Art Kleinstein, the Canadian/American real estate developer and beloved philanthropist, died at Presbyterian St. Luke's on May 16th in Denver, Colorado at the age of 73. Art is survived by his adored wife of 33 years, Joanne (nee Solsberg); four children, Lauren Rose (Perry Rose), Mitchell Kleinstein (Dalia Stopnicki), Jared Kleinstein (Melissa Wagasky), and Shane Kleinstein; sister Edie Glazer (Morty Horowitz and the late Michael Glazer); ‘adopted daughters’ Romi Wallach (Josh Wallach) and Elise Sieradzki (David Sieradzki), to whom he was a second father; five grandchildren (Evan, Alexa, Emily, Leo, Kai); two granddogs (Bodie, Manny); many nieces and nephews, and thousands of people who thought of him as a brother, father, uncle, and best friend. Art was born in a displaced persons camp after WWII in Linz, Austria, before his family found a home in Oakville, Ontario. He lived in Toronto for many years before moving to Denver, Colorado in 1993, where he quickly became an integral part of the local community. Art worked as a real estate developer for most of his career, but had side professions as a sports ticket broker, unofficial and unpaid Vail Mountain tour guide, enthusiastic Jewish Film Festival judge, unlicensed therapist to his many friends, semi-pro golfer and full-time mensch. Art’s zest for life was contagious, and every room lit up when he entered. There was no such thing as a stranger to Art. He had an insatiable appetite for fun, adventure, and key lime pie. He was generous with his time, money, and love; but nothing mattered to him more than his family, which extended far beyond his bloodlines. Art was a devoted member of the Denver and Toronto Jewish communities. The void left in his absence is larger than Art’s giant heart.
