Earl M. Kline, 90, of Lebanon, passed away on Saturday, Feb. 6, 2021, at his residence. He was the husband of Viola H. (Wike) Kline.

Born in Myerstown on March 30, 1930, Earl was the son of the late Martin and Birtha Kline. He was a US Navy Veteran, fought in the Korean Conflict, and served on the USS Midway aircraft carrier. He had worked for Bethlehem Steel as a welder and worked in security at The Hershey Community Theatre and Good Samaritan Hospital. He also served on various church boards.

Earl made it into the medical journals at the Hershey Medical Center for a process that had previously never been successfully done. The doctors were able to re-attach his ear and have it grow back without any complications. They used Earl’s experience to teach future doctors through their medical training.

Surviving, in addition to his wife, are his children, Richard Kline, of Syracuse, NY, William (Laurie) Kline, Gloria Kline, Michael Kline, and Harold Kline Jr., all of Lebanon, PA, and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He was predeceased by a son, Harold Kline, Sr., of Lebanon. He was one of 13 children, being preceded in death by all his siblings.

He was well known and loved by many.

A viewing will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2021, from 6-9 p.m. at Kreamer Funeral Home and Crematory Inc., 618 E. Main Street. Funeral and burial services will be held privately.
