Frank Orshoski, Jr.

Frank Orshoski, Jr. was the son of Frank and Dallas Orshoski, born on January 11, 1929. Frank served in the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict. He married Alice Zeck, and they had a family of seven children. Frank enjoyed his family very much. He was active in umpiring little league baseball. For many years, Frank worked at Sandusky Dressed Beef.

One of the biggest tragedies of Frank's life was losing his oldest son, Craig, in a snowmobile accident. Only in his early 20's, Craig died close to his Bay View home on December 31, 1980. Frank was ill for many years, and he passed away on October 10, 1982.Though he left this earth to soon, a host of Orshoski grandchildren are carrying on the zest for life that Frank Orshoski, Jr. always had. Below is a brief article from the December 22, 1944 issue of the Margaretta News, which told about Frank and Rollie Orshoski's excellent attendance record.

Frank Orshoski,Jr. is buried at the Castalia Cemetery.
