Steve Orndorf passed away in his home with his family by his side on Tuesday, July 14, @ 12:33pm. Steve was born on March 28, 1947 and lived a life full of love and adventure. He was a husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend. He was an avid fisherman, mushroom hunter, bird watcher, music lover, weather fanatic, rock and beer can collector, lover of Mother Nature, A's fan, 49ers fan, author, mentor and partier extraordinaire. Steve’s greatest passions were fishing the jungles of South America and helping others.
During his 39 years in Napa County, Steve was very active in the community. He served terms as president of the School Board, Rotary, Wildlife Conservation Commission, and Boys & Girls Club. He also volunteered for the Napa River Steelhead Monitoring Program and served on the Board of Napa Valley Bank. His most passionate public service was mentoring veterans with PTSD from the Pathway Home in Yountville and the Post Deployment Assessment Treatment Program at the Martinez VA. He formed long lasting relationships with many of the veterans and continued to support them long after graduating from the program.
Steve will always be remembered for his wit, humor, integrity, work ethic, generosity, and zest for life. Steve left an unforgettable mark on his friends and family. We will miss him forever.
A party in Steve’s honor will be held in Napa on the one-year anniversary of his passing.
