BERK--Otto George, 82. Brooklyn native, talented athlete and outdoorsman, and proud Norwegian, Otto died December 21, 2012 from gallstone complications. He graduated from Poly Prep Country Day and Hobart College, where he set a lacrosse record by scoring three goals in 54 seconds. President of the Haywood-Berk Floor Company, Otto was also a long-time member of the N.Y.A.C., for whom he wrestled, and enjoyed grouse hunting with his beloved labradors at the Mashomack Club. Affable, hard-driving, and generous, he will be missed by his children Roger and Valerie; granddaughter Nellie; former wife Phyllis, and many others. A Memorial Service will be held January 19 at 3pm in the chapel at St. Bartholomew's Church in New York City.
