Curtis Michael Kline passed away August 4, 2018. He was born February 6, 1946 to Boyd and Lila Kline. In 1968 Curt married his high school sweetheart, Susan Shelton. They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary December 28, 2018. Curt joined the Army in 1967. He had been a Ham Radio Operator learning the Morse Code in high school and this helped him to become a Specialist during his stint in Vietnam. Upon returning home from Vietnam, Curt was stationed at Two Rock Ranch in Santa Rosa, CA. Sue met him there and in 1970 they had a baby boy, Matthew Kline. He and his family moved back home to Medford where Curt went to college at SOC and earned a business degree.

His first job was at Pacific Finance. Two years later he went to work for the State of Oregon making VA Home loans. He eventually went to work at the Jackson County Assessor's office and retired in 2007. He was an avid member of the SO Rock Garden Society, often a speaker with his kooky slide shows of our native and alpine plants. Curt will be remembered for his humor and kindness. He was a devoted husband caring for his wife and always ready to help his family at any time. He is survived by his wife, Susan Kline; son, Matt Kline and his wife, Larissa; sisters, Kathy Maxwell and Sandra Welburn. A Celebration of Life was held September 19, 2018 with Honor Guard.
