John Joseph (Jack) Alvarado, a private investigator and former manager of the San Rafael Chamber of Commerce, died yesterday at his home. He was 59.

Alvarado was found dead by his wife, Marguerite M. Alvarado, when she returned home from work about 3:30 p.m. The Marin County Coroner reported Alvarado had a history of heart disease and experienced chest pains Saturday night.

Alvarado was a descendant of Spanish pioneers in the San Gabriel Mission area of Los Angeles County.

He studied agricultural economics at California State Polytechnic College, San Luis Obispo.

Alvarado had had a variety of occupations. He was a public relations representative for Matson Navigation Co. for the western United States, and later became an account salesman for the St. Paul, Minn., advertising specialties firm of Brown and Bigelow.

In June, 1964, he became manager of the San Rafael Chamber of Commerce, and served in the capacity for three years.

He became manager of the Tiburon Lodge in 1970, and had since gone into the private investigation field.

Alvarado and his wife lived at 724 Los Colindas Road, San Rafael. They had three grown sons, one of whom, Michael, was honored for gallantry as a helicopter pilot in Vietnam.

Funeral arrangements were pending today at Williams and Heffernan Mortuary, San Rafael.
