George Ivan Blonsky Jr. 64, of Pinehurst, NC, passed away Wednesday, May 13, 2015 at his home. Born May 7, 1951 in New Brunswick, New Jersey, George was a strong-willed, talented, and accomplished man who completed many diverse projects during his 20 year career as a Sr. Vice President at Pinehurst Resort.

Laying in his hammock was a favorite past time, and he was an incredible basketball player who played throughout high school and his early college years.
