Dear Kleiner family
I was shocked and saddened to hear yesterday about Andy. Having not seen him for years, I remember what a cutie he was with his blonde hair and very brown eyes. Having been around him as a young child, I knew he was going to be a 'firecracker' personality. I have a picture of him and Jonathan Reed playing the old piano in the basement of the church on Huntoon. They must have been about 3-4. I will try to find it get it to you.
I am praying for your family. May the Lord bless and give you comfort during this time.
~ Darrel Loar - July 8, 2019

One winter evening my wife and I were at the movies on a date. When we returned home, we noticed all of our patio furnature was moved and sitting in the driveway. There was a strange light on our front porch. I pulled in cautiously and told my wife to stay in the truck as I check everything out. On our front porch was plastic poo that was wrapped in battery powered christmas lights. I inspected the house and when it was clear we went inside. Later on Facebook we saw a post of the Kleiner's posing on our porch with the lights.
My wife had surgury in the hospital and she was feeling down and out when in in came Andy with a long hair wig on and some balloons. Everyone was laughing.
Working with Andy was an inspiration. His work ethic is unmatched. He would always make everything a compitition that made it fun. We even had a hair grow out compitition!
It wasn't uncommon after a long night to see Andy dancing in the office when we turned up "insane in the membrane"!
No one was more willing to lend a hand when help was needed. We needed help moving a very heavy piano and Andy was the first one there to help. He also happily helped when we moved my mom after my dad died.
Andy was great at giving good advise and being there for people when they needed a friend.
To say that Andy impacted me is an understatement. He brighted up every room he entered. I can't even put into words how much he meant to me as a friend and brother.
I love you Andy Kleiner!

Ron and Debi,
My deepest sympathy for your loss.
~ STEVE CARVER - July 5, 2019
Dear Dr. Ron, Debi and all the family, I was so sorry to learn of your son's passing. My heart breaks for you -- I can't even imagine what you are going through right now. I don't take the paper anymore and was told there was a familiar name in the paper that I should read --- I was so shocked to see it was your son. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you right now and in the days ahead.
~ Kathleen Browne - July 5, 2019
I think Andy must have been about 3 when we started helping each other out with sitting, Debi. What a cute little guy with huge brown eyes. Remember the day I forgot about him coming and my Dad ended up watching him and Bran. My Dad had a great time and so did both boys. Prayers for you all.
~ Nancy Zbierski - July 5, 2019
Ron and Debi, sorry for the loss of your son. You and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers!!

I remember Kyle and I were together in theatre and became really close. One night we had our ITS banquet at seaman high school and me and kyle were “husband and wife” and that’s how he introduced me to his dad and he said is he at least treating you right and your stuck with him now and he always gave us crap about being “husband and wife”. He was easy to talk to and have a conversation with about anything. He always had a space for you when you need help or just having a bad day and need to rant. I’m so sorry for your loss, sending prayers.
~ Alya Crumpton - July 5, 2019
So sorry for your loss. Our thoughts are with you and your Family.
~ Ed & Karin Fennell - July 5, 2019
I have great memories of Andy being a person that was well liked and easy to converse with on a multitude of subjects. He also was a great leader of men and didn’t do anything in slack mode...it was always maximum effort. He was very generous with his time to others, had high moral standards and possessed a great sense of humor. I enjoyed every moment I shared with Andy and thank his entire family for sharing him with others.
~ Anthony Hampton - July 5, 2019
I have great memories of Andy being a person that was well liked and easy to converse with on a multitude of subjects. Instant friendship and brotherly love as soon as we met! He also was a great leader of men and didn’t do anything in slack mode...it was always maximum effort . Probably the most competitive guy I’ve ever met! He was very generous with his time to others, had high moral standards and possessed a great sense of humor. I enjoyed every moment I shared with Andy and thank his entire family for sharing him with others.

And he always had a smile or wave. Stopped and talked every every time he walked his puppies or drove his niece and nephew around in his fun little red hot rod. Simply a very nice person and he will be missed in the neighborhood most definitely.

