Packers former team physician dies at 91

Posted by Mike Spofford on March 11, 2013 – 5:25 pm

slide-006Eugene S. Brusky, the Packers team physician for nearly three full decades, from 1962 to 1990, died last Thursday at the age of 91.

A general practitioner, Brusky was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 1987. He was the youngest of 13 children in his family, and he and his wife raised 14 children of their own.

“The Packers family was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. Eugene Brusky, the Packers’ team physician for 28 seasons (1962-90),” Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy said in a statement. “Dr. Brusky was a pioneer in the world of NFL team physicians. Under his leadership, the Packers’ medical and training facilities became an NFL model for the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries. Dr. Brusky was locally and nationally respected for his work and he was instrumental in the development of the League’s medical organization, the NFL Physicians Society. His extensive career and accomplishments will be a lasting legacy in Packers history.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Dr. Brusky’s family during this difficult time.”

    God speed, Dr. Brusky, and prayers to the entire Brusky family. My mother (the former Naomi A. Tucholski, of Hoffa Park, WI) was Eugene’s cousin, and your extended family (Ebert’s) from Texas grew up spending summers in Wisconsin, and are life-long Packers fans, and send our condolences and best wishes to all who knew and loved him.
