Pittsburgh Tribune Review: Mt. Lebanon doctor's 'hands of gold' served country, family

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

When Judith Dickinson went on her first date with Dr. George Liebler, she found the young doctor, who was escorting her to the first Medallion Ball in 1964, to be a man of compassion.

"George Liebler was a gentleman, who also had a great sense of humor," said his wife, Judith Dickinson Liebler, whom he married in 1967.

Dr. George Andrew Liebler of Mt. Lebanon, a cardiothoracic surgeon at Allegheny General Hospital in the North Side, died of cancer on Thursday, May 7, 2009, in his home. He was 72.

Mrs. Liebler said her husband, as a surgeon, was always on call.

"If the phone rang in the middle of the night, George was ready to go," she said.

"And yet, when he could get away, he enjoyed traveling with our children, our grandchildren, and our friends," added Mrs. Liebler. "We took tours throughout the world, such as the time we toured England and Scotland."

Dr. Liebler, who was considered an excellent golfer, could be found on the greens of a number of area golf clubs, including the St. Clair Country Club in Upper St. Clair and the Pittsburgh Field Club in Fox Chapel.

Dr. Liebler's children knew that they could go to their father, despite his busy schedule, with their problems or frustrations.
