Burton "Buddy" Klein, 80, of Bridgeport, passed away peacefully after a brief illness on Wednesday, June 25, 2014. He is survived by his children, Lenny Klein and his wife Jennifer of Fairfield, Lisa Klein Lebowitz and her husband Andy Lebowitz of Glastonbury, as well as his devoted sister, Laura Klein Amdur of Bridgeport. Buddy was also the proud "Pa" to his grandchildren; Sammy Klein, Lidia Klein, Shayna Lebowitz, and Zac Lebowitz. He is predeceased by the love of his life, Sharon Rich Klein. Buddy spent his entire life in the area and was known and loved by many for his jovial demeanor and his good-hearted nature. He became interested in his trade as a television technician while serving his country in the communications room on a Navy submarine during the Korean War. After he returned home from his service he was employed for many years by the RCA Service Company in Norwalk. One of Buddy's passions in life was baseball, especially his beloved Yankees. During the summer months his transistor radio was never far from his side so he could listen to "the game." He would happily discuss the Yankees with anyone he came across in his travels. Graveside services will be held TODAY at 3:30 pm at the Ahavath Achim Cemetery, 250 Reid Street, Fairfield, CT. Family will receive visitors immediately following the service at the home of Jennifer and Lenny Klein. Donations in Buddy's memory may be made to the Jewish Home, www.jhe.org.
