Semon Jasper Sandven M.D. Obituary
December 24, 1924 - July 9, 2017 Semon Jasper Sandven, MD, born December 24, 1924 passed away on July 9, 2017 at the age of 92. Much beloved son, brother, husband, father, friend and physician, Semon practiced internal medicine for 30 years in Santa Monica. He served as an Assistant Clinical Professor at both UCLA and USC. A graduate of Washington University Medical School at St Louis, he was on the staff of physicians at both Santa Monica Hospital and Saint John's Hospital where he served on the Ethics Committee. Donations may be made to cancer research at (www.lls.org) to benefit children and adults suffering from cancer and blood diseases. He always felt deep compassion especially for children afflicted with such illnesses. He is survived by brother the Rev. Dr. Joe Sandven, who participated in Dr. King's Selma to Montgomery march, Judith Sandven, nieces and nephews. Semon will be sorely missed, especially by his daughter, Jodi Sandven, a retired teacher of at-risk youth residing in Oakland. Feel free to light a candle for him.
