George Richard McKibbin, 71, of rural Westby, passed away on Sun., Sept. 20, 2020, at Vernon Memorial Hospital. George was born on Sept. 24, 1948, in Tokyo, Japan, to Carlyle and Katherine (Beall) McKibbin.
In his early years, George travelled with his family to various locations around the U.S. and South Pacific. His father was a career military officer.
George graduated from Viroqua High School in 1967. On June 5, 1971, he married Dianne Davidson. He graduated from UW-Whitewater in 1980 with a business degree with a computer emphasis. He worked very hard taking classes while working full-time at the university. After leaving Whitewater, George & Dianne lived in West Salem for a few years and then moved to rural Westby to the home that George had designed - where he was still living at the time of his death. He worked for various companies and was the owner of Three Rivers Computer Center in La Crosse for a number of years.
George was an intelligent, caring and loving man, good husband, good father and grandfather, and good friend, who loved his family very much.
Through the years, he was very involved with his beloved Bethany Lutheran Church in Esofea, where his great-grandparents were among the founders of the church. George held different offices on the church council, including president of the council for many years, treasurer, and Sunday School superintendent, to name a few.
The light of his life were his two sons, Adam and Mark.
George is survived by his wife of 49 years, Dianne; sons Adam (Carissa) and Mark; granddaughter Adelaide and grandson Monty; sister Karen (Ron) Morris of MO; sister Jane (Dave) Reschke of AZ; brother John of MO; sister-in-law Diane of CA; brother-in-law Dennis (Linda) Davidson; sister-in-law Cindy Stellner; and brother-in-law Craig Davidson; and many nephews & nieces.
He was preceded in death by his parents, and his brothers Mike & Wayne.
