Refreshing Perspective

Edward William “Kip” Klein III, 63: Former Republican state lawmaker


Kip Klein, seen here in an undated file photo, was a pioneer in the Georgia GOP ranks when he served in the Legislature from 1991 to 1997.

Kip Klein, a Marietta attorney and pioneer in the Georgia GOP ranks when he served in the Legislature from 1991 to 1997, has died. He was 63.

Life changed for Klein, who represented what at the time was District 39 in Cobb County, shortly after he ran for the Republican nomination for attorney general in 1998. He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease – the degenerative, neuromuscular disorder that also afflicts actor Michael J. Fox and ex-boxer Muhammad Ali.

Edward William Klein III, known as Kip by nearly everyone, died Monday of complications from Parkinson’s disease, said his daughter Shannon Klein of Washington, D.C.

Services are planned for 3 p.m. Friday at the First Baptist Church in Woodstock.

Though Klein’s bid for attorney general was unsuccessful, he was beaten by David Ralston of Blue Ridge who was defeated by Democratic incumbent Thurbert Baker. Still, Klein remained politically active. He and his wife Sharon began working with U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson – a close friend of the couple – on a compromise that would allow research using select embryonic stem cells, which had been severely restricted by President George W. Bush.

Ralston, who went on to become House speaker, said Klein “embodied the very meaning of worthy adversary.”

“I will forever remember his kind spirit and tenacious will, his passion for the ideas in which he believed, yet respect for those who disagreed with him,” he wrote in an email. “The integrity and dignity he brought to public service are qualities that are becoming all too rare in today’s political climate.”

In addition to his daughter, survivors include his wife of 36 years, Sharon Klein of Marietta; daughters, Tate Ferguson of Dallas, and Brittany Hunter of San Jose, Calif.; brother, Danny Klein of Newnan; step mother, Winifred Klein of Atlanta; step sister, Caroline Alford of Rome; step brothers, Dan Boone of Spring Island, S.C., Major Boone of Marietta, Carl Boone of Florida, Bill Boone of Atlanta, and Bob Boone of Pinehurst, N.C.; and one granddaughter.

Edward ‘Kip’ William Klein III

Edward ‘Kip’ William Klein II

I

MARIETTA — Edward “Kip” William Klein III, a former east Cobb state representative described as a dedicated family man and public servant, died Monday from complications with Parkinson’s disease, surrounded by his family.

He was 63.

A memorial service is planned at 3 p.m. Friday in the chapel of First Baptist Woodstock.

Elected to the Georgia House in 1990 as a Republican, Klein served until 1997.

Among those who served with him in the General Assembly was U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson.

Isakson said in 1990 there were 35 Republicans and a 145 Democrats in the Georgia House.

“I would say anybody getting elected as a Republican with those kind of odds would definitely qualify for being a pioneer,” Isakson said. “He was very thoughtful, hardworking, family oriented, was very big on adoption legislation, which is something he did a lot of as an attorney.”

Klein’s northeast Cobb district has changed over the years through redistricting to now be represented by John Carson.

“I’ll miss him as a friend,” Isakson said. “I’ll miss him as a thoughtful advisor, and I’ll miss him as a guy who advocated for the rights of children and the family. Just an all-around prince of a fellow.”

Klein’s Republican colleagues aren’t alone in admiring the man. State Sen. Steve Thompson (D-Marietta) had high praise for Klein.

“He’s a little bit more to the right than I was, but we understood that and it never interfered with our friendship at all,” Thompson said. “He was one of those people that understood that friendships continue where politics sometimes stop. He’s one of those guys at 5 o’clock that understood that we were friends and neighbors, and I guess the best way to describe him is a gentleman. He was a gentleman and a very bright guy, and his motivations were always in my opinion very sincere.”

Klein’s daughter, Shannon Klein, a member of the Lassiter High School Class of 2005 who now works as a legislative aide for Isakson, said the family was holding up as best they could.

“We’ve lost a great man and a great father, but we know that he’s with the Lord, and we’re relieved for him that he’s free of suffering as much as he’ll dearly be missed,” she said.

The manner in which Klein prioritized his life is one of the many things his daughter admires.

“He loved the Lord first, then my mother second, the girls third, and with every other ounce of time he had he served others and poured his life out to others while he was well,” Shannon Klein said. “He’s been battling Parkinson’s for the past 15 years, but that’s not what we remember. Instead, we remember the legacy of service and strength that he left behind.”

