Frederick Richard Klein, Jr.
Date Of Birth: 08/13/1964
Date of Death: 10/07/2021

Frederick Richard Klein, Jr. of Portland, Oregon, born August 13, 1964, died on October 7, 2021 due to injuries sustained from a tragic car accident in 2016.

“Fred” grew up in Center Moriches, New York. During high school, he worked under the tutelage of a friend’s father, learning the electrical trade. He earned his journeyman’s license and later became a master electrician, starting his own electrical business, Klein Electric, Inc. in New Suffolk, New York. The business very successfully grew and served the entire east end of Long Island. He later sold the business when he decided to move closer to family in Florida.

Upon moving to Sebastian, Florida, Fred began working for Complete Electric as a commercial estimator. Fred served in this role until the tragic car accident on February 28, 2016.

Fred thoroughly enjoyed a good prank and he loved to laugh.

Fred was an avid snow skier and golfer, and he loved boating and fishing. Fred skied all over North America and in several western European countries. He enjoyed golf tournaments with his friends, and he was looking forward to retirement.

Fred was predeceased by his father, Frederick Richard Klein, Sr., and he is survived by his mother, Phoebe Burdick Klein, of Sebastian, Florida, his two sisters, Suzanne Klein Badley of Vero Beach, Florida, and Elizabeth Klein Senif, of Portland, Oregon, his nieces, Alexandra Beuttell Roberts and Haley Beuttell of Vero Beach, Florida, and nephews Starke Senif and Nicholas Senif of Portland, Oregon.

There will be a private remembrance service in Long Island, New York, next spring.

    Skiing in Switzerland, fishing in Montauk, and golfing at Cherry Creek we’ve had many great times together. Even teaching me your electrical trade we had fun. Definitely the only guy I knew that would send his burger back twice because it was over done and then under done. You definitely ate some spit that day my friend. I will always remember all the great times we had together and I’m extremely sad that we can no longer create more memories together. May you rest in peace you ‘dirty bastard’.
    Love ya buddy,
