Anthony Michael Jurach, a native Californian, was born in Watsonville on October 12, 1937, and died at home in Sacramento on January 2, 2014 after a long battle with cancer and a valiant and well-lived life. Tony graduated from Sacramento High School in 1955 and then from University of the Pacific. After retiring from his career as a pharmacist with Kaiser Permanente, he spent his retirement pursuing his passion for figure drawing and continued to enjoy the performing arts, fine art and great food. A beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend, he will be greatly missed by his loving wife, Diane, his two children, Matt Jurach who is married to Steph Anderson and Jess Fife who is married to Justin Fife, his three granddaughters, and many friends and family. We thank the Lord, who took him gently into His light. Honoring his wishes, there will be no memorial service. Your memories and sentiments in the online guestbook are appreciated.
