Michael Henry Klein, 77, of Corpus Christi, Texas, passed away June 19, 2020, surrounded by his family. Michael was born in New York, New York on March 9, 1943. He graduated from Levittown Memorial High School and received his Bachelor’s Degree from Corpus Christi State University. Michael retired from the State of Texas after 26 years of dedicated service in Adult Protective Services. Michael also retired from the Coast Guard, after serving 34 years as a Reservist, including a deployment in response to 9/11. Michael was a member of the Corpus Christi Christian Fellowship where he came to accept Christ and proudly served on a mission to Israel. He loved to paint, build, and go on grand adventures. Michael was the best travel companion, looking for any reason to justify a trip to the wilds of Alaska or the mountains of Colorado. He had a passion for serving others and was excited for any opportunity to do so, with a special place in his heart for Habitat for Humanity projects. Michael was also passionate about social justice and civil rights issues. Michael was preceded in death by his parents, Barnett and Florence Klein and daughter, Katherine. He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Janie Klein and their children: Stella (Jay) Schuchardt, Michael M. Klein, and Kimberly (Augustine) Alaniz. They were blessed with four loving grandchildren: Adrian, Jeremiah, Magnolia and Gabriel. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 at Funeraria Del Angel-Everhart from 5pm-9pm.

I was very saddened to hear of Mike's passing. I met him when I worked as his administrative assistant in APS in 2005 and still kept in touch with him when I transferred to the state school where he conducted his investigations. He was one special and dedicated social worker. I never knew him to take a sick day ever. He was never ashamed to express his love and pride for his wife and children. So many good memories of him and of all his stories. I have to share that he provided me many quiet chuckles whenever I overhear him cursing at computers, printers, faxes and other ungodly contraptions that dare deny him cooperation. It was the only time he ever broke from his usual calm and cheerful nature. It was a privilege to come to his rescue during such times, and to serve him in the office. He had such a wealth of knowledge in his service to APS and he was regarded as the go to expert in his field. I miss him even more now that he has passed. Such a wonderful soul. My deepest condolences to his wife and family. Godspeed Mr. Klein!

To the Klein family, my very deepest condolences in your loss. I met Michael in 2004 when we worked together as investigators. He was a genuinely kind man and a generous mentor. He was the first investigator in Corpus, and he was known for having "written the book" on investigations. He was simply a legend in our agency, and it was a great honor to have known him. I will never forget how he always spoke so lovingly of his wife and children, his wonderful stories of New York and his military service and travels. I can hear his voice in my head saying, "...well, ya knooow..." and grinning , ear to ear. He always made me smile. He was a dear, dear man and I will miss him greatly.
