David Nathaniel Klein

David Nathaniel Klein, 30, of Harlem, Georgia, went to be with his Lord and Savior on December 31, 2022.

David was born October 14, 1992 in Brockton, MA. He attended St. Mary on the Hill School and Aquinas High School, graduating in 2011. David was active in Cub Scouts, earning his Webelos and Arrow of Light awards with the St. Mary on the Hill Pack. He staunchly supported Aquinas Football, and was an equipment manager for the team under the mentorship of his dear friend Coach James Leonard.

David loved God and his fellow man, and tried his best to serve them well in all things. He enjoyed camping, kayaking and the outdoors. He had a deep love of animals, and excelled in computers, electronics and all things mechanical. He loved Diesel engines, and could fix virtually anything. He built his own Information Technology company, Telzons, after graduation, installing and troubleshooting computer networks throughout the region. David’s sense of humor was legendary. To know him was to love him, and he enjoyed deep and close friendships with practically everyone who crossed his path, young and old, especially the Snead family.

He is survived by his parents, David S. Klein and Susan M. Klein, of Harlem, GA; his cherished partner and soulmate Carmela Malin of Columbia, SC; his sisters Heidi Hollister (William) of Swanzey, NH; Heather Caron, (Steve) of Lowell, MA; and Belinda Klein (Doug Goodwin) of Manchester, NH; his beloved aunts, Sr. Mary Mira, (Debra Klein), Missionaries of Charity, of Mauritius; Patricia Klein-Greene of Killingly, CT; Donna (Richard) Erdman, of Mashpee, MA; and Patricia Shea of Plymouth, MA; uncles Armand Piche of Nashua, NH and Daniel (Becky) Shea of Three Rivers, MA; dearest cousins Marc (Sabrina) Piche and Jonah Erdman; 10 nieces and nephews, and dozens of cousins on both sides of the extended Klein and Shea families in MA, CT, MD, NC, VA, TX and elsewhere.
