George died on Monday, April 23, 2001. Raised and educated in Utah and New York, he served as a missionary in the Central States Mission. In 1943, he answered the call of his country, serving in the Army Air Corps. He was married in 1946 in the Salt Lake Temple to Marjorie Gail Dreier, his devoted sweetheart.

Although professionally acquainted with the power of nuclear energy, he relied upon a higher power in joining with his wife to raise a family of six children, serving as a teacher, missionary and leader in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in many areas of the world. Enriched by a lifelong love of music, he organized, sang in and led under his baton a variety of community and church choirs, large and small.

George Dibb was 28 years old when World War II: Hiroshima, Japan is devastated when the atomic bomb "Little Boy" is dropped by the United States B-29 Enola Gay. Around 70,000 people are killed instantly, and some tens of thousands die in subsequent years from burns and radiation poisoning. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
