Obituary

Captain George F. Martin, (M.D.), USN Ret., '77, passed away peacefully at home on June 2, 2018 at the age of 85.

George was born in San Francisco, California, and raised in the Bay Area.

George attended the University of California Berkeley and was a member of TKE. Following graduating from Berkeley he went on to receive his Medical Degree from the University of California San Francisco Medical Center. Upon receiving his degree, he continued his training in Neurological Surgery through the United States Navy. He achieved the rank of Captain, and throughout his Naval career he served with honor and distinction for over twenty-years. He enjoyed the camaraderie of his fellow members of the Bohemian Club of San Francisco.

After retirement from the Navy he began a long and successful private practice. Doctor Martin pioneered the idea of neurosurgical trauma centers in the East Bay to better focus patient care at centralized locations during times of extreme injury. Rapid response teams of highly qualified medical personnel were on standby for immediate response.

George is survived by his loving wife, Vickie, of San Antonio, Texas. Daughter Amanda Allcock of Rapid City, South Dakota. Sons David Maudsley (Christina) of San Antonio, Texas, and Daryl Maudsley (Thalia) of New York, New York. Sister Sally Behnke of Fort Collins, Colorado. Grandchildren Ashley Hansen (Rick) of Aberdeen, South Dakota, Amy Allcock of Rapid City, South Dakota, Hannah Maudsley of San Antonio, Texas, and Samantha Maudsley of San Antonio, Texas. Great Grandchildren Blake, Evan, and Heidi Hansen of Aberdeen, South Dakota. Uncle Walter Hall of Saratoga, California. He is survived by many cousins, nieces, and nephews.

George was preceded in death by his parents George F. Martin, Sr. and Clara May Martin, and his sister Ann Martin Howard.

George was a man of honor and loyalty, demonstrated by his many years of service to his country. He was a man of compassion and dedication, demonstrated by his many years as a Neurological Surgeon treating patients and helping to restore patients from incalculable injuries, and improve their quality of life. He was a man of music, enjoying playing his piano at concert level, and attending Operas or Symphonies. He had a long love of Lionel Trains after he was given his first train at the age of 2. Doctor Martin was a man of strength and character, a calm and steady presence.

And finally, he was a man of joy and love demonstrated by his positive outlook on life, his cheerful laugh, delight in spending time with his family, and the always present twinkle in his eye when he looked at his beloved Vickie. George and Vickie were a couple sharing immeasurable love for each other.
