George Kline
Aug 3, 1959 - Aug 4, 2018
George Kline was born in Fullerton, CA on August 3, 1959 to parents George and Donna Kline. At the age of 59 George passed away in Turlock, CA. He enjoyed playing poker and watching football, especially the Oakland Raiders.
George is survived by his parents, his loving wife of 5 years Beatriz Kline; his children Ashley and Chris Brightwell of Ridgecrest, CA, and Chris and Latoyia Kline of Eureka, NV; his grandchildren Audrey Kline, Declan Brightwell, and Oliver Brightwell. He is also survived by his siblings: Cindy Kline, Terry Kline-Lasiter, Jerry Kline, Debbie Austin, Laurie Laran, Julie Kline, and Tony Kline. George was preceded in death by his brother David Kline.
George was loved, opinionated, and brash. He would make awkward situations more awkward. He loved to talk about the elephant in the room. He never hesitated to speak his mind, even when he shouldn't, and he would give you his two cents even if you wanted him to keep the change. George would always be heard because most of the time he was the loudest guy in the room, especially if he was watching the Raiders. He was also the life of the party. When he showed up, the laughs, classic rock, and memories came with him. He was completely unapologetic with how he lived. He was strong, fun, young at heart and full of life. George proved that age is just a number and that you are only as young as you feel. The only thing that was greater than the life he lived was the way he loved. He would be there for you no matter what, no questions asked. George was solid as a rock, steadfast, and true. He was the most devoted friend, son, cousin, brother, father, and husband. Those of us who were blessed enough to be a part of his life are better for it. He showed us how we should live but more importantly, he showed us how to love. Even though we will miss George every day, we will have him with us wherever we go. George, you were one of a kind. We Love You, Man!
