George Pinski 10/04/2020

George A. Pinski, Jr., age 71 of River Falls, WI, died suddenly on Sunday, October 4, 2020 at his home. George was born the son of George, Sr. and Josephine (Dolney) Pinski on January 11, 1949 in St. Paul, MN. He grew up in St. Paul graduating from Kellogg High School in 1967. George took several classes at the U of M, was a member of First Covenant Church in River Falls, and worked as a Systems Engineer at Cannon Equipment in Rosemount, MN, retiring in 2014.

George enjoyed spending time with his children, taking them on road trips and camping, coaching their youth soccer games, hosting weekly family game nights, and making them laugh. He was an avid reader, amateur movie critic, master of bad jokes, outdoor enthusiast, and the biggest Packer fan, and he recently took an interest in genealogy.

George was the most selfless man. He devoted his life to his children, and was the primary caregiver to his two youngest children who have disabilities. He took great joy in being there for his children in any way he could. He felt his children were his greatest accomplishments and was very proud of them.

George will be lovingly remembered by his mother, Josephine Pinski; his children Jeremiah (Jennifer) Pinski, Nicholas Pinski, Jonathan Pinski, and Abigail Pinski; his brothers Joseph (Judy) Pinski and Frank (Bonnie) Pinski; his niece and nephews; and his former wife and mother of his children, Susan (VanBeek) Zeitz. He was preceded in death by his father George Pinski, Sr. and his sister Judith Pinski.

Cremation services provided by Bakken-Young Funeral & Cremation Services. A private family memorial service will be held at a later date.

    Knew and worked with George at several companies over the years. Going to miss the phone conversations that we have and had over the last few years with a great friend.

    George was one of six of us in a small men’s accountability group that met regularity several years ago. He was very dedicated to his faith and his family. Take comfort that George is now in the presence of his Lord Jesus Christ.

      Thank you, Steve. The men’s group and his faith were both very important parts of his life.
