Remembering Bob Kline

April 30, 2012|Susie Hoffman | Around Funkstown

The town is mourning the loss of past mayor and friend of Funkstown, Bob Kline. 

Kline served as mayor for 28 years, as well as serving on the Washington County Board of Education.

He was known for fairness, as well as toughness.

Bob and his wife, Reatha, were married for 62 years and raised three children.

Many of Kline’s accomplishments could easily be shared in credit with his wife, who was as much a blessing to this small town as Bob.

His accomplishments were many, and his kindness was boundless.  He was a great man who will be missed indeed.
