Dr. John F. "Jack"
Dr. John F. Steinman, DDS of Maumee OH, passed away peacefully after a long illness at Hospice of Northwest Ohio on October 20, 2012. Jack was born January 10, 1931, in Toledo OH. Jack attended Ohio State University
was a member of Psi Omega fraternity and graduated in June 1957. After an internship in Florida he established a dental practice in Maumee where he treated his many devoted patients for over 50 years. He was assisted in his practice by family members and Vonnie Mears. He loved his patients and they adored him as a moral and honest gentleman who never refused treatment to those with financial difficulties. One elderly patient who was unable to pay delivered homemade pies in gratitude for his service. Even through his long illness, he continued to see patients on occasion, and hoped to return to his office to see more of his patients. Jack's commitment to dentistry led him to invent, patent, and manufacture a tooth polisher that won the Inventor's Trade Association "Medal of Achievement". Jack's motto was "If you do something right, you will never be wrong".
Jack was married to his loving and devoted wife, Lena "Lee" Mastropere Steinman for 59 years. Jack raised his children on Kumler Drive in a house that he designed, drew the blueprints, and helped build. Jack was preceded in death by his daughter, Sheri Ann Steinman. He is survived by his wife, Lee; daughter, Sandra Lee (Drury) Tallant; sister-in-law, Dorothy (John) Brazeau Riser, and by his nieces and nephews.
In recent years he attended the Monclova Road Baptist Church. The family expresses its thanks and gratitude to Pastor Russ Merrin, his wife Norma, and other members of the church for the wonderful support they gave Jack. We are also grateful to the staff at Hospice of Northwest Ohio for their care and attention.
