Matthew Stein, the longtime Brookline resident and Police Auxiliary Officer passed away at age 63, on Monday, August 05, 2019.
Beloved son of Bluma (Glickstein) Stein and the late Miklos Stein, survivor of the holocaust. Loving brother of Janet Stein Calm & her husband Fred of Brookline and Andrew Stein & his wife Diane of Maine. Cherished uncle of Lauren and Michael Stein and great-uncle of Delilah and Jameson Lannan.
Deputy Superintendent Myles Murphy described Stein as a people person, enthusiastic and genuine.
“Matt wore his heart on his sleeve and could tell more stories than just about anyone,” Murphy wrote in an email to the deparmtne. “If you gave him the time, he would explain the science behind many daily activities that you’d take for granted. He really loved being part of the BPD and was such a positive presence in person or on the radio. “Greetings and Salutations!”, as he would broadcast and then you would hear multiple responses in kind, from Officers who normally wouldn’t participate in jovial radio communications.”
Services at the Levine Chapels, 470 Harvard Stret, Brookline on Wednesday, August 07 at 12:00 p.m. Burial at Mishkan Tefila Memorial Park, Centre Street, West Roxbury. Shiva at the home of Janet & Fred Calm.
“He was a pleasure to be around and will be truly missed,” added Murphy.
In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to the Brookline Police Association Scholarship Fund, P.O. Box 470481, Brookline, MA 02447.
