  1. Alfred has been a good brick lawyer and house builder in Montreal and White Rock, BC. Once he retired he enhanced his painting skills as a relaxing hobby. He was always welcome at the Salmon Arm Art Gallery and some of his paintings have been shown in various exhibitions. Alfred we always like your stories from the past. We will meet again.

  2. ” Fred ” Kleiner throughout his life was always a mentor to many people being knowledgeable in masonry , history , politics , religion and art. He loved a great debate, no matter what the subject . Having survived many oppressive obstacles he was truly ” a survivor.” He knew everything in life was bored for only a period of time , never was it forever .
    ” Fred ” :
    Our message to you is ” Until we meet again “.
    Lots of Love ,

  3. Dear Alfred, Thank you for your friendship these many years. Our family (immigrated in 1953) was among the first you met in Montreal when you immigrated in 1954. You were a true artist in several disciplines–housebuilding, sgraffito, painting, gardening, storytelling. Your knowledge of German and European history is legendary. You wanted to be a history teacher but the war intervened and life took a different and adventurous turn. Your life is a testament to the survival and nobility of the human spirit. You are now at peace and painting in the most beautiful colours.
    With much love, Gabi

  4. Dear Alfred, I was happy to be able to visit you in your home just three days before you left this life. Even though your body was weak, our conversation showed that your keen, alert mind and sense of humour were in perfect order. Much love, Gabi
