Born in Kansas City, Mo., George learned to fly in the US Navy, and served honorably in World War II and the Korean War as a naval aviator.
After graduating from the University of Denver with a degree in engineering, he joined TWA as a pilot flying as Captain on increasingly larger aircraft including the Lockheed Constellation to eventually the Boeing 747 on international routes from JFK International airport.
An avid golfer with a great sense of humor, George loved to fly and took responsibilities for passengers and crew seriously. The family is very grateful to George's loving friends and care team at Friendship Gardens.
Rest in Peace, Captain Borgmier
