Tim Siu was born in Honolulu, Hawaii on October 3, 1926. He was one of six children born to Mr. and Mrs. Siu Kwai Ching. The family lived a simple life on Kukui Street until the attack on Pearl Harbor, which forced them to move to California. Tim finished high school on the mainland. He went to UC Berkeley to study for a year and then enlisted in the Navy to serve his country. He went back to Berkeley to get his bachelor’s and attended medical school at UC Irvine. After his graduation, Tim went to LA County Medical Center to perform his medical internship and residency in anesthesia.
