Edward Marvin Malashock

March 27th, 1923 – May 10, 2022

While Dr. Edward Malashock is no longer with us, the memories of kindness, love and devotion he showed will be with us forever.

Dr. Malashock had a storied medical career that spanned seven decades. After earning his medical degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center, he served in the US Army Medical Corps in the Philippines in 1946. After serving, he briefly practiced medicine in St. Louis and New York before coming home to Omaha. In 1965, Dr. Malashock performed the first two kidney transplants in Nebraska. It was then that he joined the UNMC faculty as a clinical professor of surgery urology. He would go on to serve as President of Clarkson Hospital Medical Staff, Metropolitan Omaha Medical Society and the Nebraska Urological Society.

While his career in medicine was one to be proud of, his greatest sense of pride was his family. In the story of Ed there were two main characters: Ed and Sally. Of Dr. Malashock’s 99 years on earth, he spent 74 of them side by side with the love of his life. They had ambitions to travel the world, be contributing members to their community and raise a beautiful family. Together they accomplished all three. They saw every country you could want to see, were leaders in the Omaha community and raised three children, Mark, Jim, and Jan, with love and pride. Of all of Dr. Malashock’s accomplishments, he would argue that his greatest was being there for Sally at the end of her life. When she passed three years ago, he was there holding her hand, kissing her forehead and cherishing every last minute he had with her.

For those who had the privilege of knowing Dr. Malshock, the memories will be enduring. Memories such as his weekly meet ups at the Bagel Bin, his endless cups of coffee at dinner, the extra hours he stayed late at the hospital making sure his patients felt cared for or even sitting in Memorial Stadium for a Husker game humming the tune of every song the band played. For many though, the memory that will be brightest is the memory of his smile. He loved people, and the warm embrace and genuine love he showed others has left a mark on so many.

Dr. Malashock received numerous awards including the 2009 Nebraska Medical Center Legends Award, the 2002 College of Medicine Alumni Association’s Distinguished Alumnus Award and the Outstanding Physician Award. He is included on the Wall of honor at the UNMC Michael F. Sorrell Center for Health Science Education. The Chair of Urologic Surgery at Nebraska Medicine is named for Ed and Sally Malashock, as is the atrium of the Davis Global Center on the Nebraska Medicine campus.

Dr. Malashock is preceded in death by wife, Sally; parents Jay and Ruth Malashock; brother Stanley Malashock; and son-in-law Bob Egermayer.

He is survived by his children: Mark Malashock (Deborah), Jim Malashock, Jan Egermayer; Grandchildren: Julie (Ari Rabin-Havt), Matt Egermayer, Scott Egermayer (Tristar), Joshua, Joseph and John Malashock; and brother Robert (Norma) Malashock.
