All of the Middletown Country Club family sends our deepest sympathies to Rob, Mary and all of the Kleckner family. Mr. K was one of a kind, and he was SO proud that Rob was able to acquire Linfield National GC. He ALWAYS brightened my day when he was in the Langhorne area and would stop by the club. He will be sorely missed. I know that he is probably bugging the big man upstairs to do something about the Phillies! Rest in peace Mr. K.

Over the 2 years I bartended at Linfield National, I saw Art almost every shift. He always came in the building with a huge smile on his face and a new story to tell. I treasure all of the conversations he and I shared about life and family, and I’ll never forget any of the advice he gave me over the years. To the Kleckner family, I’m so sorry for your loss. Art truly was an amazing person who had so much pride and love for his family. You’re all in my thoughts.

Mary/Kleckner Family: My most sincere sympathies on Bob's passing. Your Bob was a pleasure to know and one of the real "nice guys" in the world. He loved to laugh, loved to joke, was passionate about the things he admired and voiced loudly about those he didn't. I admired his work ethic, his integrity and his smile when it he one down the fairway. We'll all miss him. Dan

Bob, you and Mary were the best neighbors, and great friends. My family and I will miss you dearly. I’ll miss those conversations in your driveway over a cold Bud, and our phone calls over the past few years. You made the world brighter, “but who don’t know that”. Thanks for being my friend.

Art, How much all of us will miss your smile, friendly greeting every am or pm when you entered the Pro shop at Linfield. You were not only the highlight of my day but every at Linfield. Your Love of the Place as you would call it was so uplifting, but more important your love of Your Family and Mary was even more Exceptional. I will treasure our enthusiastic discussions of Penn State football- their QB and Head coach Franklin. You were truly a wonderful Husband and Father and will be sorely missed by all. I can’t attend the viewing but my Heartfelt feelings and many Prayers will be with You and the Whole family! With Love and Respect. Coach P

Uncle Bob, as we all knew him, was one of the many reasons why all of us in Lakeview Estates had such a magical time living there. Uncle Bob had a few years on most of us and as such he was the perfect neighbor to give advice, lend a hand or have a beer. Of course, being the perfect neighbor requires having a perfect wife. Mary filled the role wonderfully even carrying my pregnant wife after she broke her toe while I was out of town. Sorry I can’t be there Thursday but I hope to see you all again. Love to all

Mr. Robert, you were the one of the first friend I made at Yardley. So glad We were able to enjoy each other’s company for over 16 years. Always looked forward to our trip to Linfield and our day of golf. I appreciated that your wife and kids would lend you to us for the day! I will miss talking golf and family with you! God bless you and your family

Boss man, One of the highlights about working at LNGC was when you’d come walking into the pro shop with that smile on your face, twinkle in your eye, and hop in your step. It was easy to see how proud you were of your family. And the love you had for your beautiful Mary made me wish I had that in my life. Boss man, let’s talk about the Phillies. You will be missed.