Our hearts are broken. My heart is broken. Just a few weeks ago we were all together celebrating mom and dad’s 50th wedding anniversary. You and I, standing on the front porch talking about random things before everyone else showed up. If I would have known that was the last time I was going to talk with you, I would have told you how much you mean to me, how much I love you, and I would have given you a hug that would have lasted a lifetime.
I miss you brother
I love you Andy
My you be in peace in the arms of Our Father!

From the moment I moved in across the street we became instant friends. Andy was always there to help in a minutes notice. He always liked the treats that I made them. Need less to say I loved the whole family. Andy will always have a place in my heart. As will Tina, Kyle and Kylie. Deepest sympathy and love to all.
~ JACKIE Stansell - July 4, 2019
I dont even know where to begin. This man who I am so proud to call one of the best friends I have ever had was an amazing person. Andy would do anything for anyone that needed any kind of help. I've witnessed so so many times him taking care of people and doing things for them just because he seen they needed help. Things I've seen so many people turn and look the other way, Andy would make a U-Turn to go help. One day we were mowing and an elderly woman walked past the house but seemed confused or lost. She walked down to a busy street about two blocks away. As Andy watched her start to step out to the busy street he took off running at a sprint and didnt slow down until he got to her. Turns out she was lost and couldnt figure out how to get home, so of course he was able to figure out where she lived and took her back home. Andy loved people and loved to make peoples' lives easier. We spent so many hours together at work, I believe it was 15 years together all week long then we would go do lawn care together on the weekends. He would see all the nice lawns that we would take care of and the second we were done he wanted to go get lawn supplies to get his yard looking that good. Boy did he try and try. Man did we laugh and have so much fun together. One of the hardest working men I have ever met. He loved taking his kids to "walk the trax" to look for bones. He loved telling me about what he had planned with his Family. Andy, Kyle, and Kalie ding dong ditched me and my Family. He and Kyle thought it was so funny. Of course we ding dong ditched them back but turns out they werent home so of course he would make fun of me for that. He would play a prank on a co-worker (Jim) in the office. Andy would come to work just a little early to beat Jim to the office so he could crawl under his desk and unplug his phone, then when Jim came in Andy would sit and try not to laugh as Jim was blaming the day shift for messing with him everyday as he crawled under his desk to plug it back in. One time when we were out mowing together with Phil, the rake accidentally was under some other tools. Phil was upset and was saying "who buried the rake". So guess what, yep everytime the rake was in the truck Andy would bury it just to hear Phil. He thought it was so funny. Andy absolutely loved to have fun and enjoyed every minute to the fullest. I could tell a thousand stories about my friend Andy but the one thing I will remember the most about Andy is the love he had for his Family. I see and feel you in every single thing around me. Every joke and every kind act I see I will be reminded of this man.
You will be missed by so many!
May you now rest in peace my dear friend!
~ Joe Katsbulas - July 4, 2019
Dear Kleiner Family,
I was one of Andy’s elementary teachers at Pleasant Hill. Andy was a lovely mix of ornery and respectfulness. As I read the memories others have shared it is obvious that didn’t change.
It is always nice to run into former students out and about. My life has crossed paths with Andy and members of his family on numerous occasions over the years. There are families that I will never forget and the Kleiner family is one of those special families.
I am very sorry and deeply saddened to learn about Andy. Blessings to all of you.
Fondly, Kyle Hicks
~ Kyle Hicks - July 4, 2019
I don’t know where to begin. Being the youngest cousin & having such an age gap between myself & everyone else, but I do remember all the Christmas’s that our families used to do at Grandma & Grandpa Houchins’s. The crazy stuff your dad would make for my mom esp the mouse feet earrings & everyone's reaction to her opening that wonderful present. I remember you’d actually play games with me till I got bored or you beat me too many times & I’d just give up. I remember the first time you brought Tina to the whole family get together & how you were just so happy & grounded. Heck I was also happy cause I wasn’t the shortest one in the family anymore! (Sorry Tina)
I’m going to miss our weird random texts & you being the nicer brother & not calling me giggler or spaz like your brother Matt and let’s be honest Matt might have been the first one to start shaving the head bald, but out of you, Marshall, & Matt; you were & always will be the one to make it look good! Your laugh & smiles were infectious & every time I think about it I smile & laugh a little too. I’ll never be able to forget that. That and you always had this mischievous look on your face that’d make people wonder exactly what your next idea or plan was.
Till the next time I see you be ready for the biggest hug & some corny jokes & a random game of checkers cause I promise you I’ll beat you & Grandpa atleast once. I love you & will always carry these memories/moments with me...
Tina, Kyle, & Kalie
