Frank J. Loria

November 6, 1942 — April 16, 2016

Frank J. Loria, 73, entered into eternal rest on the morning of April 16th, 2016. Born Nov. 6th, 1942 to Thomas M. and Ruth G. Reeves, Frank was a lifelong resident of the Cleveland area. He was raised on the east side in the old Buckeye Road neighborhood by his legal guardians, Zolton "Zutz" and Waldene Halkovics. Frank attended Benedictine High School and worked closely with his uncle "Zutz" learning the skilled trades in construction. He was also an Army veteran.

On July 27th, 1963, after meeting the love of his life Charlotte, they were joined in Holy Matrimony at St. Benedict Church in Cleveland. Planning to raise a family, Frank pursued a career as an electrician and they had two sons, Frank Jr. and David. In 1973, Frank moved his family to Maple Hts. where he resided for 28 yrs. before he and his wife moved to Parma in 2001. After retiring as an electrician from Lucas Aerospace/TRW for over 20 years in 2003, Frank worked part-time at Stonewall Shooting Range until his passing.

In addition, Frank was a member of St. Charles Borromeo Church, Parma Eagles Aerie #4204 and Pymatuning Sportsmans Club in Linesville, PA. He enjoyed the outdoors, spending time with family and friends and playing with his four-legged family member Sterling. Everyone enjoyed Frank's cooking, especially when he used home grown items from his garden. Frank was a father figure, a role model and a friend to many. His wisdom, guidance and support impacted many lives and for that he will be truly missed and always remembered.

Frank is survived by his wife Charlotte J. (nee Ondi) of 52 years; two sons, Frank J. (Judith Ann Rogowski) Loria and David A. (Kelly Wojton) Loria; three sisters, Romaine Reeves, Sandy Fugo (Anthony) and Loretta (Jim) Caldrone; and a brother-in-law, Bill Cummins.
