Obituary Condolences

Dr. Jack Bagshaw lost his battle with cancer on Thursday May 29. He passed away peacefully, at his home, Foxglove, surrounded by his family and close friends.

Born in New York in 1938, Dr. Bagshaw was a graduate of Provident College, in Providence, Rhode Island. He attended Georgetown University, School of Medicine where he also completed his internship and medical residency. After serving as a Lieutenant in the US Navy, Dr. Bagshaw practiced cardiology, critical care and internal medicine in Marin County, California where he served for 7 years as Director of the Coronary Care Unit. In 1979, he founded PHYSIS, a preventive medicine company in San Francisco, with the

mission of integrating preventive technology with the healthcare system. In 2003, Dr. Bagshaw joined the Ukiah Valley Medical Center staff and served on the 2007-2008 medical executive committee until his illness. He reflected the highest standards of integrity and of his profession. He brought a dynamic energy and vision to each endeavor as well as warmth and caring to each patient.

He loved reading history and enjoyed a lively political discussion. He had an adventuresome spirit and he encouraged others to experience adventures along with him such as trips down the Rogue River. Behind his crisp button-down blue shirt was a warm and giving heart. He was a loving father and devoted friend. He was a great cook and an outstanding host. He will be greatly missed and his memory will never grow old.

He is survived by his wife Lisa, daughter, Natasha Bagshaw, Lisa's daughters Madeline Aseltyne and Hanna Franz, and brother, Bob, and wife, Susan Bagshaw. A private celebration for family and close friends will be held Sunday. The family requests that in lieu of flowers donations be made to the UVMC Nursing Education Fund or Hospice of Ukiah. Eversole Mortuary in charge of arrangements.
