Frank was a devoted and loving husband of 48 years to his wife, Charisse, (nee Murawski) a.k.a. “Redneck” a.k.a. Sherry. He was a dear brother of Helen, Robert a.k.a. Tim (deceased), Walter (Marianne) and Alan. Cherished uncle, leaving behind 12 nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and many lifelong friends. Frank and his siblings grew up in Slavic Village. Frank loved animals from dogs to birds, he belonged to the CRC Cleveland Roller Club, one of his passions was raising racing pigeons. He also raised a wide array of farm animals from cows, pigs, and chickens to a wild crow. Did you know he would never miss a good auction? He loved buying almost anything that was willing to retire with him for a good deal. Frank was extremely complex, a funny guy, proud, honest, and hard working his entire life. He worked at Cotter & Co. then moved on to work for Republic Steel/LTV Steel in Cleveland where he dedicated 30 years of service before retiring at age 50. Frank and Sherry bought properties in the Quaker City area and built a cabin away from the city. They both gained interest in hunting deer and were avid hunters, having many mounts hanging on their walls. Frank loved music, especially the Beatles, classic muscle cars, nature, forestry, boating and running machinery. He loved blazing his own trails with his variety of bulldozers, excavators and tractors. He loved getting stuck in the mud across his endless tracks of land. He also got a kick out of blowing things up by exploding tannerite with his .22-250 rifle. Frank loved spending time down south and spending time with his nephew, Larry and his favorite dogs, Poopka and Little Girl. His final word was-SHER!
