George (Yun Ming) Tung was born on November 29, 1924 in a small village near Mukden, Mancheria, China. He passed away on December 28, 2016 after 92 years full of life.  He was predeceased by his loving wife of more than 50 years, Marion V. Tung (Bigelow).  He is survived by sons Lein, Andrew and Stephen, and his daughter, Alicia, their spouses and seven grandchildren.  George held degrees in law and economics and served the State of Colorado for more than 25 years, including 18 years as the Chief of Economic Research, in the governor’s office. He was honored with a Tribute from the Colorado State Senate for his accomplishments.

George enjoyed the outdoors and took his children on many adventures in the US and abroad. His devotion to his family and support gave his children many opportunities for further education and to embrace his love of the outdoors and travel. He was a prolific reader and skilled researcher. Even late in life, George’s sense of social justice remained strong as he often commented on the human condition both locally and abroad.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to be sent to the National Park Service and Denver Botanic Gardens.

A memorial service will be held at Three Trees Chapel, 13416 West Arbor Place, Littleton, Colorado at 3:00 PM on Sunday, January 1, 2017.
