Don Robert Cline died peacefully at home in Andover, New Hampshire on September 20, 2019 after a nine-month battle with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. He was born August 7, 1949 in Ravenna, Ohio to James Cline and Adelle (Beard) Cline.
He was a 1971 graduate of Hiram College. Upon moving to New Hampshire, he worked as a videographer and producer at Creativideo, Inc. He was a stained glass restoration expert and the owner of Cline Conservators. He restored stained glass windows for many area churches, historical buildings and private homes. Some of his work can be seen at Castle in the Clouds, St. Paul’s School and St. John’s Church. He later joined his wife’s company, Cline Design, where he worked with commercial construction companies throughout North America.
Don was a man of many talents. He was an avid bagpiper and served as President of the New Hampshire Pipes and Drums. He was a woodworker, boatbuilder, sailor, world traveler, excellent cook, lover of history, and photographer.
He is survived by his wife of 32 years, Lorraine, of Andover, NH; daughters Corinne Cline of Bow, NH and Meredith Cline of Penacook, NH; brother David Cline of Littleton, Colorado; sister Shirley Cline of Garrettsville, Ohio, and several nieces and nephews.
The family wishes to thank Dr. Oreofe Odeji, Dr. Sharyn Kurtz and the many nurses and interns of Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women’s Hospital who cared for Don during his illness. In addition, the Lake Sunapee Region VNA and Hospice team, as well as Chrystal Hill and many dear friends and neighbors, provided much-needed love and support in Don’s final weeks.
