Obituaries from the Past Three Days

Lung, John Alvin - Garden City  
John Alvin Lung, M.D. 1939 - 2016 John A. Lung, M.D., died peacefully at home surrounded by family on June 16, 2016. John is survived by his wife of 30 years Kathy and their daughter Amanda Thorsvig, his sons Scott and Mark Lung from his prior marriage with Patricia, brother Phil Lung, and granddaughters Claire and Madison Lung. A memorial celebration service is scheduled at St. John's Cathedral for 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 28. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donating to John's memorial funds at either the Mountain States Tumor Institute or the Boise Family YMCA. John was born in 1939 in Ada, Oklahoma. Despite humble beginnings, John excelled from a young age. John was the first athlete in his high school in any sport to earn the "All State" title, for his skill as a football tight-end. He was offered full basketball and football scholarships to Oklahoma State University, and chose football. Playing college football did not distract John from his academics, and John earned his B.S. in just three years, a feat owing to his intellect and hard work. He joined the Army to pay for medical school and obtained his M.D. in 1964 from the University of Oklahoma. After graduation, John completed his residency at Fitzsimons Army Hospital in Denver and achieved board certification in surgery. His career with the Army landed him a position as Chief of Surgery at the Okinawa General Hospital during the Vietnam War. In 1972, John began working as a surgeon for both St. Luke's and St. Alphonsus hospitals in Boise. He was past Chairman of the Dept. of Surgery at St. Luke's, and Medical Director of the Breast Cancer Detection Center. He was the only surgical oncologist at the Mountain States Tumor Institute from 1982 to 2007, during which time John also served as a clinical instructor of surgery for UW School of Medicine. After John stopped performing surgery, he gave back to the community through involvement in the MSTI High Risk Breast Cancer Clinic. He was a member of multiple prestigious surgical associations including The Western Surgical Association, gave numerous medical presentations, and authored many publications. At his core, he was a caring, skilled surgeon, and he was always reverently aware that his patients' lives were in his hands. Though a busy surgeon, John never stopped being a great athlete. John and his friends ran many marathons and triathlons. He was most proud of finishing the Boston Marathon but also took great joy in competing in local races like Robie Creek. He was a staunch believer in healthy living and healthy eating (despite his sweet-tooth), and exercise. The local YMCA was of the utmost importance to him, and he actively participated in the YMCA "Just for Kids" fundraising campaign for many years.
