Obituary Condolences

Joris Naiman, 61, died at home in Waltham, MA on 9 April 2013. Born in Chicago to Mark and Adeline (Lubell) Naiman, he grew up in Philadelphia and Lincoln. Joris attended UMass and MIT, where he studied metallurgy, rowed and played hockey, and interned in the laboratory of Harold "Doc" Edgerton. Following an engineering M.S. at Rensselaer and management experience in industry, he took a J.D. at Boston College, then received the LL.M. in Environmental and Natural Resources Law, summa cum laude, from Lewis & Clark Law School. During 17 years with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, he achieved many successes in refining and enforcing environmental regulation to protect endangered habitats and wildlife. Joris was an avid hiker and flyer (CFI helicopter and fixed-wing), and was a founding member of the Waltham Land Trust. He is survived by wife and hiking partner Lesya Struz, and brothers Kiri (South Deerfield) and Alaric (Lincoln). A memorial is being planned.
Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the Waltham Land Trust.
