JUST, Klemens Thomas Andreas died of natural causes while asleep at home in Berlin, Germany, on April 18, 2017. He was born in Berlin on June 23, 1956, the second son of Kurt and Sigrid Just. In September 1961, the Justs immigrated to Tucson, AZ, where Kurt was a Professor of Physics at the UofA and Sigrid raised their three boys. Klemens was a champion swimmer and enjoyed playing the cello. Soon after graduating from Tucson HS, Klemens moved back to Berlin. He was in training for the German Olympic Swimming Team, but an injury dashed those hopes. He then became a master cabinet-maker, well known for his fine craftsmanship. He returned to the USA in 1979, living and working in California for 12 years, before moving back to Berlin, where he lived the rest of his life. Klemens was loved by his family and all his friends. He was very quiet, easy-going, and affable. He had suffered a serious stroke on Christmas 2006 and also had a heart condition, which led to his untimely death. He is survived by his older brother, Stefan (wife Rebecca), and younger brother, Felix. A Memorial Mass will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 22, 2017 at St. Thomas More Newman Center, 1615 E. 2nd St., in Tucson. Interment of his ashes will be in a private ceremony. Notes of condolence may be sent to Stefan Just, 349 Blowing Rock, Beaumont, CA 92223, or to Rev. Felix Just SJ, 401 W. Leonora St., Anaheim, CA 92805.
