John (Jack)'s Story
John T. "Jack" Short Sr., 90, of Encinitas, Calif., died Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017, just as he wished - suddenly and without pain - having lived a rich life full of love, family, and community service.
He was preceded in death by his high school sweetheart and adored wife, Norma Hansen Short; parents, Carl West Dobbe Short and Clara Leana Domros Short; and four siblings, Gladys (MacDonald), Alice (Kibbie), Al and Bill.
He is survived by his son, John T. Short Jr. (Clara) of Cumberland; his sons, Travis (Rhodes) and Tyler (fiancée Andrea); his daughter, Lissa Poincenot (Lionel) of San Diego, Calif; and her children, Jeremy (fiancée Ellen), Julie and Eric.
Memorial services for family and friends will be held Saturday, Nov. 25, 2017, at 10 a.m. at Cook Chapel, Frostburg State University, Frostburg, in remembrance of his life.
In December, a private graveside service with military honors will take place at Miramar National Cemetery in San Diego, where he and Norma will be rejoined in the presence of his family.
Life has an end. Love doesn't.
