NGWA expresses its condolences to the family and friends of Harry Kleiman, who passed away on April 30 in Iron Mountain, Michigan. He was 80.
Harry’s father began Kleiman Pump & Well Inc. in 1946. He worked alongside his father until 1961 when he assumed ownership of the business and served as president over the next 50-plus years.
Some of his professional associations included Michigan Water Well Advisory Board to the Governor—serving as chairman periodically; Michigan Department of Public Health Committee drafting policy guidelines regarding hydrofracturing of wells; Society of Mining Engineers of American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical, and Petroleum Engineers; Michigan Ground Water Association—serving periodically as director and president; Engineering Ministries International, the American Water Works Association, and the Wisconsin Water Well Association.
In 1996, Kleiman was given the honor of being named the Michigan Water Well Driller of the Year.
