My first dentist when I came to Evanston was Dr. Dreebin. And, after his retirement it is Jeffrey, so I have been a patient of the Dreebins since 1981. I still remember Dr. Dreebin (Sr.)'s smile, his genuineness, his good humor, and his skills as a dentist. I do remember Suzanne as well, she was one of my students at Kellogg, and the tragedy of her passing, and how deeply it hurt Dr. Dreebin. A kind, gentle, wonderful man. May your soul rest in peace.

My deepest sympathy to the Dreebin family. Harold was my family dentist from his location at the old Wilmette Bank bldg. through Evanston to Winnetka. He was a gem, so kind and hard working. He really loved his family and had a great laugh.

Dr. Dreebin was our dentist for many years. We first encountered his caring and professionalism
soon after moving to Evanston when one of us trudged through the snow with two babies in tow to find relief from a toothache. That cemented our relationship with the Dreebin family dentists. We are so sorry for your loss.

We would like to send our deepest sympathy to the Dreebin family. We know Harold and Reva from our summer trips to South Haven, and we are been fortunate to know such a wonderful and kind person. Harold was always especially kind to our two young sons, and always had pleasant words and great times during fourth of July parties.

We will dearly miss Harold.

Reva, you and your family will be in our prayers.

We are so very saddened to hear of Harold's passing. I have such lovely memories of him -- from sitting at the grills together watching a storm come in over the lake, to his bringing me corned beef from Chicago, to the pool visits far too numerous to count as he was soaking while in the shade under his umbrella. (Ingenious.) He was supportive and kind and always a friend. Rob and Noah and I will truly miss seeing him every day we are in South Haven, but we will see him in our hearts. We will never ever forget him. May his memory be for a blessing. Love, Di and Rob

I want to extend my deepest sympathy to Dr. Dreebin's family at the loss of this wonderful man. He touched my heart as well as my family's during the 16 summers we all shared in South Haven. He was so kind and generous. He will be missed dearly by so many, especially his wonderful family. Love you, Harold! John and Mary Hendricks and family
