Walter H. Whitcomb MD 1928 - 2013

Walter H. Whitcomb MD

Tuesday, January 29, 2013
Dr. Whitcomb was ahead of his time. He saw the technological revolution coming and knew it would change everything. He turned his attention to “Medical Informatics” and electronic medical records. We were a little skeptical then, but he was right! Walt was definitely one of the good guys.

Walt epitomized the teacher, researcher, and clinician so rare in academic medicine today. He always had ideas, readily encouraged the aspiiring young medical researcher, and approached all with kindness, a sense of generosity, and humor. I always enjoyed him, first as a teacher, and then later as a faculty colleague at OUHSC.

Am so sorry to learn of Dr. Whitcomb's passing! He hired me into the VA Medical Center 40 years ago! He was a dear man and the Lord our God used him to bless me in my life here on earth. Such fun memories of my early VA career! Once he signed a note to me as "Chief of Staff; Chief, Hem/Onc; Mouse Anesthetist" (remember his research?)--so funny! I will never forget him or the kind things he did for me, and I will continue to treasure the metal sculptures he made for me. I miss him! May the Lord give his sweet family and friends comfort and peace. With love, Twila Davis Willard
