Michael Kent Kline, 65, of Madison, Va., passed away on November 14, 2020. Born in Manassas in 1955, he was the son of the late Harley and Vera Kline.
Mr. Kline was a farmer much of his life, working a dairy farm in Manassas, where he was raised, and later farmed in Madison County. He had most recently retired from Culpeper Co-Op where he worked for over 20 years. During his younger years, Mr. Kline loved working on muscle cars with friends and was a lifelong fan of MOPAR. Collecting firearms and shooting were hobbies of his and deer season always brought friends to the farm for early breakfasts and days hunting out on the farm. Mr. Kline will be remembered for his fun and good nature. He was a man that would take care of things that needed to be done and always willing to lend a hand and his experience to others. He loved his family dearly and his passing is greatly felt.
Those that survive him are his wife Lisa, his son Michael Kline and wife Beverlee of Rockingham County, his son Jason Kline and wife Mirna of Madison County, and stepdaughter Anna-Lise' Bohrer of Locust Dale; three siblings, Kathy Miller and husband David of Pa;, Ruth Mickelberry and husband David of Madison County, Christa Harrell and husband Louis of Manassas; four grandchildren Isabella, Brian, Nadia, and Emmett.
A memorial service will be held at 11:00 am on Friday, November 20, 2020 at Preddy Funeral Home in Madison. The family will receive friends one hour before the service, from 10:00 to 11:00 am at the funeral home. Due to the restrictions on gatherings, the service will be for family only.
He was a fellow classmate of mine and I remember he always had a smile on his face that would light up a room. My condolences and prayers are with you. God bless and take care
I remember Mike as a skinny kid who would com visit to Florida with Ed & David.
they had a lot of fun & memories.
Mike and I went to school together. A really nice guy with a beautiful smile. My prayers and thoughts are with the family.
Mike was my first best friend when we moved to the USA as immigrants. He helped me out and taught me so many things in a most difficult time of my young life!!! He will always have a special place in my heart!!! My condolences to his family and may God help them through this difficult time.
Mike is my cousin. Every time my family visited the farm, he was my playmate when we were kids. We would get lost in the tall corn and find nests of baby kittens in the hayloft together. He was always kind and easy to be around as we grew older, and we both were grateful to grow up surrounded by a loving family.
Paul and I(Nancy) O’Connor have wonderful memories of Mike and his whole family when he was a fairy farmer in Madison VA. Our memories go back when his family and ours worshiped at the Manassas Church of the Brethren.
We remember hunting and hiking and watching him out on his tractor plowing, planting, harvesting his crops on his Diary Farm in Locust Dale.
And then we continued as friends when moved just up the road from us in Locust Dale, VA. Always there if you needed help. He fixed out lawn tractor several times. We will miss him and pray for his wife, Lisa, and step daughter, Anna-Lise and all his family who are celebrating his life. God must have needed a farmer in heaven❣️
Mike was the eldest of the cousins on the farm growing up and I really admired him and his cool hobbies of which he had many. Guns, hot rod cars and trucks, blowing things up, hunting and fishing are just a few. Mike knew how to have a good time while working on the farm, but was also a hard worker and an excellent mechanic who could make anything work. Mike will surely be missed by family members and friends.
