Mr. Klayman was my high school English teacher for the 11th and 12th grades at HWRHS. I'll always remember his brightly colored sweaters, but much more important was his excellent taste in books. Thank you for introducing me to so many great writers -- Paul Theroux, Graham Greene, and even the Agatha Christie mystery "Murder on the Orient Express," which he assigned over Christmas vacation one year. Thank you for instilling a lifelong love of reading!
I am so sad to hear of your passing. I found this online when I tried to check your number because I was nervous when you didn't reply to my emails. Arny was hard working, funny, and caring. I will always remember the impact you had on me. Kathleen Hegarty Follis
Attending the "classic movies" at Merrimack College just isn't the same without Arny and his pre-talk. He always offered such interesting facts along with his sense of humor. He is truly missed.
Arny, I'm heart-broken to learn of your passing. Too soon. Too soon. Graduate school. Dinners in RI with friends. My wedding. And just this summer e-mails that made me so happy. I remember you as brilliant, funny, kind. A dear, dear friend--always there for me. Love--until we meet again.
May your memories of the wonderful times you shared with your loved one comfort you and your family, today and always.
Arnie,, having you as a next door neighbor as I was growing up was a wonderful experience. I've often thought of the times you and Pat babysat me, the trip to the "paper house" in Rockport the pewter museum in Marlboro ( and your joke about it being the only city in Massachusetts with a filter tip) and making ice cream in your kitchen. Any way , I'm sorry that I won't be able to make it to your services, but I'll be forever grateful for the couple of opportunities I had to catch up with you over the last year. Rest In Peace neighbor, and it was a great privilege to have known you.
