OBITUARY

George Svorka

November 7, 1944March 3, 2021

George Svorka III passed away on March 03, 2021.

Son of George Svorka II and Edna Muzoleski, and brother to Georgeann - George was an astute fisherman, doting father, experienced electrician, and a lifelong resident of Greenwich, Connecticut. Of his many passions, none were greater than his love of the sea - he was a true Hemingway of his time. Having survived the draft of the Vietnam War, George was able to pursue his career as an electrician, creating a lifelong passion that would further instill the pride that comes with working with one's hands.

George joins his wife, Dale Svorka, in the heavenly beyond, and is survived by his two daughters - Kristen and Alissa, and his two grandchildren - Stella and Orion.

A viewing will be held at Leo P. Gallagher Funeral Home in Greenwich on Friday March 12th from 9:30-11am, and service from 11-11:30am. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Save the Sound (http://savethesound.org) to continue the stewardship of the sea he so greatly loved.

Dear Kristen and Alissa,
I was so very sorry to learn of Dad's passing. He was a great fellow with a wonderful smile and warm personality. He joins Dale and his cousin, my husband Cliff, in Heaven. My sincere sympathies to you both, you are in my prayers. My best, Judy Barber

Kristen and Alissa my sincere condolences in the passing of your Dad.
I had the pleasure to know and to work along side of George for many years. He was a unique individual always had an interesting story or fact to share with everyone.
He spoke of both of you many times during those years as you were growing up and one could tell how proud he was to be your Dad.
He will be missed by all.
