Michael Klein, a longtime resident of Albuquerque, lost his battle with cancer at age 67 on Feb 15. Mike was born in Chicago Ill in 1957. His family moved back home to South Dakota shortly afterward where they stayed until the family moved back to Chicago in 1966.

Upon settling in Albuquerque, he worked for many years as an architectural drafter at Preferred Building Supplies. He was a graduate of UNM where he received his B.S in Geographic Information Systems. Mike enjoyed playing ping pong and participated in the Sr. Olympic Games.
