George Paul Strack, 88, of Indianapolis, passed away on Wednesday, April 17, 2019.  He was born on February 22, 1931 in Indianapolis to the late Fred C. and Helen M (Meyer) Strack. 

George graduated from Sacred Heart High School in 1949 and served in the United States Army during the Korean Conflict.  He worked for Link Belt for 40+ years, retiring in 1992.  George was a member of the Msgr.
