In 1938 he entered Laguna Honda Hospital in San Francisco, according to newspaper accounts, desperately ill. He died there in 1953



Sharkey was in the hospital for all those years? From 1938 to 1953?

I'm not sure about that.  I don't know if he was there continuously all that time or in and out.  If anyone has some information about that they'd like to share, it would be greatly appreciated.

I had a few spare moments and was searching the web looking for some information about this, and found an old archive "Milestones" article from the April 27th, 1953 issue of Time Magazine.  It stated that Sharkey died of complications connected with heart disease.