Klein was active in the community, chosen to be the envoy to Kuwait for the Atlanta Olympic Committee and to interact on a good will mission on behalf of the state in the European Parliament by the European Community Visitors Programme.

Born and raised in Atlanta, he earned degrees from the University of Virginia and the Dean Rusk School of Law at the University of Georgia. He practiced family law in Marietta and took great joy in bringing families together through adoptions, Shannon Klein said.

In 2000, he received the “Angels in Adoption” award for the State of Georgia.

Survivors include his wife of 36 years, Sharon; daughters, Tate Ferguson and her husband, David, Brittany Hunter and her husband, Alexander, and Shannon Klein; brother, Danny Klein, granddaughter, Austen Hunter, and extended family: his stepmother, Winifred Klein, stepsister, Caroline Alford, stepbrothers, Dan Boone, Major Boone, Carl Boone, Bill Boone, and Bob Boone.

“My father was one of the most
 good humored, loving and passionate men I’ve ever known,” Shannon Klein said.

Bobbie was a member of Central Baptist Church where she taught the Cradle Roll Sunday School for over 20 years, then joined the Joy Class where she remained a member. Always involved in her children's lives, she served as a Cub Scout den mother for all four of her boys and a Brownie leader for her daughter.

Well known throughout Newnan for her civic involvement, she was active in the Driftwood Garden Club, having served one term as President, was a member of the Newnan Junior Service League as well as a member of the Ladies Auxiliary at Newnan Hospital. A consummate hostess, an avid bridge player, a master of knitting and needlepoint, but above all these she cherished her family. Even after moving to Wesley Woods in 2000 she continued to orchestrate the annual family gatherings at the old family home on Alpine Drive. Those who knew her will long remember her love of humor and her constant smile. This ever-positive outlook infected all around her. Just recently she joked that she probably was Newnan's oldest Matron of Honor, having served as such at the age of 85 for a close friend's wedding. A celebration of her life was held at Central Baptist Church at 1:00 O'clock pm on Friday, the 5th of November.

Howard Clarke Glover Jr.

A colorful chapter in the historical fabric of Coweta County came to an end in the early morning hours of Sept. 10, 2010, as Dr. Howard Clarke Glover Jr. departed this life in the comfort of his home."Dr. Howard," as he was affectionately known, had celebrated his 101st birthday last Dec. 17. He was born in Coweta County Dec. 17, 1908, and was one of nine children of the marriage of Howard Clarke and Fannie Virginia Jones Glover. Besides his parents, Dr. Glover was preceded in death by his siblings Virginia Glover Graham, Caroline Frances Glover, Thomas Jones Glover, J. Littleton Glover, Mary Jones Glover Nixon, and the brother with whom he operated The Glover Clinic, Dr. Nathaniel Banks Glover.
Educated as an undergraduate at Mercer University and the University of Virginia, Dr. Glover graduated from University of Virginia's School of Medicine in 1934. He was a member of Kappa Alpha and the Phi Beta PI medical society. He served internships and residencies at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Watts's Hospital in Durham, and at Egleston Hospital in Atlanta (now Children's Healthcare of Atlanta).He then returned to his roots in Newnan to practice medicine for more than 55 years, and for more than 40 years he operated the Glover Clinic at 6 Brown Street in partnership with his brother Nat. He retired in 1993 at the age of 85.Possessed of a remarkable spirit of service, Dr. Howard was the saving grace for many an anxious parent. His calm, reassuring manner put fears aside if the child presented a runny nose or any other more serious problem. His patients knew that at the end of the visit there would be that comforting hug from Dr. Howard to go along with the bird he inevitably drew on each child's hand. Mom and dad would be sent on their way, knowing that this good man would welcome their calls of concern should it be day or night. A great testimony to his endearing nature would be the hundreds of pictures of his patients that were framed on all the walls in his office. Many of his patients would continue to be cared for by him through high school and college if the need arose. His "kids" just did not want to give him up. Dr. Glover led a well-balanced life and loved to spend his leisure time enjoying hunting, fishing, or on the golf course. He was adept as a card player in bridge or poker. During his professional career he was a member of the Rotary Club and served on the board of, at that time, The Citizens and Southern Bank. As a loyal member of Central Baptist Church he had served as chairman of the board of deacons and was Deacon Emeritus at the time of his death. Dr. Glover is survived by his wife, Margaret Trapnell Glover to whom he was married Jan. 1, 1938, in Newnan. His children are Harriett Trapnell Glover McCune of Alexandria, Va., Howard Clarke Glover III and his wife Becky of Lookout Mountain, Tenn., John Trapnell Glover and his wife Sandra of Atlanta and William Norwood Glover of Atlanta. Also surviving are his grandchildren John Chambers McCune III of Mobile, Ala., John Trapnell Glover Jr. and his wife Merrilee of Bozeman, Mont., Howard Clarke Glover IV and his wife Sarah of Boston, Mass., Richard Trapnell Glover and his wife Emily of Chattanooga, Tenn., and Jeffrey Barron Glover and his wife Carrie of Atlanta. There are six great grandchildren. They are Elizabeth S. McCune and Catherine A. McCune of Victoria, BC, Amelia C. Glover of Bozeman, Mont., Sophia D. Glover of Boston, Mass., James Alexander Glover of Atlanta and Richard Gates Glover of Chattanooga. His surviving siblings are Winifred Glover Boone Klein of Atlanta and Clifford Clarke Glover of West Point, Ga. Funeral arrangements are by McKoon Funeral Home at 38 Jackson Street. Visitation with the family was Sunday at McKoon Funeral Home between 6 and 8 p.m. The funeral service was Monday, Sept. 13 at 2 p.m. at Central Baptist Church with Dr. Joel E. Richardson officiating. Interment was in Oak Hill Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, Dr. Glover's memory may be honored by contributions to Central Baptist Church of Newnan P.O. Box 1221 Newnan, Ga. 30264.

