Obituary

FRANK ANDREW RASPEY age 75 died on 4/17/21 . He was born in Chemnitz Germany and emigrated to the US with his family when he was 6 years old. His parents Maxwell Raspe and Herta Raspe (nee Sodaman) preceded him in death. He leaves behind his wife Anne Dauper Raspey of 35 years, his son Paul James Raspey of Garland , TX , his granddaughter Emma Rose Raspey and brother John Raspey of Ft Myers, FL. He lived in his beloved Pittsburgh for over 40 years, married Anne in 1986 and moved to the Cleveland area in 1992. He resided in Parma for 26 years and then Strongsville for 3 years. He was employed by IBM Corporation for 23 years, took an early buy-out and then was employed in car sales for American Honda at Rick Roush Medina Honda. He met Anne while traveling in the Islands in 1983 and they married in 1986. Frank loved to travel. He was an avid pro-soccer fan, both indoor and outdoor and would be so excited to watch World Cup soccer every 4 years. Of course no team was better than the Pittsburgh Steelers! He loved raising and caring for 6 rescue dogs and numerous birds over the years. Being a no fuss kind of guy he rarely wore suits and ties preferring a wardrobe of shorts, tee shirts and sandals. He cherished time out of doors and loved hiking, cross country skiing and sun bathing. In his latter years he enjoyed participating in the functional exercise grip and luncheons at the Strongsville senior rec center. Frank collected books on Japanese armor, ancient coins and prehistoric artifacts and enjoyed reading in his retirement. Funeral service will be held at 2pm Thursday and will be livestreamed.
