Obituary for George Moskalik

George  Moskalik
George H. Moskalik passed away peacefully on April 11, 2018, in the company of his family at the age of 100. He is survived by his beloved wife of 72 years and his best friend, Alice; son, Thomas (Linda) Moskalik of Rochester, MN, their children, Brian (Karna) Moskalik, Megan (Gage) Hansen, and their children, Cullen and Declan; daughter, Ann Barnett (Jim) of Louisville, KY, their daughter, Elizabeth (Jimmy) Dodson of Chevy Chase, MD, and their children, Fitz, Charles; daughter, Susan (Tim) Flynn of Minneapolis, MN, their children Laura (Rory) Verducci of Westfield, NJ, and their child, Jordan, Tyler (Marie) Flynn of Minneapolis, MN; sister, Joan (Robert) Simons; sister-in-law, Nora Moskalik. Preceded in death by parents, Joseph and S. Phyllis Moskalik; sister, Rosemary (Pete) McVay; brothers, James and John (Lorraine) Moskalik.

George was a 1935 graduate of North High and a 1939 graduate of the University of St. Thomas. George wrote, “When I was at my college Commencement ceremony, the winds and the storms were raging outside, perhaps signaling the World War to come.” In 1939 George put his career on hold to serve his Country. He served in the 314th Bomb Wing, earning 4 battle stars and numerous ribbons in the Pacific Theater. George was honorably discharged in 1945 as an officer (Captain) in the Army Air Corps. Following his military service, he returned to his career at Ameriprise (formerly American Express, IDS and Investors Syndicate), where he became President of Tower Mortgage. George had additional degrees from Northwestern University in Mortgage Banking and was a member of the Board of Governors for Mortgage Bankers Association. He retired in 1980 after a rewarding and successful 42-year career.

George was known by friends and family as a man with a warm smile, a gentle spirit and a teller of wonderful stories. He was a true gentleman in every sense of the word, who thought about others far more than himself. A man with profound faith in God, with his rosary always in his pocket, recited many times a day.

When asked about a great memory of his life, George said it was the day that he returned home after World War ll when the pilot came over the speaker of the plane and said, “Welcome home soldier.” Now George is home, having eternal peace and everlasting life with God. May he rest in peace.
