KLINE: Martin “Marty” Kline, passed away on November 14, 2017, at the age of 64 years old. Marty was born in Pittsburgh on June 12, 1953, to Andrew Kline and Florine Kellman Kline Wolk, the youngest of three children. Marty was a very active member of Congregation Beth Shalom, a past Beth Shalom Men’s Club president, and a member of the Jewish Cemetery and Burial Association of Greater Pittsburgh. He worked as a building inspector with the city for 14 years before choosing to focus exclusively on rehabbing homes throughout the City of Pittsburgh. A passion of his for many years, he purchased his first property for $2,000 with his bar mitzvah money while a college student at Carnegie Mellon University. He continued to purchase properties throughout his life that other people wouldn’t look at, do all the work himself to make them beautiful and very livable, and keep them as affordable rental units. Marty was dedicated to improving his community and helping those in need, without thought to himself. Marty was a devoted husband to Judith Kline, his “bashert”, for more than 37 years, as well as a loving brother, son, husband and zeide (grandfather).
