Obituary

Shorba, George Dennis Jr. Age 86, died peacefully January 28, 2019, at Sunrise Assisted Living in Minnetonka, MN. Preceded in death by beloved wife of 58 years, Margaret; parents, George and Bernice; and brother, Don. Survived by sister, Sharon Bergstrom; children, Jeff (David), Jill (Tom) Hansen, Jason (Kate), Jared (Cindy), and Joleen Fraser; and grandchildren, Jessica, Kelly, Kerri, Parker, Carter, Elise & Lauren.

George was a lifelong Minnesota resident leaving the state only to fulfill his military duty in the Korean War. He returned home to Chan-hassen where he met and married Margaret (Marge) in 1957. Shortly after attending Dunwoody Institute, he was employed by Minnesota's Department of Transportation where he worked until he retired. He was particularly fond of pointing out to friends and family all the road projects he had worked on over his long career. He also loved taking Marge and the family to their cabin on Crow Wing Lake near Brainerd where they enjoyed many summer days. He was a big fan of Minnesota's professional sports teams and his beloved Chanhassen Redbirds. In later years, he also grew very fond of Mystic Lake Casino where he spent many days with Marge earning the title 'King George' for all the winnings he took home.

Visitation will be Thursday, January 31 at 10:00 AM, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11:00 AM at St. Hubert Catholic Church, 8201 Main St., Chanhassen, MN. George will be laid to rest next to Marge at Ft. Snelling National Cemetery in a private ceremony at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to St. Hubert Catholic Church.
