October 2, 1932 –

February 12, 2014


Joe Klein passed away on February 12th, 2014, in a tragic drowning accident while snorkeling in Maui, Hawaii. He will be deeply missed by his wife Elizabeth, children and grandchildren.


Born in Glasgow Scotland, Joe had a successful clothing manufacturing business in Glasgow before moving to Canada in 1980. Joe worked in the clothing industry in Calgary, was a real estate agent and then he and his wife Elizabeth opened Te Papa Nui Antiques in Invermere, where they made lots of friends and had great fun with the business. He recently retired for the third time at age 80.


Joe was a man who loved life to the fullest, loved travel, loved his wife, children and grandchildren. Like Peter Pan, Joe was eternally young and if there was an adventure to be had he was first in line.


He will be forever in our hearts.
