George Walter Streeck, Jr., passed away peacefully on January 30, 2018 at Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice in Sheboygan Falls, WI, after a battle with cancer.

George was born in Van Nuys, CA, on April 2, 1945, just 24 days before his father was killed in Luzon in the battle of the Villa Verde Trail. The family then moved back to Plankinton, SD.

When George’s mother married Arthur Hagedorn, a railway express agent, the family moved to Lake City MN, and Baraboo, WI, and ended up in Wisconsin Dells, where George graduated from High School.

He joined the Air Force and served from 1963 through 1967, during which time he married Dolores Meltz.

George was restationed from Upper Michigan to Hickham AFB in Honolulu, where their first son, Perry, was born at Tripler Army Hospital. After discharge from the service, George attended UWStevens Point, where their second son, Joseph, was born, and he became a middle school history/geography teacher in Medford, WI.

After 14 years in the classroom, he earned his Master’s degree in administration and served as middle school principal in Baldwin, WI for 10 years, and later in Barron, WI for 6 years.

After retirement from public education, the couple moved to Plymouth, WI (to be near Perry and his wife, Lauri (Bristol) and, of course their grandchildren: Sam and Jake, who live in Bayside. George became the principal at Christ Child Academy in Sheboygan for 4 years. After retirement from CCA, he continued to substitute teach at Plymouth and Elkhart Lake schools and never lost his love of teaching. Students from all of the places where he made an impact have remembered him over the years and kept in touch and contacted him. It was a life well lived!
