John Klemic Obituary
August 14, 1954 - December 22, 2016 John Klemic, age 62, of Los Angeles. Survived by his wife, Connie Orosco and his stepdaughter, Jackie Leon; mother Rozene Klemic of Naperville, IL; siblings Gladys (Pepin Carolan) Klemic of Naperville, IL and James (Kathryn) Klemic of Falls Church, VA; his nephews and niece Joseph Carolan, Mary Klemic and Samuel Klemic; and a lovingly complex tapestry of in-laws, uncles, aunts, cousins, friends and colleagues. He was preceded in death by his father John Klemic, Sr.; and siblings Mary Klemic and Thomas Klemic. John was born in Sioux Falls, SD and was raised there and in Milwaukee, WI and Detroit, MI. John moved to LA shortly after graduating from the Univ. of Michigan, Dearborn. John was a 36-year employee of Caltech. He was an extraordinarily creative, talented and innovative instrument maker and machinist, supporting hundreds of scientific projects at Caltech and JPL. John was involved with volunteer projects including Caltech's Electric Vehicle Club. He was a Lindberg Grant finalist. John was a loving father to his daughter Jackie. Although his life was cut short by cancer, he was happy to be able to participate in her recent Quinceanera. Services will be held on Jan. 7, 2017 at the Hollywood Forever Funeral Home & Cemetery, 6000 Santa Monica Boulevard, Hollywood, CA 90038
