OBITUARY: Dr. Glenn Gibb

May 30, 1947 – Dec. 14, 2011

Dr. Glenn Gibb passed away on Dec. 14, 2011, after a 6-month illness.

Glenn was born on May 30, 1947 in Boise, Idaho. The first 12 years of his life were spent in Idaho where he learned to fish, hunt and golf. During his High School and college years Glenn resided in the Bay Area where he attended UC Berkeley, graduating in 1969 with a Bachelor’s degree. In 1973 Glenn earned a Doctorate in Dental Surgery from UCLA and continued his education at UCSF earning a speciality degree in Orthodontics in 1975.

Spurred by his love for outdoor activities and adventures, Glenn moved to South Lake Tahoe in 1975 where he established his orthodontic practice and continued to fish, hunt and golf, as well as ski, sail, and enjoy the lake from any and all types of watercraft. Dr. Gibb loved to create beautiful smiles; he was South Lake Tahoe’s only fulltime orthodontist for 30 years. Dr. Gibb was a member of the Barton Hospital Medical Staff, on call to handle orthodontic emergencies throughout the tenure of his practice.

Glenn is survived by his wife Cathy, daughter Rebecca, sons Scott and Garrett, granddaughters Teagan and Jane, and brothers Bob and Greg. In lieu of flowers, Glenn would like to be honored by a contribution to the National Marrow Donor Program, or a cancer-related organization of one’s choice. A remembrance of Glenn’s life will be held Saturday January 7, 2012, at 2:00 p.m. at Edgewood Golf Course.
