During World War II, he served in the infantry for two years. After the war, he earned a bachelor's degree on the GI Bill of Right in 1951 from the University of Maryland.

Mr. Steinkraus worked as a financial manager for Ewell Motors in Glen Burnie and the Internal Revenue Service in downtown Baltimore.
