Dr. George came to work with Dr. Matsan about 17 years ago. I used to bring my little baby girl with me to work on Friday's when Dr. Matsan was gone. Dr. George loved seeing Hannah. We talked about this for years. Wonderful memories of a GREAT man!!!
My last conversation with him involved his experiences in WW2. I had so much respect and love for George. He will be missed. Love to you all!!!

George- or "Uncle George" - was always so kind, generous, and welcoming. He was my first and best dentist that I ever had. My regret is that our families did not spend more time with each other. George and Nancy were always so supportive and kind- the best family anyone could wish for! On behalf of all the Lasleys -I wish the MacGibbon family our deepest condolences at this time. Love and blessings always, Susan Lasley Saly

I have never known any individual as unique as my Uncle George. He was intelligent, witty,and oh so funny, a true gentleman in every sense of the word. I will miss him so very much.

George's father was my first Dentist as they were the back door neighbors to my Grandmother who lived on the corner of Logan and Mount Curve in Minneapolis. George became my dentist right after he joined his fathers practice in the Medial arts building and He was my dentist until he retired a few years ago. I always looked forward to our visits, when I had my appointments. An unusual attitude considering it was a dentist appointment. We also shared many stories about Alexandria as my family still has their cottage on Lake Darling. He was a joy to be with and he will be missed. My prayers are with his family in their time of loss.

What a wonderful man! My regret is not spending as much time with you as I wish I could have. Our time together at the lake was pure joy! Uncle George, you will be missed by us and so many others.
