Remembering Vic Kleman - August 28, 1932 - July 1, 2016
 

We are saddened to report that longtime ACE member Vic Kleman passed away this morning, (July 1, 2016) at the age of 83.

Vic was an enthusiastic ACE member and fan of Kennywood who seemed to be loved by all and he considered many in ACE to be his family. He drew worldwide media attention for his marathons on Kennywood's Jack Rabbit, the last of which occurred just 13 months ago when he took 95 consecutive rides to celebrate the ride's 95th birthday. In total, Vic tallied more than 5,000 rides on the ACE Roller Coaster Landmark. Many may also remember Vic when he worked part-time for Kennywood during the park's Phantom Fright Nights as the greeter at the Kennyville Cemetery. The park honored him less than a year ago during KennyKon XXVI.

We welcome you to revisit Vic's last Jack Rabbit marathon by visiting our Facebook album dedicated to it. You can also use the search box near the top left of ACE Western Pennsylvania's Facebook home page to search for "Kleman" to see several posts that featured him, including links to news articles.
