OBITUARY

Jack William Shives

December 16, 1928September 9, 2020

Jack William Shives, age 91, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 9, 2020 in Tustin California. He was born on December 16, 1928, in Summer Shade, Kentucky and was a longtime resident in Orange County, California.

Jack is survived by his 93-year-old sister Alene Bowman and his 4 Children: Jenifer Gregory, Kenneth Shives, Joseph “Shane” Shives and Dana Evans. Jack has 13 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren with 2 more on the way.

Jack graduated from Summer Shade High School in 1946. Right after his High School graduation, Jack enlisted in the United States Army where he served in the Korean War. While Jack was stationed in Yokohama Japan, he met his beautiful wife Kyoko Fukuda Shives. Sadly, in June 1985, Kyoko suddenly died while visiting her dying mother in Japan. It was years later that Jack remarried Ann Pham and although that marriage did not last, their relationship did as they stayed close throughout the years. As a man wanting to serve his country and community, Jack pursued a career in Healthcare. While in the Army, Jack became a Radiology Technician and later went on to become the Director of Radiology at Kaiser Permanente. Jack loved returning to his home state of Kentucky to visit his sister, family and friends. He also enjoyed watching all types of sports and old country western shows. Jack spent his last 17 years living with his son Shane and his family. What made him smile most was simply being surrounded by family and the frequent visits from his daughters Dana and Jenifer. He was a good man, a loving father and a caring person. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