Uncle Ron, Aunt Debi & the rest of the clan I love you all & I am without a doubt so sorry for your loss. There’s not enough words to be able to express how much I’m feeling for you all. Praying for all of you thru this hard time that you may find peace & comfort.
~ Danielle Goettsch - July 4, 2019
My favorite memory of Andrew was always trying to teach him how to do Kalie and I’s whistle at her birthday dinners.
~ Adrianna Mena - July 4, 2019
One year for his birthday I wanted to surprise him and so before he came home, I was hiding in Kalie’s closet just in case he’d come upstairs. Kalie, along with a couple others, helped me get into a big box and tape it up. I remember after they carried my down stairs and gave the huge box to Andy, he was messing around with the box. Tipping it, spinning it, etc. with me in it. I was trying so hard not to laugh the whole time in the box to ruin the surprise. He eventually opened it to me throwing confetti at him. It made my heart so happy. Andy was like another father to me. He took Kalie and I to concerts, we went on rides in the buggy, he helped us make our own marshmallow shooters. I have so many good memories with him. He always knew how to make people laugh. I don’t think I’ve ever actually called him “Andy” because I always referred to him as “dad.” He will be missed so much and I have very much love for him and the Kleiner family.
~ Tyler Gudenkauf - July 4, 2019
i remember so many things from so many years of him kind of being like a second dad to me, but i think my favorite memory is just how he always treated me like his own. he was such a kind man and it makes me so sad. i’m gonna miss never calling him Baldy again. much love for the family and so many prayers
~ amilee brian - July 4, 2019
I am so sorry for your loss.
~ Carolyn Anderson - July 4, 2019
Our hearts are aching and breaking for all of the Kleiner family and friends of Andy. We are thinking about you and praying for you at this most difficult and unimaginable time. We Love You.
~ Bobby and Barbara Hill - July 4, 2019
He was always good to Skyler. It’s been right at a year that he taught Skyler to drive standard in his little red buggy. The smile he put on my sons face that day will always be a favorite memory of mine.
I’m so sorry for your heartbreak
~ Price Family - July 4, 2019
Andy was always so fun, kalie and I used to wait up in the summer at our sleepovers for him too get off work. Which was very early in the morning. when he would get home we almost always had something to show him. Andy was always so goofy as well, even When I accidentally hit him with a plastic gun and cut his eyebrow. You will be missed Andy.
~ Paige Stangl - July 4, 2019
Dear Kleiner family - We are so sorry to hear of your loss. When Mark told me on Tuesday when he heard the news, I cried. We had a lot of good times when we were still in Topeka at the Topeka Warehouse. I'm sure Mark would have lots of stories to tell about Andy....
We will keep you guys in our prayers. Hang on to all the great memories! The memories have helped our little town in Missouri deal with a situation like this.
~ Melissa and Mark Mitchell - July 4, 2019
My favorite memories were all of them, but if I had to pick one it would have be when Andy would ask Kalie and I if we wanted to go riding in the buggy and we would drive for hours at a time.
~ Aislinn Bouton - July 4, 2019
My favorite memory is of us fishing and going to the creek to look for turtles. Remember when we found the turtles and named them Mia & Stevie. It was funny when you chased Darby from the creek! I loved it when you made me ribs and when we made s’mores, even cucumber s’mores. I will always love you, Uncle Andy!!
~ Lauren Bryant - July 4, 2019
My heart is breaking for you, Andy's family, and everyone who knew and loved Andy. I will lift you in prayer often, asking for strength to support you at this most difficult and heartbreaking time. Much love, Donna
~ Donna Kready - July 4, 2019
I remember my dad always hung out with a lot of great friends and coworkers growing up, but you were one of the greatest. There was one time, when my husband was working nights, someone had tried to break into my house. I immediately called my dad, who called you since you lived closer to me. Within minutes, you were over my house with a bat, checking out the backyard ,and making sure I was ok, until my dad arrived. I was home alone with my baby, and I remember feeling so scared until you got there, and then I knew I was safe. You made sure I had your number , and reassured me that I could always call you if anything like this ever happened again. Thank you for making me feel safe when I was scared. Thank you for being a best friend to my dad. Thank you for being a great man. Rest In Peace.
~ Serena Fellers - July 4, 2019
I have so many memories with Andy, but here are a few.
Walking into their house and him saying as loud as he can, “What’s happeniiiiinnnngggg?!”
All of his dad jokes. Seriously, they were the best.
Him laughing so hard at things I would tell him that weren’t even that funny.
We ran through Walmart with the Harlem Shake on, SCREAMING it at the top of our lungs, and jumping up and down, because Andy told us to, and said he would take us.
He was always just so concerned for my well being. Every time I would come over, he would check on me.
We were sitting at Red Robin for Kalie’s birthday dinner, and we told Andy to say “Pickle Rick Whip.” Every time he said it, he said it wrong, obviously on purpose. I have a video of him saying “Pickle Rip Whip.” In the video, he whips, then puts up a peace sign.
He would get jokingly mad when I would acknowledge Tina before him.
Andy was such a fun, goofy, loving guy. I am so grateful I was able to know him. My thoughts and prayers go to my best friend and her amazing family. I’ll miss you Andy. Love you so much. Thank you for all the great memories. Fly high up there.

