Murray Gott of Raleigh, NC, formerly of Boynton Beach, FL and Staten Island, NY, died Tuesday, September 13, 2017. Murray was a veteran of the US Air Force and then went on to become a dentist in Staten Island, where he enjoyed a successful practice for 30 years. During that time, he dedicated a great deal of his time to the Second District Dental Society of NY, an organization that represented dentists in Brooklyn and Staten Island. In 1982, he served as President of this district and brought his expertise in the field to the Greater New York Dental meeting, one of the largest and most prestigious meetings in the nation. When Murray retired from dentistry, he moved to Boynton Beach, FL where he continued to be an avid golfer and enjoyed traveling the world. He also loved going out to dinner and the movies, and spending time with friends and family.
