Obituary of Shaun Klein

Shaun Christopher Klein was called into splendor and glory on June 7, 2017.


He was born in Morristown, NJ on June 1, 1984 to his loving parents, John and Lirelle Klein. Shaun was a devoted husband to his wife, Donna, and an amazing father to his son, Christian Eleazar.


He was a role model for his two younger brothers, Kevin and Steven, and enjoyed dirt bike riding, fishing, and tinkering with all sorts of machinery, and spending time with his brothers and many cousins. Shaun had a wonderful sense of humor and a special gift for making people laugh.

He loved being a father to Christian. Shaun and Donna attended the Lighthouse Christian Fellowship in East Brunswick where they were an inspiration to other young couples.


Left to mourn his passing and treasure the memories are his wife, Donna, and son, Christian of Edison, NJ, his parents, John and Lirelle Klein, of Mount Arlington, NJ, brothers Kevin of Morris Plains, NJ and Steven of Mt. Arlington, NJ. He is also survived by his grandmother, Judith Herrick Antonelli of Hopatcong, NJ and grandparents, Bruce and Margaret Klein of Indian Land, SC. His aunts, Michele Antonelli, Beth Antonelli, Kristen Sadowski, and Kelly Barrett are saddened at the death of their nephew. Shaun also leaves behind his cherished cousins, Calvin, Matthew, Kathryn, Michael, Christopher, Travis, Caroline, Stephanie, Melissa, Joshua, Noelle, Jonny, Bryson, Anna, and Ava. He is also survived by his in-laws, David and Darlene Amendola of Colonia, NJ and his brother and sister-in-law, Pastor David and Meghan Amendola. Many other family members and close friends are also left with wonderful memories of Shaun. He was pre-deceased by his loving grandfather, John Antonelli, in 2003.


Shaun was kind, caring, and helpful to everyone. He filled many lives with joy and will be missed forever by those who knew and loved him. The pain of losing our beloved Shaun is lessened by our knowing that he is in Heaven and that we will be reunited with him again one day.
