George William Frankovich

August 2, 1937 - September 19, 2018

Frankovich, George William, 81, of Shadyside, Ohio, died Wednesday, September 19, 2018, at Liza’s Place.

He was born on August 2, 1937, in Wheeling, WV, a son of George and Margaret D. Frankovich.

Preceding him in death, in addition to his parents, were his wife, Marianne “Tomi” Frankovich, infant daughter, Susan Frankovich, and great grandson, George E. Frankovich.

He graduated from Bridgeport High School in 1955 and later attended McKinley Technical School, earning an electrician certificate. He worked at Ohio Ferro Alloys in Clarington for 29 years. He and his wife had a long term crafts business, Sunshine and Shadows Crafts and displayed their wares at the Ohio Valley Mall for many years.

He is survived by his son, Patrick Frankovich, and his wife, Debbie, of Shadyside; a daughter, Jamie Roberts and her husband, David, of Colerain; and grandchildren: Molly

Roberts, George Frankovich, Stephen Frankovich, Alexis and Curtis Crupe and Wally Holmes, all of Shadyside. He also has three sisters: Patsy and Fred Snively, Rose Mauck, Margie and Robert Etchberger and two brothers: David and Mikki Frankovich, Jim and Ruth Frankovich.

George was a true adventurer, camping all over the country with his wife and kids. He saw 49 states including Alaska three times. He loved cars, working on them and owning them, having had 2 Mercury Turnpike cruisers. He enjoyed steam shows, flea markets and yard sales, carting home tons of stuff he never needed! He looked forward to going to Parts A Rama every year with his family. At the end of his life, he loved spending time with his only great grandchild, George E. Frankovich, who sadly passed at 5 months old in August, 2018. Our earthly loss is little Georgie’s gain. We will miss him dearly.

Family and friends will be received Friday, September 21, from 2-4 and 6-8 at the Bauknecht-Altmeyer Funeral Homes & Crematory, 3900 Central Avenue, Shadyside, Ohio 43947. Funeral services will be held at 11 am on Saturday, September 22, with Father Matthew Gossett officiating. Burial will follow at St. Anthony’s Cemetery, Blaine, Ohio.
