Jack Zirbes was reunited with his wife Dolores and many other beloved family members on July 11, 2020. He was born on August 1, 1932 in Lacrosse, Wisconsin along with his twin sister Jean to loving parents Raymond F. Zirbes and Pauline Marie Peikert Zirbes. He attended schools in Lacrosse and after graduating from Aquinas High School he enlisted in the U.S. Army and served for two years during the Korean War. Right before leaving for basic training Jack met Dolores Zirbes, a cute little Mormon girl from Springville, Utah. Following his service in the Army Jack and Dolores were married in Springville on February 2, 1955. Dad investigated the Church of Jesus Christ of LatterĀ­ Day Saints and was converted and baptized. He had a strong testimony of the gospel and served his entire life in many church callings including Bishop. Jack had a very successful career as a civil engineer and worked for many years as Provo City Engineer. He also worked in Reseda, CA, Onalaska, Wis., West Valley City, UT., and had his own business, Zirbes Engineering. Dad was preceded in death by his parents Ray and Marie, sisters Patricia Zirbes and twin Jean Robertson, brother James, wife Dolores, daughter Sharon, and granddaughter Cara. He is survived by his brother Joseph, children: Debra Zirbes, Jeffrey Zirbes, Nancy Dudley, and Thomas Zirbes, 6 grandchildren, 9 greatĀ­ grandchildren, and 1 great-great grandchild. Dad was a kind and loving man who touched many lives for good. He will be dearly missed by his family and all who knew him. He has completed his earthly mission in an exemplary manner, has passed the tests of mortality and endured faithfully to the end. He has returned home well prepared to stand in the presence of his Heavenly Father and his Savior, Jesus Christ.

So grateful to have known Jack and Delores Zirbes. We express our sympathy to the family for their passing. Knowing the faith that they had gives comfort to us that still have to go through this life experience. We pray that we can still be as strong as they were in keeping their faith and follow their example. May the Lord bless your family.
Sincerely, Duane and Gayle Dudley and family

Debbie, Jeff, Nancy, and Tom, on behalf of the Hutchings family, we would like to express our condolences to you for you dad's passing. He was indeed an amazing man. He was probably the kindest and most gentle person I personally have ever met. I have fond memories of my childhood visits to your home and a deer hunting trip with Tom and Jack. Uncle Jack always had a warm and welcoming smile, he will be missed.

Debbie, Jeff, Nancy, and Tom,
I wish I could be at the funeral today with you as you lay your Dad to rest. He was a good man who accomplished much and served in so many ways. I like the picture of him that you chose because that is how I always think of him... smiling! My mom had a special bond with her twin brother. She was proud of him and loved him so. My thoughts are with you as you mourn his passing, yet celebrate his exemplary life.
Love to you all!
Love, Diane

To the family of Jack Zirbes I just saw in the Provo Daily Herald of your fathers passing. In August of 1977 I received a notice placed in a Los Angeles California newspaper about a job opening in the Provo City Engineering office. The notice was sent by a fellow co worker at the Harbor District Office of the City of Los Angeles. I received while on vacation in Wyoming. I had been desirous of moving to Utah for employment. I stopped in Provo on my way back to California. I discussed the job with your father and he asked for a resume when I returned to California. A few days after receiving my resume your father called my office, talked to me, my supervisor and offered me a job as the Collector Roads Engineer for Provo City. I only worked at Provo for two years before moving on with other opportunities but appreciated your father, his tutoring me in the engineering ways of Provo, Utah and the great friendship we enjoyed. Love to your family Joel Harrison
