He was born July 15, 1927, in Pulaski, the eighth of nine children born to Anton and Mary Brzozowski, who preceded him in death.

He was special step-grandfather to Sean (Heather) Kras and Peter (Michelle) Kras and their families. He also leaves behind many nieces, nephews and friends.
George was a soul who was full of kindness. He was a skillful man, a family man and a model of clean and honest living. That model will live on through the souls of his family and his spirit will walk with anyone whose life he touched. He was known and respected by many. George was a welder, employed by the Milwaukee County Parks Service Department for 35 years. He served as a Sea Bee in the U.S. Navy during World War II. He was a member of St. Vincent de Paul Parish in Milwaukee for 35 years, where he served as usher and Eucharistic minister, and was a member of the Holy Name Society. He generously volunteered his talents and his time to the parish. He was currently a member of St. Frances Cabrini Parish in West Bend.
Visitation will be from 10 a.m.-noon Saturday, Dec. 9, at St. Frances Cabrini (1025 S. Seventh Ave. West Bend) with a Mass of Christian Burial at noon. Private entombment will be in Mt. Olivet Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorials in George’s name to the American Heart Association would be appreciated.
