Requesting a school holiday from Governor Alfred Savage
MAHANGER, MD, VIBERT ANTHONY It is with immense sorrow and regret that the sisters and brothers and their spouses, of Dr. Vibert Anthony Mahanger – Yvonne (Claude), Lorraine (Roy), Veronica, Dereck, Barbara (Andrew) and Patrick (Kevin) - announce his passing in Boynton Beach, Florida, on October 21, 2018. Vibert was born on February 29, 1936, in Georgetown, British Guiana (now Guyana). He was the cherished son of the late Juliette and Joseph Mahanger and much-loved brother of the late Joseph, Romeo, Leonard and Therese Marie. Vibert left BG in 1956 to study medicine in the US. He received his BS from Grinnell College, Iowa and his MD from the University of Rochester, NY, interning at Strong Memorial in Rochester. He was a solo family practitioner in Churchville, NY, for nearly 30 years – sometimes serving three generations of one family. In 2004 he became a Compensation and Pensions physician at the VA Out-Patient Clinic in Fort Myers, FL, where he practiced for some two more years until his retirement. A visionary who foresaw the future of electronic medical records systems, Dr. Mahanger designed and implemented in his Churchville practice his own innovative computer records platform, which he called E-SCALPEL, to reflect comprehensive input from his patients, other doctors, hospitals and health care organizations, thereby maximizing efficient and effective patient care. Vibert was loved and will be missed by many other family members and friends, including his nieces and nephews and their spouses, his great-nieces and nephews, his cousin Patricia (Bert) and his dear childhood friend June Ann.
