OBITUARY

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 
together.

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, 
Savanna, Rebecca, Seth, Macee, Courtney, Brittney, Zach, Bryanna, Maryssa, 
Cory, Tyler, Bryce and Whitney and great-grandchildren Oscar, Vada, CeCe, 
Tyler, Delaney, Ellinora, Easton, Kinsley, Clayton, Paislee and Jaxon along 
with nieces and nephews.

His step-children also loved him dearly and accepted him as their own. 
Janice (Ed) Jokkel, Deborah Wilson, Jim Wilson and Jeffrey Wilson, 7 
grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.  Needless to say,  Frank’s quiver 
was full!

A celebration of Frank’s life will take place with a  memorial service held 
at Hope Christian Church, 32625 Detroit Road, Avon OH 44011 on Saturday 
August 17 from 10a - 12:00 o’clock with the service immediately following at 
12:00p o’clock.  Pastor Mark Mattingly of Hope Christian Church and Pastors 
Timothy and Deena Williams of Greater Victory Christian Ministries will 
officiate.

Private internment will take place at Myrtle Hill Cemetery in Valley City 
with the immediate family at a later date.
