Richard D. Kleinberg (Update)

1943 ∼ 2020

With profound sadness we announce the passing of our loving husband, father and grandfather, Richard Kleinberg, on May 24, 2020 at 77 years of age.

He was born in the Weequahic section of Newark, New Jersey, which is why Philip Roth was his favorite author. He went to Rutgers University and Rutgers Law School.

He worked in commercial real estate for most of his adult life.   He had a special love for Martha's Vineyard and was deeply engaged with the Martha's Vineyard Hebrew Center and other organizations on the island. He has been coming to the Vineyard for over 33 years and has lived here permanently for 8 years.

He was the beloved husband of Sharon Kleinberg and father and father-in-law to Rachel Kleinberg, Mark Schnitzer and Jess and Mike Carroll. Cherished grandfather to Eliza, Leah, Max, Jonah and Jordyn.   He also leaves behind his sister, Jane Carroll, and his brother Bob Kleinberg.

He will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.

Donations in his memory can be made to the Martha's Vineyard Hebrew Center, PO Box 692, Vineyard Haven, MA 02568
