A Florida cancer specialist who died Wednesday at age 92 was an assistant professor at the University of Georgia and had a strong reputation in the medical field.
Dr. William F. Siegel was born in Atlanta in 1918 and moved to Gainesville in the 1950s, where he taught at the local medical school and in a small medical clinic.
He later earned his doctorate at the university and joined a hospital team in the early 1960s.
He then returned to Atlanta to work as a cancer specialist and also was a volunteer on the campus of the university’s College of Medicine.
Dr Siegel died on the University campus in Atlanta, his family said.
He was surrounded by family and loved ones, the family said in a statement.
A memorial service for Dr Skeles will be held on Friday at 2 p.m. at the Georgia Institute of Technology campus, where the university has a campus hospital.
