George Henry Emil Klindworth, 90, a longtime Williston resident, died suddenly at the Mercy Medical Center on Thursday, December 9, 2010. Another angel is in heaven with our Lord and Savior.

George Klindworth was born August 13, 1920 at his grandparents' farm near Fessenden, North Dakota to Carl and Pauline (Beck) Klindworth. He grew up on the family farm near Hogeland, Montana. He attended primary school near the farm home and graduated from Hogeland High School.

After military service, he returned to his former work and later became General Manager of the Equity Company's Grain Elevator and Bulk Oil Operations at Harlem, Hogeland and Turner, Montana.

In 1961 he went to work for the Mill Mutual Insurance Company as Field Representative in Western North Dakota and Eastern Montana. He served in that capacity for 24 ½ years.

He enjoyed traveling, camping in his earlier years, gardening, watching the stock and commodity markets and keeping up with current events.

He had a passion for reading, especially reading about history and autobiographies.

He enjoyed visiting about anything with anybody.

His biggest joy was getting together for family gatherings and watching his grandchildren grow up.
