. My brother and I stayed friends with Chuck until the end. 99 2/3years old. I will miss him. Sending my deepest condolences to the entire family.

Dear Darlene, Stanley, and families:
Uncle Chuck was always special. Chuck and Marian were always there for anyone who needed a helping hand. When I was a child, I would tag along to his Sunday morning softball games. He gave my first baseball glove. We spent many nights at Memorial Stadium watching the the O's. His 99 years were a life well live. Rest in peace Uncle.

Dear Klein family, we are saddened to hear of your loss. Cousin Chuck was a dear, dear man. He was always so kind, charming and generous. I admire how active he stayed even in his later years. I’ll always remember his and Marian’s parties fondly. They were a very glamorous couple, but not flashy. Just classic. This truly marks the end of an era. I will forever cherish my childhood memories with all of you. Love, Cousins Heather, Paul, Dylan, Zoe and Asher (grand/great grand children of Mel/Carolyn Schwartz/Anne-Marie Cumming)

Dear Stanley, Paulette, Darlene, Jerry, and families,
So sorry to hear about Howard “Chuck”’s passing
I have so many memories of Saturday night deli dinners with the entire Klein clan. It was always an open house with Marian holding court and welcoming one and all. Uncle Sidney was definitely one of my favorites. I have to also mention that even though I had moved south to Charlotte,Howard Chuck called in furniture favors for us. He told them that I was family, and we still have the beautiful dining room table and sofas we got with the “family discount “. He had a wonderful life, and he was truly a “good soul”

Dear Darlene, Jerry, Stanley, Paulette and extended cousins,
My mom and I were saddened to read of Uncle Chuck's passing. Last week I was reminding mom that his 100th birthday is this summer. I remember childhood visits to Garrison Farms Rd., Deerfield Rd. and Baurenwood Ave. for family gatherings with a fondness for your dad's silver dollar magic tricks! I wandered from a downtown field trip to visit him at Pollack-Blum in grade school and his furniture store in Owings Mills when I was in college. Great memories. I kept photos from Flora that I wish to share here- Howard together with all his sisters and their husbands at the marriage to your beautiful mother, on the glider at my grandparents' with baby Darlene, and a wallet snapshot. Please accept our prayers and condolences and may you find peace and comfort during this difficult time.
Much love,
Kenny Demski

Dear Darlene, Jerry, Stanley and family,
It wasn't that long ago when I saw Chuck shopping at the Giant and out with his Darlene and Jerry every Friday night at Joey Chiu's. He was the epitome of a true gentleman. From my early childhood at the Summit to selling John and I our furniture to being my Dad's friend, he was fun, kind and ageless. He's with his beloved Marianne. May your beautiful memories sustain you during this difficult time.

Dear Stan, Dar, Jerry and Family,
So sad to read of the passing of your dear Dad. Still handsome as ever! He was so kind and sweet to me when I knew him years ago. Over the years, I ran into him occasionally and he was so sweet, and shared such nice memories with me and beamed when he talked about all of you. He was a class act! One of a kind! May his memory be a blessing. Love to All!

We are so sorry for your loss. Growing up, Marc knew Chuck from Camp Cody, and I knew Chuck and Marian through my parents. Fast forward a few years, and we all knew each other as married couples. We carpooled to Park School with Darlene, and we were neighbors with Paulette, Stan and Jake on Chellis CT. The years have passed but the good memories are still here.

There are numerous adjectives to describe everyones friend, Chuck. He was loving, always greeting everyone with
his welcoming smile, agreeable, and sincerely caring to his family and friends. Before Chuck’s retirement, he would constantly treat his co-workers as equals. Darlene, Stanley, your spouses, children and are so fortunate to have had Dad in your lives for almost 100 years. Keep those joyful and memorable times deep in your hearts forever.

Dear Darlene, Jerry and family- We are so sorry to hear of Chuck’s passing. Both him and Marion were amazing people. They were extremely generous with their heart. Everyone that knew them loved them. At my father’s shiva in Florida they acted like everyone there was family to them. So loving. They will be missed but will remain in so many people’s hearts, especially their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Darlene, Stanley, and Family,
Growing up a Berger child meant that "Uncle Chuck" would be a family fixture and close neighbor. He always attended family parties, celebrations and fun gatherings. I have many old photos of him, your mother, and the Bergers. He, Stuart, Ira, and my mother Shirlee go back many, many years. Your father was a kind, loving, caring man, may he rest in peace. Beautiful memories will always be there for you and the people who knew and loved him.

David Andrew Cumming

Posted at 03:39pm
Some of my fondest childhood memories involved visiting Chuck and Marian Klein when we traveled north from Florida. They were the warmest, most kind folks to be around. They were always incredibly generous. I always felt really held, safe and nurtured when we visited. Chuck in particular always offered me the most hilarious stories about their lives. They both radiated warmth, and their relationship was always something I aspired to have when I was older. Chuck always had a youthful spirit, a side-splitting sense of humor. He was always incredibly present with me whenever we visited. I'm sad I cannot be there with you all to share memories of his life. Yet I'll be sure to visit once it's safe to do so. Take care and we love you all. - David and Sara

Dear Darlene and Stanley-
I was so sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. I can remember going with him to the Colts games. Your dad used to sneak Stanley into the games when he was little and Stanley would sit on his lap. This became a problem when Stanley got to be bigger than your dad. When I worked at the University of Maryland he asked me to get him a couple of Terps T-shirts (as though no store in Baltimore sold Terps T-shirts!) I was more than happy to. He will be missed.

Rob and Abbe Yospa

Posted at 10:34am
My dear dear Uncle Cluck, yes Uncle Cluck, that was what I used to call him. I remember the days when my father and mother, Laurette and Stuart Berger, were there with him and Aunt Marian. Rob and I know how difficult this time is now that both parents are gone. Know that they are up there with all their friends probably having a better time then we are. I know he was well loved down here but welcomed with open arms and love up there. Rob and I are sending our thoughts and prayers to the whole Klein family. May he rest in peace.

Dear Darlene, Jerry, Stanley, Paulette, and Families,

So sorry to hear this news. Chuck was a great guy and I will always remember going to Colts games with him and Stanley -- and parking in the main lot courtesy of Captain Keyes! He was also my batting coach. I was a good field/no hit type of player and my father called in Chuck to teach me how to hit. You were lucky to have had him for 99 years and I hope that gives you some comfort at this difficult time.

Chuck was such a favorite in our store. He would stop in, sometimes after

didnt need anything, but you mom said he did, she usually won the argument.
