Frank W. Murphy

Frank W. Murphy, age 76, passed away at home on December 6, 2021. Loving husband for 50 years of Sharon “Rosie” (nee Valus), amazing dad to Patty Sulik (Ken) and Sandy Richards (Tim), adoring donut delivering grandpa to Reagan, Kaylee, Zoli, Tyler and Izzy.

The world lost the greatest chute building, cornhole throwing, pig roasting, little league coaching, shortstop playing, baseball loving, math teaching, fantasy football playing, Hershey Park loving, Slymans eating, puzzle doing, all-around awesome guy.

Frank was a West Geauga graduate and proud Chesterland citizen all his life. He never missed an opportunity to make sure everyone was having a great time, or to teach someone something new. He taught math for 40 years and was honored as one of Ohio’s 100 top educators in 1999. After retirement he took pride in running cornhole for all his friends at the senior center. He loved going out to restaurants with Rosie, watching his grandkids play sports and spending time with his family and friends.

He will be remembered for countless things, but perhaps most for “Murph’s Chute”. He was the master at adding snow in all the right places. His passion and skill gave hundreds of kids thrilling winter memories.

We loved him so much and will miss him every day.

Cremation by DeJohn Crematory. Services will be held at a later date. Arrangements by the DeJohn Funeral Homes & Celebrations Center, 12811 Chillicothe Road in Chesterland (Rt. 306, just south of Mayfield Rd.).
