George K. Ljaschenko passed away Tuesday, May 2, 2017, in Waukesha.

George was born April 12, 1952, on Coaldale, Pa. His family immigrated from Serbia in 1951 and George is the only child born in the United States.

George is survived by sisters Marija Gilligan and Bosilika Kulkusky; nephews Alex Gilligan, David Gilligan and George Kulkusky; nieces Tanja Wollenzien, Evon Gonsalves, Natalie Bersavage, Sonija Gierman and Deidre Warden, along with many grand-nieces and nephews.

George was a master chess player and a regular at the Waukesha Chess Club and he taught chess to anyone who wanted to learn, including his nephew David and his great-nephew Devin.

George was preceded in death by his parents, Kondrat and Zorka Ljaschenko; sister, Natasha Terriere, and Princess (the cat he had for 18 years). We will miss his sense of humor, his off-color jokes, M& Ms and sci-fi movies.
