George was born on August 31, 1962 in Glen Head, NY to Gerda (Holst) Zimny and the late Botho Zimny. George graduated from high school, but when he tried college, he couldn’t stand being in a classroom while other guys were in the woods hunting. He was a true outdoorsman who loved learning about nature. George was an avid hunter and fisherman, making many hunting and fishing trips with his life partner, Carolyn. George could also fix anything and made friends with strangers everywhere he went.

His survivors include his mother, Gerda Zimny, his life partner, Carolyn Sovie, and her children, Dustin Sovie and Jessica Coulombe and her husband, Peter, a brother, Jim Zimny, a sister, Karin Vincent and her husband, Eric, and a niece, Riza Vincent.
