Mr. Klemenich was part of the Greatest Generation. He loved his family and all the men he worked with at Bethlehem Steel. His commitment to testify on behalf of his brethren at Bethlehem Steel will always be remembered and be used to help so many other workers who lost their life so early. The gates of heaven flew open from this warrior. He will be missed by so many. John P. Comerford, Esq.
