Gene E. Kleinsmith Jr. Obituary

Gene Everett Kleinsmith Jr. June 24, 1964- May 26, 2014 of Mt. Kisco, New York Passed away of cardiac arrest after a day of fishing -doing what he loved only second to his beloved Children Ian, Charlie and Maggie and his wife of 22 years, Tracy Mahoney. He also leaves behind his mother Kathleen Kleinsmith of Alexandria, Virginia, his sister Katie Csobaji of Austin, Texas, his Father in Law Richard Mahoney and Mother in law Therese Mahoney of Red Hook, New York; his sisters in law Mary Harrison, Kathleen Mahoney and his brothers in law Michael Mahoney, Patrick Mahoney and Timothy Mahoney, their spouses and many loved nieces and nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles. Gene grew up in Laurel, NY and on the farms and beaches of eastern Long Island where he developed a lifelong love for the water and fishing. At an early age, he could identify many species of fish, knew the tide cycles and had a natural curiosity that led him to figure out exactly what the horseshoe crabs were doing on the beach. He attended SUNY Cortland where he met Tracy and graduated with a degree in Biology. After college he followed his passion for the sea and became a lobsterman with a good friend. Together they traveled the waters of the East Coast, setting traps and selling their catch to restaurants in the northeast. He and Tracy married in 1991 while he attended graduate school - being awarded Masters Degrees in environmental engineering and civil engineering from Manhattan College. While raising their family, Gene became an avid cook - reinventing many favorites with a special spin. He shared his love of fishing with the children and taught them how to ski and swim. He worked as an engineer for HydroQual, J. Flynn Engineering and then opened his own firm, K&H Consulting in 2004. K&H Consulting serviced many of Manhattan's most prestigious addresses and churches. Gene will be missed for his culinary talents, professional guidance, friendship and contagious smile. He was a good father, husband, friend, and trusted professional. Gene will be remembered in a service on Sunday June 1, 2014 Memorial Visitation from 2pm to 4pm Memorial Service at 4 pm Cassidy-Flynn Funeral Home 288 East Main Street, Mt.
