In Memoriam – George B. Maksin, Jr.
November 22, 1942 – August 3, 2019

In August of 2019, ASNT Pittsburgh lost a long time member and influencer within the NDT community. George Maksin was a Past Chairman, a long time Committe member and well known advocate for ASNT for many years. He had a hand in keeping ASNT Pittsburgh alive and in years when membership was on the decline, George supported, campaigned and promoted throughout the Pittsburgh community. Most in the NDT world knew him as the owner of George Consulting Services.

Below is his obituary and we have also attached the link to the funeral home where you can leave your condolences to his family. George will be missed by all.


George B. Maksin, Jr., 76, of Monaca, Pa., passed away Saturday, August 3, 2019, surrounded by his loving family and friends. Born November 22, 1942, in McKeesport, he was the eldest son of the late George B. Sr. and Betty (Kota) Maksin of Albion, Pa. He was owner of George Consulting Services. He is survived by his devoted wife of 56 years, Mary Jo (Lenze) Maksin; his three daughters, Deneen (Dean) gamble, Renee (Marty) Hernendez, Dana (Chris) Dugan; his sister, Barbara (Jim) Trocki; brother, Larry Maksin; six grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces, nephews and relatives.
