FRANK D. STARMAN
Frank D. Starman, 73, of Lorain went home peacefully to be with his Lord on
August 6, 2019 following a courageous fight with Fronto-temporal Dementia.
Frank was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.
His family meant more to him than anything, always enjoying happy times
Frank graduated from St. Joseph High School in Euclid where he was an
outstanding football player with the nickname “Frank the Tank.” He was
accepted on a full football scholarship to the University of Cincinnati
where he received his Bachelors Degree. He went on to teach Biology,
Science and Physical Education at various northeast Ohio schools and ended
his career in 2004 at East Tech High in Cleveland.
His greatest love was for teaching the Word of God thru a Men’s Bible Study
when he was an active member of Church on the North Coast in Lorain. He
wrote his own curriculum and ministered to groups of men as well as
mentoring young men, one on one. He also had a special place in his heart
for the country of Haiti and the orphanage “Destiny Village” where he went
to minister. In 2013 he became an active member of Greater Victory
Christian Ministries where he served on the altar ministry and also served
the needy through their Feed the Hungry food pantry.
He was preceded in death by his loving first wife Gayle, his parents Frank
and Emily Starman of Euclid, and his sister Gail Pratt.
He is survived by his loving second wife Patti, his children Stacy (Jeff)
Killinger, Scott Starman, Michelle Starman, Bryan (Amy) Starman, Connie
Starman, and Emily (Jeff) Wilson, grandchildren Brandi, Danielle, Rick,

Cory, Tyler, Bryce and Whitney and great-grandchildren Oscar, Vada, CeCe,

with nieces and nephews.
His step-children also loved him dearly and accepted him as their own.
