George Francis Miskulin
01/29/1926 - 04/28/2019
George Miskulin, 93, died peacefully at home with family by his side on April 28, 2019. A private memorial will be held for the family on a later date. Arrangements are with Range Funeral Home in Hibbing.
He was born on January 29, 1926 to Matt and Helen (Vucicich) Miskulin in Hibbing. George was a graduate of Hibbing High School. He went on to obtain his Bachelors Degree from Bemidji State University and a Masters Degree in Business Education from St. Cloud State University. George began his 38 year teaching career in Oklee Minnesota, then went on to Duluth, and finally retired from teaching at Chisholm High School in 1987.
George had various jobs besides teaching school. He directed Community Education in Chisholm, taught drivers education, and sold real estate for many years. His greatest joy was being “CEO” of Miskulin Construction, and helping his sons with their business. George was a great role model for his sons and guided many of their decisions. He would never pass an opportunity to discuss the day’s news with the guys at the coffee shop. There was nothing George liked better than an interesting conversation with a good friend, although he could have an engaging conversation with anyone. He also enjoyed snowmobiling, camping, and fishing with friends at Lake of the Woods. George will be missed by many, but forgotten by few.
George is survived by his wife of 62 years, Carolyn (Richardson) Miskulin, his two sons, David and Kevin Miskulin; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Matt and Helen (Vucicich) Miskulin; and his sister, Rose (Miskulin) Matonich.
The family would like to thank Lisa Corradi, Dave Pajunen, Cheryl Madrinich, Bill Taramelli, Honey & Adam Larson, Bill Loushine, Michele Harlander, Dr. Thompson, Hospice, and numerous family & friends that often visited.