Dear Kleiner Family: We have so many memories with you I don’t know where to start. Our boys Loved to spend New Year’s Eve with you so they could bang pans and march around outside and midnight. I remember years of Scouts and Bowling with Andy, and the trip Ed took them to Disneyland and Las Vegas. They all came home singing Elvira ??. Just know we are keeping all of you in prayer and may the years of memories comfort you in the coming days until you see Andy again. Our hearts are sad with and for you all. Love & prayers, Judy, Ed and all the Clutchey Family.
~ Judy Clutchey - July 4, 2019
I remember when we went to the falls and Kyle and I kept making fun of you, and called you a baby because you hit your head on a rock. You hit it so hard that you could literally see your bone and you played along with us.
You always took me into the creek by our house. Always catching Crawdads, frogs, tadpoles, etc. you’d take us to show it around the neighborhood.
You are the first man that I have loved. It will always stay that way. You showed me love for the first time. I miss you dearly. You always told me your best friend.. you were mine, too. Forever my best friend. I love you, dad.
~ Kalie Kleiner - July 4, 2019
My deepest condolences to the family at this time in your life. Andy was a great guy to know always smiling.
~ Angela Honafius - July 4, 2019
Going to miss making each other laugh everyday. You joking around about me only working "4 hours" a day will always stick with me. Great guy. Great loss. RIP Andy. Condolences to your family.

Kyle, Kalie and Tina-
We love you. I wish there is more I can say or do. We have really enjoyed standing by your side while the kids went through school together. Our hearts are saddened, and our prayers are being lifted.
~ Jodi Sturgeon - July 3, 2019
I remember Andy as a kindergartner-4th grader with my son Chris. They would go out into the woods behind our house looking for animal bones and it never failed, Andy would find a choice skull of some kind. He was known as he bone guy at Scouts. Always loved his smile. Please accept my sincere sympathies for the loss of your husband, son, father, brother, friend. You are all in my prayers as you grieve this great tragedy. The Lord is with you every moment, will lift you up from this present darkness and will heal your hearts if you allow Him to. Lean on Him. Only He can bring you though this terrible time in your lives. Believe me, I know this as I'm living proof.
Debi, if you need ANYTHING or just someone to talk to, you know I'm here for you! Hugs!
