Joseph (Joey) Steven Klein (67) was born on March 5, 1956 and passed on March 7, 2023.  Joey was an exceptional person in every way.   He was a great son to Renny and Harry Klein, a wonderful brother to Debby and Jeff Klein, a loving husband to Wendy Klein, and an extraordinary dad to Rachel (28) and Josh (17).  He lived life to the fullest, whether playing baseball, hockey, surfing, or skiing.    He cherished every day as though it was his last day.

Joey was an accomplished real estate attorney, but also was an agent to baseball players, in addition to starting a company called Media in Motion. He loved his clients, his work environment, and every part of his day-to-day life.  He loved to read,  work on math computations and especially loved his phone games.  He was a master at Candy Crush.

He was a Board member of Hillcrest Country Club from (2014-2019) where he organized the Hillcrest Charitable Fund. He also was on The Fulfillment Fund advancement committee, Poker committee at Wilshire Blvd Temple, AJC Board member and a member of the Board of Governors at Cedars-Sinai.  Joey’s son established a non-profit, called Lovebugs* (Cedar-Sinai NIC Unit) which he was instrumental in putting together the logistics and fundraising for the organization.

Joey loved to travel with his family globally.  Whether skiing in Mammoth, Deer Valley Aspen, or Zermatt, he loved every moment skiing especially with his son Josh.  His favorite places to travel included Costa Rica, Cabo, Hawaii, and Europe.

The most important thing to Joey was his beautiful family.  He spent so much time nurturing and loving his children.  Joey would make himself available anytime to do anything for Rachel and Josh.  He truly loved them completely and unconditionally.  And he was a wonderful, thoughtful, caring, loving and generous husband. He loved Wendy so much and Wendy loved Joey so much.  Their marriage of 31 years was complete bliss.  They respected, loved, and honored each other completely and fully.

Joey will be loved forever by his family, friends, Rachel, Josh, and Wendy.  He will be missed beyond words.  May Joey rest in peace blessed with love, strength, and comfort.

We loved Joey so much!
