News about Peter Klein


It is with a heavy heart that we inform the View Ridge Swim and Tennis Club members that former manager, Peter Klein, passed away in his sleep on Friday, July 22.

Peter was a swim coach at View Ridge in 1962 and then returned as the manager from 1989-2014. Peter was a devoted educator during the school year and during the summers was a "Pool Guy" who was most satisfied when the pool water was crystal clear and the deck was hosed.

For those of us who worked and knew him over the years we will always miss his great sense of humor, love for teaching, and fun stories. He did so much behind the scenes that many didn't know about. We continue to be reminded even after he left the pool many years ago. He will be missed.

Peter is survived by his wife Karen and their son Cameron.  Flowers were sent to his family from the View Ridge Swim and Tennis Club community.

There is a memorial set for October 8 from 2 - 5 p.m. at the Ballard Elks Club. Here's the link to his obituary, which ran in to the Seattle Times this past weekend:
