Doc Whitney

George “Doc” Whtiney

George “Doc” Whitney was a treasured figure in Orange for several decades. His death on February 21, 2013, in Brattleboro, VT took the town by shock, as many had just watched him cross the finish line at the Chilly Chili Run 7 weeks earlier.

Different residents remember him for different things: his involvement in town government; his veterinary practice; affection for snakes; as a 5k runner; for his beautiful house on the hill next to Lake Whitney; but for sure everyone knew him for just being Doc Whitney.

Doc was a colorful guy. During road races, you could see him coming from a third of a mile away with his signature neon orange knit hat, mismatched socks (Yes, that was on purpose).

His daughters invite everyone to join them in a celebration of his life at the Paugusset Club, 1 Club Road, Orange on April 27 from 1 to 5 p.m.

Dress is casual, because that’s the way George would have dressed.

Anyone attending wearing matching socks will be asked to make a $10 donation to the Orange Country Fair, one of Doc’s passions.

Doc’s family asks that attendees write their personal recollections Doc and give it to them for inclusion in a family book.
