Born on Jan. 31, 1958, in Chester, he was the son of Tamara Huzva Zacharkiw and the late Jaroslaw Zacharkiw. He graduated from Widener University in 1979 with a bachelor’s degree in engineering.

George spent most of his career as an expert witness in the construction industry working for Kellogg Corporation and Navigant Consulting. He was a member of the board of directors of Brandywine Valley Scenic Byway Commission and enjoyed doing home projects for his family and electronics.

“He enjoyed solving problems as most engineers do, but honestly the favorite part of all his engineering and consulting jobs while working for Air Products in Allentown, Kellogg Corporation and Bohdan Associates in Colorado and Navigant Inc. in Pennsylvania, was exploring new cultures and finding the finest sushi restaurants as he traveled the USA and Europe,” said his wife of 34 ½ years. “George always viewed his professional life of travel to new sites as an adventure.”

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his daughter, Krysta, and her husband, Shawn; his son, Jonathan, and his wife, Erin; grandchildren Sofia, Jack, Jackson, and Eva; and two brothers, Steve and Pete.
