Born in Ravenna, Ohio on May 15, 1958, he was the son of the late Frank J. and Helen (Stanley) Podojil, Sr. A resident of the Mantua- Shalersville area the past 36 years, Frank grew up in Garrettsville where he was a 1976 graduate of James A. Garfield High School, and a longtime member of St. Ambrose Catholic Church. Frank proudly served his country in the U.S. Army.  Frank had been employed as a carpenter for Hummel Construction retiring after 29 years of service. An avid sports fan of all Cleveland teams, he loved playing Euchre and Pinochle, and will forever be remembered by those who mourn his passing  of the family vacations at Sunset Beach, North Carolina where he would be looking for sand dollars, and those times of sitting on the porch at his “Dream Home” in southern Ohio. On September 19, 1981, he married his beloved wife Lori (Hickman) Podojil who survives at their home. Also surviving are his devoted children Frank J. (Sarah) Podojil, 3rd. of Shalersville, Suzy (Timothy) Kohn of Kent and Katy (Joey Schrecengost) Podojil of Ravenna; dear siblings Richard (Marie) Podojil of Ravenna, Bonnie (Tim) Jacobson of Conway, South Carolina, Becky Rini of Columbus, Ohio, Amy (Scott) Phelps  and Beverly (Matt) Brookover both of Garrettsville; and his loving grandchildren Haley Jane, Frank,4th., Teddy and Helen. No calling hours. A Celebration of Life will be held Thursday April 5, 2018 from 3:00 P.M.-6:00 P.M. at the Shalersville Town Hall.
