Jack Morgan Olmstead

1933 - 2021

Jack Morgan Olmstead was born April 30, 1933 to Rex and Viola in Checotah, Oklahoma. Not long after, the family packed up and moved to Sacramento, California where he was raised. Jack, along with many of his family members found their way to Hoberg's Resort to find work. Here he met his wife Betty. They married and raised three children in Napa. Jack had a long career in the California Highway Patrol. He met and married his wife Barbara and picked up the handle "Doc" from his visits to her work at the Queen of the Valley Hospital.

Upon retirement he and Barbara moved to Chico. Jack enjoyed reading and crossword puzzles, but his true passion was his beautiful property. He loved gardening and it showed in how everything flourished at his touch.

Jack was predeceased by his stepson Frank Muratori. He is survived by his wife Barbara, his children, Larry Olmstead, Jackie Strasburg, Sherry Bonds, Ralph Muratori and James Muratori, along with many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Jacks remains will be interred at Lakeside Memorial Lawn in Folsom, CA. Those wishing to pay respects may donate to California Highway Patrol Widows and Orphans Fund.

To Barbara and the Muritori and Olmstead family. I send you my sincerest condolences. I M Barbara Corbman's daughter Tami. I remember when I we were young Barbara rented my Grandmothers home and had horses there and before Jack and Barbara were married Jack stayed with my Mom and I. He was a truly lovely man. And he loved his family tremendously! God bless you all. Tami

I remember officer Olmstead, he used to stop me regularly on HY 29 when I was a crazy hot rodding teenager, he was always nice but stern. He was you would say, a good person, didn´t know him personally but the 8 or 10 times he caught me were memorable, obviously as I am now almost 72 years old. RIP Officer Olmstead.
