George H. Radecki, age 80, of Chesterton, IN passed away on June 21, 2023. He was born in South Bend, IN on November 3, 1942 to Leo and Betty (Kujawski) Radecki. He was preceded in death by his parents, an older brother, John Radecki and John's wife, Stella, of London, Kentucky, and his younger son, Jason Radecki of Valparaiso, IN. He is survived by his older son, Timothy Radecki and his grandsons, Jay and Joshua, all of Las Vegas, NV. Also surviving him are his sisters, Rita Martino of Joliet, IL, Pauline Brockey of Goodyear, AZ, and Julie Napier of Chesterton, IN along with his brother, Marion Radecki of Mishawaka, IN, as well as many dear nieces and nephews.
He graduated from South Bend High School in 1961. He served in the U.S. Army from 1964-1966 as a Radio Relay Carrier Operator in the 127th Signal Division in South Korea. He was employed by Bethlehem Steel as a Motor Inspector B Electrician for 36 1/2 years. He was a member of St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Chesterton, IN.
He enjoyed running near his home along bike trails and in many races. His favorite marathons were the Glass City Marathon in Toledo, OH, the Chicago Marathon, and the Twin Cities Marathon in Minneapolis, MN which he ran with his brother, Marion. Their mother took her first airplane flight in order to watch her two sons run the marathon. He enjoyed competing in ballroom dancing. He also enjoyed fishing, golfing, and exercising at the local gym. He loved bike riding and long, jogging walks along the local bike trail, which ran right in front of his house. In his later years he enjoyed taking the nearby South Shore train into Chicago to walk around the many interesting venues, and talk to many people along the way.
He is now on his next, beautiful adventure.
