George Estrem, son of Elven and Dorothy (Weston) Estrem was born on July 21, 1928 in Westbrook, Minnesota. During his teen years, George left home for San Francisco, California where he worked at a ship yard until moving back to St James, Minnesota. Upon his return he started a job at a record shop where he met the love of his life. George married Lorraine "Penny" Miller on June 1, 1946 in New Ulm, Minnesota. George was the Vice President of the Fulda Bank before moving to Nisswa, Minnesota. He and Penny returned to Slayton, Minnesota and started the Farmers Agency of Avoca, Minnesota where they both worked for 20 years. George retired and moved to Elbow Lake Minnesota where he worked with his son for seven years. George and Penny's last move was to Alexandria Minnesota in 2007. George was taken to heaven on August 23, 2013 while at the Knute Nelson Care Center in Alexandria at the age of 85.

Throughout his life, George was an entertainer. He loved to joke, tease and play his player-piano for everyone to sing along. He enjoyed many pastimes including fishing, hunting and golfing. He restored player-pianos and old cars and enjoyed antiques. George's greatest loves in life were God and his wife Penny, who he lived for.

He is survived by his wife Penny, five children: Gerry (Louise) Estrem, Tom (Barb) Estrem, Judy (Craig) Schultz, Jim (Lisa) Estrem and Jane (John) Lippert; ten grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and his half-brother Gary (Rita) Jadwin.
