Resident of Alameda

Born in Queens, N.Y., to the late Hertha Anderson and Heinrich Steinorth, Jack was the beloved husband of Wallie Steinorth; proud father of Lori (Dante) Oducayen and Peter (Colette) Steinorth; loving grandfather of Travis and Austin Oducayen, Kayla and Jake Steinorth; brother of Hank (Inga) Steinorth.

Jack started and ran his own specialty contracting business for more than 40 years. Although work was important, play took precedence. An accomplished rugby player, tennis player and golfer, he was a long- time member of the Olympic Club and the Alameda Men’s Golf Club. In his early days, he belonged to the San Francisco Rugby Club and the Golden Gate Park Tennis Club. 

A man of many talents, Jack enjoyed diving for abalone, fishing for trout, taking in musical theater at Woodminster Amphitheatre and camping at Oakland’s Feather River Camp. He thoroughly enjoyed a good meal accompanied by a frosty beer or nice bottle of wine and will be missed by all who played with him and enjoyed his hearty laugh.  

A celebration of life will be held on Friday, June 27. Inquiries can be sent to oducayen@comcast.net. Donations in Jack’s memory may be made to Alameda Junior Golf Association, #1 Clubhouse Memorial Drive, Alameda, CA 94502.
