Kristen Pierre Kline passed away on August 3rd, 2019, he was 42. Kris was born a big, beautiful, healthy, baby, and was loved dearly by his parents. He was born in Schenectady, NY, but spent most of his childhood in Vermont. Kris loved nature and animals, spending a lot of time playing in the woods, and in the beautiful Battenkill River. Going camping, on the river, and tubing down the river were also favorite activities.

Throughout his life, Kris loved all animals and was a dog whisperer of sorts. He had a big heart, and was always willing to help others. He was well respected, as he was a very motivated, hard worker, who always put out his best effort to do a great job.

Kris will be loved forever, and missed dearly by all who knew him. Kris is loved, and survived by the love of his life, Christina “Blair” Kline of Greensboro, NC, his mother, Annie Davis, and her husband, Bruce, of Hobe Sound, FL, and his father, Pierre Kline of Albany, NY.

He is also survived by his father and mother-in-law, Jim and Lynn Kelly, brother-in-law, Jimi Kelly, and he and Blair’s precious dog child, Oscar. Kris had a special relationship with his cousin, Eric Sagendorf, and he and Kory’s long time childhood friend, “Fritzie” Kline.

Annie, Bruce and Pierre,

What God-awful new to hear of Kris' passing. To have not one, but two holes in your heart is beyond my comprehension. You are all in my prayers, praying for peace and consolation.

My memories of Kris were as a young boy on Robinson St in Schenectady where he and Korey were often playing with their army men or making movies in the backyard with those early two piece video recorders that you had to carry the recording device over your shoulder and hold the camera separately.

Mostly, I remember his sweet smile. Smile on Kris, smile down on us from heaven with Korey - Bob Dintrone

Annie and Bruce, we are so very sorry for your heartbreaking loss and all the pain you’re feeling. We are sending lots of love, hugs and prayers your way. Kris was a kind soul with a heart full of compassion.

Our two year old daughter, Nicole, once went to stay at Annie’s while I was in labor with our second child. Nicole had never been away from us overnight and I knew it wouldn’t be easy for her. Eight year old Krissy had Nicole sleep right by his side all night long. He kept her close and watched over her so she wouldn’t be scared. She really bonded with Krissy and he kept that big brother role with Nicole for years to follow.

Annie’s love for children showed right through Krissy and Korey in the way that they treated both of our children. They often brought our kids little toys or things to enjoy and found ways to share and interact with Nicole and Matthew even though there was an age gap.

Kris and Korey went through a long break dancing phase and were always proud to share their latest moves. They went on for hours twirling all over the hardwood floor and hopping around like gymnasts....so free and able to enjoy life to the fullest, just the way Annie encouraged them to be.

Then there was the time that Kris wanted to explore the brand new one day old van that his parents had just purchased. He managed to roll it forward and crash it into the parked car ahead of it. Brand new van. He laid the groundwork for some funny stories to share in the future.

Even though years have passed since we’ve seen Kris, knowing he was there just made us feel better. We are left with a very deep sadness knowing that Krissy has passed. However, I am sure that he and Korey have been reunited and that they once again feel whole. I know that Krissy and Korey will continue to be near all who loved them because hearts once strongly connected endure forever.

God bless you, sweet Krissy, and you too, sweet Korey. With all our love we wish you peace. Pam & Bob Dintrone
