I only shared a narrow part of George’s life; tennis. George would occasionally come to Beaver Falls and play tennis with my father, Edwin Clarke, President of Geneva College who previously had won the CO state singles when he was in graduate school, my sister who later played #1 women’s tennis at Arizona state and me. My partner and I won the PIAA state high school doubles championship in 1963. George was a remarkable tennis player especially given that basketball was apparently his primary sport. George and Harold Matheson from Koppel were the best in their age group at that time. George was a very competitive, kind and accomplished gentleman. It was my privilege to have known him.
Mr.Hromanik had such a profound influence on me. He was a special man at a special time for me and many others in the class of 1965. Thank you George
Uncle George will be missed. He always had a quick and funny response and was fun to be around. My thoughts and prayers are with Aunt Wynne, Tracy, and Paul.
Mr. Hromanik was one of the best teachers that I had. I learned so much about botany, types and family of trees and plants. Just to name a few. To this day I go online and research plants, trees and vegetables He taught me the difference between a true or false plants are subtle and if you don't know the difference it can be life threatening. I will always remember him. Denise.
Mr. Hromanik was a fabulous Western Beaver teacher who encouraged and was instrumental in many of his students going into the medical fields. My daughter, Michelle was one of them. He taught her to love the medical field she is in and we will always be grateful for his leadership and concern for his students and others. Rest in peace Mr. Hromanik, you were a Godsend to the students and parents of Western Beaver. God will say, "A Job well done, you loved your students and teaching, I am pleased".
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.
Wynn: Sorry to heard about your loss.
I want to convey my sincere sympathy to the family on his passing. He was, in my eyes, a brilliant teacher and no nonsense kind of guy. You studied and you learned, but in retrospect there was a sense of humor that was lost on me in 10th grade youth. I was in his class the day Kennedy was shot. A moment in history that stays forever. I cheered for the many basketball teams he coached during my tenure at Western Beaver HS as a cheerleader. I was a Popcorn girl and for the life of me can not remember how that came about. And I will always remember how he was admired, respected and loved by his students. His passing touched my heart, and how even to this day I remember so many things I learned in his classes. Some were biology, and others were how to be the best you can be. He was a good man and an amazing teacher. "Life's tasks all done, He sleeps."
Wynne, We at your water aerobics class at the"Y" were saddened to hear of your great loss. Please know that you are in our hearts and prayers. We are looking forward to your return to class when you are able. We miss your smile.
One of my favorite teachers at Western Beaver. I still remember Mr: Hromanik's biology class to this day. He had such a sense of humor, but at the same time so full of knowledge. You have my deepest sympathies. And I really hated dissecting the eyes from frogs and fish. Ewww! Thanks for all the great lessons! RIP.
I used to play tennis with George. We had many good times.

My heartfelt condolences to the family... Many years ago I had the honor and privilege of being in one of his advanced biology classes..an extraordinary teacher..I have many great memories ... Still makes me smile!....God Bless you and your family. Lucky you are to be family to this wonderful man.
My sympathies in your loss. I will always remember Mr. Hromanik as one of my favorite teachers at Freedom High School.
