George Walmsley MD (1926 - 2015):
On June 6, Dr George Walmsley passed away.  A native Bay Stater, he graduated from Rice in 1948 with a degree in Biology.  A standout running back at Rice, he was a four-year football letterman (1944-45-46-47), he won the 1944 George Martin Award and he was a member of the 1947 Orange Bowl team that blanked Tennessee, 8-0.  Also, he was inducted into the Rice Athletic Hall of Fame in 1973. 

In 1954, he received his medical degree from UTMB Galveston and then set up his Family Practice in Baytown.  He remained a pillar of the Baytown medical community for 40 years.  After retirement, he enjoyed gardening and spending time with family at Lagniappe.  He is survived by, among others, his wife of 63 years, Betty Bob '48.  Click here for the Chronicle obituary.
