George Carmin grew up on the family ranch where his father homesteaded and operated a rodeo livestock company. He graduated from Douglas High School and Chadron State College, where he earned a degree in education and starred on the basketball team. Following graduation he taught school at Bill and LaGrange and played semipro basketball for the Red Devils.

In 1941 he joined the Army Air Corps, serving as captain during World War II in the European theater. After the war he moved back to the family ranch and taught school in Douglas, where he met and married Ruby Edson, also a Douglas teacher. They raised four daughters on the ranch near Orin.

For 18 years Mr. Carmin taught and coached in Glendo, where he led his teams to championship titles in football, basketball and track. He taught history and math and served for a time as principal. The High School gym at Glendo still bears his name, Carmin Gymnasium. He returned to Douglas High School as athletic director in 1968, finishing his education career in 1975. In 1985, he was included in the first group of inductees into the Coaches Hall of Fame. His picture and biography are displayed in the UW Arena Auditorium.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Lem Carmin in 1972 and Pauline Carmin on Oct. 17, 1990; sisters Phyllis Lyons, Dorothy Kroschel and infant Mary Belle Carmin; and brother, Joe Carmin.
