George Joseph Klemencic, Sr., "Klem", age 79 of Ross Township, passed away peacefully on Saturday, October 26, 2019. Beloved husband of 56 years to Sandra (Lamb) Klemencic; devoted father of Mary Louise Klemencic, George Joseph Klemencic, Jr. (wife Nicole) and the late Tamra Jean Geanangel; proud grandfather of Thomas James McKay and great-grandfather of Brody James McKay; brother of Leonard Klemencic (wife Patti) and his very special four legged friend, Ozzy.

Klem, a retired teacher, taught school at the Western Area Vocational Technical and Career Center in Houston, PA, for over 26 years. His students were near and dear to his heart, always taking great pride in their successes. An avid sportsman, he loved to fish and hunt and collect Indian artifacts.

He served his country honorably in the US Navy during the Vietnam War. For many years, Klem and his family lived nearby the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies. With his service history, family will place him at rest with his fellow servicemen and servicewomen in the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies, privately at a later date. Arrangements are entrusted to the H.P. Brandt Funeral Home, Inc., (412-364-4444). Condolences may be shared at www.brandtfuneralhome.com.

I am sorry to learn of George’s passing, I am a cousin, I only recall meeting George once when he was on leave in 1966 or 67.
Wishes of Love and Mercy to George’s family.

I always enjoyed the time spent with George and Sandy. We loved sharing hunting stories and George was always interested in my hunting dogs. I, in turn, shared his love of historical guns and arrowheads. I'll miss you George. RIP.
