Allan Michael Kline

October 23, 2020

Allan Michael Kline, 75, of Sudbury, MA, passed away on October 23, 2020 after a courageously fought battle. Fearless until the end, he was a proud, loving, and dedicated husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, nephew, friend, Chief Financial Officer, and the ultimate Red Sox fan.

Born in New Rochelle, NY and raised in West Orange, NJ, he was the adoring son of the late Terry and James Kline.  For 52 years he was the devoted husband to wife, Nan Kline. Proud father of Rick (Karen) of San Carlos, CA and David (Amy) of Brookline, and cherished grandfather of Casey, Brady, Noah and Annie. Dear brother of Linda (Walt) Anderson.  He graduated from UMass and Wharton Business School.

A lifelong sports enthusiast, some of his favorite memories and proudest accomplishments were on the basketball court, golf course, and baseball field. Winning his NJ High School state championship in 1963 remained a highlight; he maintained lifelong friendships with many of his teammates. His extreme passion for the Red Sox is a metaphor for the wholehearted pride, undying loyalty, fierce commitment, and endless support that he offered all whom he loved. Even more significant than his prized Red Sox, the role of sports fan he relished most was played out while watching his children and grandchildren play their respective sports.

Private graveside services will be held at Beit Olam East Cemetery in Wayland at 12:30 pm on Sunday in compliance with COVID protocols. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to Dana Farber Cancer Institute, P.O. Box 849168, Boston, MA 02284-9168 or to National Brain Tumor Society, 55 Chapel St, Suite 200, Newton, MA 02458.

Leonard D. Berman

October 21, 2020

Leonard Berman, 87, passed away peacefully at his home in Waban, MA on October 21, 2020. He was born in Brooklyn, NY, to a loving family, parents Harry and Mabel (Kasnetz) Berman, sister, Ruth, and brother, Stewart. He is survived by his siblings, his son, Bill, daughter-in-law Anna, their children Vinnie and Reece and by three nieces.

Leonard graduated from Hobart College and NYU Medical School, followed by residency at Children’s Hospital in Boston. He performed his national service through a two-year stint at the National Institutes of Health. In 1962, he married Audrey Buchman of Brooklyn. They had attended the same high school concurrently, without meeting each other!

After a year each in London, Paris and Stockholm on cancer research grants, and a further period of research in Jerusalem, the couple returned to the States, where Leonard taught and did research at the Boston University School of Medicine. He served for a period of time as Chief of the Pathology Department at Boston’s V.A. Hospital, after which he returned to Boston University.

In addition to his medical career, Lenny was an inveterate fisherman who shared his bounty with the neighborhood, an ardent philatelist, and he had a lifelong passion for music. As a flutist, he participated extensively in chamber music and ensemble performances. He also greatly enjoyed the company of his little dog, Houdini.

Lenny’s calm, soft-spoken demeanor belied a quick and sometimes mischievous wit. Someone said to Audrey, “he was a man of few words and gentle humor.” His neighbors will never forget his kindness, nor think of him without smiling.
