Obituary for Jack L. Birkholz

JACK L. BIRKHOLZ, age 89, of Cupertino entered into eternal rest on August 22, 2018. He is survived by his loving wife, Janet of 65 years, his son, Thomas and wife, Terry, and granddaughter, Natalie. He was preceded in death by his younger son Terrance in 1995.
Mr. Birkholz was born in Los Angeles and graduated from the University of Southern California where he was a member of Psi Upsilon Fraternity. He met and married the former Janet Kokesh in Washington, D.C. in August of 1953. For thirty five years he was a CPA congressional auditor/investigator with the United States Government Accountability Office in Washington, D.C., Hawaii and in San Francisco where he spent the bulk of his career. This was followed by ten years of independent consulting in governmental financial management throughout the United States and the Pacific area.
He was a veteran of the United States Marine Corps. Music always was an important part of his life, and he played brass instruments in several musical organizations. He also was an avid backpacker and hiker. He was in volunteer activities for El Camino Hospital, St. Joseph of Cupertino Church and Cupertino community organizations.
He was a special and loving person – always willing to give a hand to those in need. He will be missed by his family and friends. All are invited to attend services beginning with visitation at 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm; Vigil at 7:00 pm at Cusimano Family Colonial Mortuary, 96 W El Camino Real, Mountain View, CA 94040, on September 6, 2018.
