George Berscheid December 21, 1944- June 7, 2012 The sudden and unexpected death of Mr. George Berscheid of Humboldt, SK occurred at Humboldt District Hospital, on Thursday, June 7, 2012. He was 67 years of age. George was born on December 21, 1944, to Joseph and Matilda (nee Hartl) Berscheid at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, Humboldt, SK. His early childhood years were spent at home on the family farm in the Lake Lenore district. He began his elementary education at Lake Lenore. After the premature death of his father, his mother moved into Humboldt with her two sons, George and Roger. George completed Grade 8 at St. Dominic School in Humboldt and then worked on the Pape farm. Eventually, he also worked as a brakeman for the Canadian National Railway, driving heavy equipment in the construction industry, and as a mechanic for the City of Humboldt. Most recently, George was employed at Koenders in Englefeld and at Del-Air in Humboldt. He retired in 2010. A perfectionist and natural-born mechanic, George loved spending time in his shop building and rebuilding motors and various other vehicle projects.
