Stephen A. Justham

Thursday, October 25, 2012 by The Press in Obituaries

Kutztown University professor

Stephen A. Justham, Ph. D., died Oct. 21, 2012, as a result of complications from diabetes and heart disease.

Born May 22, 1937, in New Kensington, to Alton and Margaret (Gall) Justham, in reality he arrived 300 years too late, possessing enormous and lasting curiosity in all people, places and things, as would any Renaissance Man.

An accomplished student and educator, he was forever inspired by the "spark of learning."

As a career teacher, he never awarded a test score of 100 percent, as nobody is perfect.