One of his many nieces, Susan Glover Logan, penned the following memory.
A tribute to Uncle Howard 
by Susan Glover Logan Saturday September 11th,2010 I don't actually remember the first time I saw him-but he was there at my delivery into this world-Mother used to tell me that he brought me to her and teased her that she had a big bouncing boy-then laughing, admitted that the baby was a girl child. That was a joke between them that was often repeated and enjoyed every time told. What I do remember is if I was sick- Uncle Howard would not be long in coming- He would arrive with his black bag and pull out magical potions that would make me well again. We were so fortunate-spoiled I guess- we didn't know what an appointment was- we just called Uncle Howard and he's say come in the back door of the office. I can close my eyes and see those back steps and then the long hall with all the photos of the children he and Uncle Nat had taken care of - in one of the exam rooms I remember there was a map of a magical kingdom. It was helpful to look at that rather than the glass cases of instruments and the silver container that I knew contained the sterile needles. Miss Emily could give a good shot-it was scary but as I remember it didn't actually hurt all that much. And Uncle Howard would draw a bird on my thumb and give me a sucker -off we'd go-all happy again. The last time I saw him was in the summer of 2009-he was 101. I went by the house and was greeted by the housekeeper/nurse who assured me that Uncle Howard and Aunt Margaret would be happy to see me though my visit was totally unannounced. We went through the house to the breakfast room next to the kitchen and they were both sitting in chairs-facing each other. Aunt Margaret was, as always, dressed to perfection-hair done, makeup on -pearls in place-hands in her lap -her feet crossed at the ankles while Uncle Howard, clean shaven as usual, was dressed in casual slacks with a long sleeved blue Oxford shirt. And they were both sound asleep. When the nurse announced that I was there, they both raised their heads, opened their eyes and immediately greeted me with smiles, asking me all about my family. How is your husband, Bill, and your son, Kevin, they asked. They were on the dollar, bright as could be. We talked about family mostly-very little about the usual ailments people relate-they were interested in telling me about the latest great grandchild and showing me pictures of all. Just before I left I remarked that the flowers and the yard were so pretty and they both rose spontaneously to go to the window. Then they animatedly told me about the little rabbit. Seems that in the morning there is a rabbit that comes out of the woods and they traced his path for me-first he goes to this bush and then he hops over to that flower and see he has nibbled on this one and then he hops over there. I had to chuckle to myself-at all of us- standing at the window together peering at the invisible path of a little rabbit who was not there. But when you are 98 and 101 as they were then-isn't it time to smell the roses and imagine the little rabbit making his morning run even when he is gone? Uncle Howard, my sweet Uncle died yesterday. We will miss him- his life was a gift and we enjoyed having him with us for a long, long time. We were so lucky!
