Richard "Rick" Klein

March 13, 1961 — March 28, 2022

Richard “Rick” Wendell Klein, Jr., son of Richard Wendell, Sr. and Eleanor (Oots) Klein, was born March 13, 1961, in Oakland, California and departed this life March 28, 2022, at his home in Norwood, Missouri. He was 61 years of age.

After graduating high school Rick enlisted in the United States Marines in 1979. He was a helper and enjoyed helping people whenever he could. He was always just a phone call away, rather it was to loan you one of his many tools, or if you were needing a tow, he was ready and willing to help. He loved playing slots at the Norwood truck stop and you could find him there daily. He was also quite the storyteller, enjoyed working on his truck, fishing, camping and he especially enjoyed spending time with his family.

Rick married Evelyn Neeley on March 27, 2008 in Houston, Missouri, and she survives of the home. Also surviving are his children, Angelina Klein of Norwood, Missouri, Ryan Klein of Kansas City, Missouri, Brandon Lansdown of Norwood, Missouri and Austin Lansdown of Norwood, Missouri, three grandchildren, three brothers, Robert Klein of Independence, Missouri, Randy Klein of Peculiar, Missouri and Ronald Klein of Slater, Missouri, two sisters, Ruth Tiffany of Glendale, Oregon and Renee Klein Spencer of Warsaw, Missouri, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Besides his parents, Rick was preceded in death by two sisters, Rita and Roberta and a granddaughter.

There will be no services at this time. Cremation under the direction of Craig-Hurtt Funeral Home.
