Obituary for George D. Tkach

George D. Tkach, 89, of Uxbridge, passed away Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at the Beaumont Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, Northbridge, MA.

He was the husband of Gloria M. Tkach. They had been married for 56 years.

George had been an engineer at Raytheon for a number of years before retiring. He was also employed at Data General Corporation, where he developed the Corporate Resources Advance Planning System, or CRAPS, for short (showing his wry sense of humor!), and at RCA, where he was an early innovator of computer magnetic-memory cores.

George was born in Linden, NJ, the son of the late Michael and Susan Tkach. He served in the U.S. Air Force during WWII working on radar systems and received his BS in Electrical Engineering from the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Before moving to Uxbridge, George had lived for 25 years in Pawleys Island, SC, and for many years in Framingham, MA before that.

George enjoyed fishing. While living in South Carolina, he was nicknamed “Mr. Flounder” because of his uncanny ability to always reel one or more in. He was also a charter member of the Framingham chapter of the Massachusetts B.A.S.S. Federation. He was an avid golfer, playing three times a week with the Men’s League of the Founders Club at Pawleys Island.

In addition to his wife Gloria, he is survived by a son, George of Framingham, a daughter, Debra and her husband Paul of Uxbridge, and a granddaughter, Kimberly and her fiancé both of Milford. He was predeceased by two brothers, Andrew and John, and a sister, Susan.

A memorial service with Military Honors will be held Friday, May 4, 2018 at 2:00 PM, at the BUMA-SARGEANT FUNERAL HOME, 42 Congress Street, Milford, MA.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Salmon VNA & Hospice Care, 37 Birch Street, Milford, MA 01757 or to Dana-Farber Cancer Center, c/o Milford Regional Healthcare Foundation, 14 Prospect Street, Milford, MA 01757.
