SERVING VIRGINIA AND HIBBING AREAS FOR OVER 100 YEARS

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.

    I am so sorry to hear of George’s passing. I enjoyed talking with him, whenever I ran into him. He helped me with the ins and outs of having a prosthetic, after I lost my leg. So much invaluable info, so I knew what to expect and watch for. George always had such a big heart and was always so proud of his wife and sons. He literally beamed when he spoke of you all. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of loss and sadness. May George rest in peace and forever watching his family with the love and caring, he had while he was alive.

    So sad to hear this. I loved George as a teacher, he kept things fun. I always enjoyed running into him around town and discussing so many topics the last 25yrs. He always had a big smile and such a great personality. He will be missed.

    We remember your dad fondly. We lived at the top of the hill, 1 NE 11th St. Mr. Miskulin walked by almost every day in decent weather and stopped for a chat if we were in sight. We enjoyed our visits with him. Our condolences to your family on your loss.

    I am sorry to hear about the loss of George Miskulin. I have known him from having delivered the Duluth News Tribune to his home in all kinds of weather from January 2001 until he moved into the nursing home. He was also a member of the Knights of Columbus Chisholm Council #3539, which I am also a member.

    David, Kevin and Carrie,
    I just saw this news of George’s passing. I am so sorry for your loss. George was a great person always sharing a funny story and enjoyed visiting with the guys. My Dad loved his company and they shared many stories over the years. George was my drivers ed. teacher and he took credit for my 150,000 accident free miles during my years as a cab driver in Minneapolis. He got a kick out of those crazy stories of the characters I had in my back seat over the years. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. George was a real gem! We all were so lucky to know him.
