Tributes have been paid to Tayside medical specialist Dr Alan Gibb.
Alan George Gibb, born in Aberdeen in 1919, became a leader worldwide in the field of ear, nose and throat medicine.
Graduating from Aberdeen University in 1941, Dr Gibb served in Africa with the Royal Army Medical Corps, achieving the rank of Major and settling in Dundee in 1950.
A keen sportsman, he set up teaching departments in Malaysia, Hong Kong and Singapore after retiring as consultant surgeon for Tayside Region in the 1980s. He also lectured in the USA, Canada and Far East.
Dr Gibb spent 34 years working in Dundee and had been the otolaryngology consultant surgeon for Tayside for 1960, leading the ENT unit at Ninewells Hospital.
The one-time Crathie Church Choir member married Elisabeth and had two children, Andrew and Susan.
He had six siblings, who are all deceased, five of whom were also in the medical profession and two of whom were GPs in Aberdeen.
His parents were both medical practitioners in The Granite City and his mother Elizabeth was the first female GP in Aberdeen.
The centenarian remained active until his last two years, fishing as often as he could and skiing at the Lecht and Glenshee until he was 93 – having taken up the sport in Switzerland in 1951 – despite chipping a bone in his shoulder while doing so on his 80th birthday.
A keen golfer who had a handicap of three, having first picked up a golf club aged just five, Dr Gibb also completed 90 holes of golf on his ninetieth birthday, having won the Cullen Open in 1950.
Latterly residing in Ballater, Dr Gibb died on September 5 aged 101.
