Obituary for George Czernienko

Loving Son and Brother
Chemical Engineer

George Czernienko, 64, of Lowell, formerly of Chelmsford, died peacefully at home on January 12, 2021.

Born July 2, 1956, he received his early education in Lowell schools, and graduated from Lowell High School with the Class of 1974 as a member of the National Honor Society. George entered UMass Lowell, and graduated with a degree in Chemical Engineering in 1978.

An outstanding pitcher and hitter, he played baseball for the city All-Star Team. He was also an avid golfer and tennis player who entered many city tournaments with his brother Nick. He was a caddy from the age of twelve at the Vesper Country Club, and was the proud recipient of the Francis Ouimet Scholarship.

While working as a lead engineer for Mobile Solar Energy Corporation, he developed a unique method of fabricating solar cells and was granted a patent for this development. He later worked as a mathematics instructor at Greater Lowell Technical High School where one of his students won a prestigious state math competition.

For many years, George lived in Chelmsford with his soul mate, Mary Lou McCarthy, and their two adopted dogs, Ebony, a black lab, and Buddy from Texas. Sadly, Mary passed away in 2017.

He is survived by his siblings, Mary Ann Fraser of Lowell, Tasoula Czernienko of North Chelmsford, and Nicholas Pelletier of Lowell, a nephew, Matthew Fraser and his fiancée Colleen Parrington and their children Aubrey and Teagan Fraser. He also leaves a dear friend and colleague, James Lyons, of North Billerica. George was predeceased by his mother, Sophie (Paleologos) Pelletier, and a brother, Alexander Czernienko.

Funeral Services were private. Friends who wish may make memorial donations in his name to the Lowell Humane Society, 951 Broadway St., Lowell, MA 01854. Arrangements in the care of the Morse-Bayliss Funeral Home, Lowell. Please visit George’s life tribute at
