Obituary

On March 29, 2021 our loving husband, father, grandfather and friend George Zukowski passed away at his home in Delaware after battling a long illness. 

George was born June 21, 1939 in Dublany, Poland. During WWII the family was forcefully taken to Germany to be put into the work force. In 1949 George and his parents Anna and Theodore immigrated to the US and settled in NYC.  It was in New York that George met Helen Kaminsky, they were married in 1960 and enjoyed 60 happy years together.

George served four years in the US Air Force and was stationed in Glasgow, Montana. After leaving the military, the family moved to North Brunswick NJ where they raised their two children Lisa and Greg. After retirement George and Helen relocated to Milford DE and lived across the street from their best friends of many years, John and Lorraine Reynolds.  George worked many years in the computer field as a technician. He later had a home improvement business with his best friend, John. George finished his career as the student housing maintenance manager for Rutgers University and retired in 2004.  

George enjoyed camping and the family visited many places in the US but his favorite place was Vermont. The family loved his amazing grilled chicken, campfires, fishing and listening to John Denver music. He was an avid Dallas Cowboys fan despite protests from family and friends who are mostly Giants fans. This made for some interesting Sundays. 

He is survived by his loving wife of 60 years Helen, his daughter Lisa and husband John, son Greg, grandsons Dan and Zack, granddaughter Jennie and her husband Michael, great granddaughter Giavanna, step grandchildren Jackie and Danny, brother-in-law Jule and his wife Carol. 

George will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

The family will receive visitors at Rogers Funeral Home, 301 Lakeview Ave, Milford from 1PM to 3PM on Saturday 4/10. A memorial service will be held at 3PM.

In lieu of flowers, donation in his name may be made to Delaware Hospice, 100 Patriots Way, Milford, DE 19963, or to the American Cancer Society, P.O. Box 22478, Oklahoma City, OK 73123.
