Tribute & Message From The Family

Beloved husband, brother, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and uncle.

Frank Thomas Boron, born October 17, 1941, to Joseph & Helen Boron, New Castle, PA. Deceased July 28, 2021. Survived by his loving wife, Janet and sweet sister, Helen Flak. He was deeply loved and survived by 6 children: David (Alissa) Boron, Stacey (John) Kuehner, Kathryn Parker, Aaron Boron, Claire (Frank) Rogers, and Ethan (Amber) Boron. He was blessed with 15 grandchildren and one great grandchild.

Frank lived life abundantly all the way till the end. His great fashion for living was manifested in his life's work and his life's love, golf. After receiving his engineering degree at Fenn College, Frank had a successful career at BF Goodrich. In the late 70s, he took a chance with 3 other men in launching a new plastics company, BioPlastics (BioThane Coated Webbing, N. Ridgeville, OH). He retired from BioThane in 2007 and spent his retirement in the golf capital of America, Pinehurst, NC. In the spring of 2020, Frank and his wife moved back to the Cleveland area to be close to family for his last few rounds of golf.

And now for the finer things: Pops, as he was called by his children and Babu by his grandchildren, was at ease with people, friends, and strangers alike. He loved music, and he loved to play it loud. If he had another hobby, it was definitely cars. He liked a well-made machine. He could rock a pair of plaid pants and not bat an eye. Frank was a very generous and cheerful giver, always throwing away the ledger. He was a throwback type of man who was always willing to patiently share his experience and knowledge, whether it was how to paint a room, sand a dresser, change an outlet, run a company, edge a lawn or swing a club. He enjoyed a simple chili dog and was always on the lookout for a good ice cream stand. Cigars made him happy. Frank was an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan up until they started kneeling for the national anthem, because he was an even more avid patriot. He was not a fan of hospitals and wished to leave this world at home which he did besides his best buddy, Bogey.

The finest of all things is that Frank Thomas Boron became born again Father's Day, 2021. He has been called home to glory, where he is exploring the fairways of heaven.

A Celebration of Life Ceremony will take place from 5pm - 8pm on September 28, 2021, at the Springvale Golf Course and Ballroom, 5871 Canterbury Rd., North Olmsted, Oh 44070, (440) 777-0678.
