George was born on a farm in Bird Island, MN on Feb. 21, 1934. As a proud U of M grad (BS '62), he had a long and successful career as a Professional Mechanical Engineer. After retiring from Hennepin County in 2000, George became an avid traveler; visiting scores of countries, trekking in mountains, and cruising around the world. An enthusiastic story and joke teller, he naturally made friends wherever he went. He enjoyed participating in tennis tournaments, ballroom dancing, and the ULLR ski club - but his family was always his first priority.
He lived in Mpls. all of his adult life and enjoyed the Lakes, working downtown, and the many arts in the city. He loved deeply and was dearly loved in return by his children and grandchildren, his siblings, relatives and countless friends. We will miss him greatly, but he will always be in our hearts.
