Gluvna Shimo Hromada

Frank C. Giamboi, age 92, of Lorain, passed away peacefully at O’Neill Health Center in Bay Village during the early morning hours of Thursday September 23, 2021.  He was born in Lorain on June 26, 1929 to Antonio and Pasqua (nee Ippolito) Giamboi and remained a resident of the city for his entire life; Frank was a 1947-B graduate of Lorain High School.

He was inducted into the United States Army in January of 1951 where he fulfilled duty assignments as a Corporal attached to Company C of the 6th Infantry during the Korean War. The recipient of the Army Occupation Medal, he was a long-time member of Italian-American Veterans Post # 1.

Frank had been employed for more than a half century by the Lorain Glass Company where began his career there as a glazier. Through skill, dedication and a strong work ethic he was ultimately promoted to the role of supervisor retiring in 1999.

He was an active parishioner of St. Nicholas Byzantine Rite Church in Lorain where he was a member and past President of the Holy Name Society, served as a volunteer in the kitchen, and helped with the maintenance and beautification of the church grounds. He also served as the weekly bingo caller there for thirty-five years and was proud to have crafted the cross that adorns the church’s dome.

Referred to as the man who could fix or repair just about anything, he was regarded as the handiest man ever by his family and friends. When not engaged in a repair or remodeling project, Frank enjoyed his most favorite pastime which was involvement in the daily lives of his children and grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife of sixty-six years Mary Ann (nee Kachur), sons Frank of Lorain, and Michael (Michelle) of Lake Milton, Ohio, and daughters Karen Berga (Rod) of Vermilion, and Nancy Mullins of Avon. He also leaves grandchildren Gabrielle, Angela, Mary, Jake, Chris, Alec, Julia, and Monica and great grandchildren Layla and Mia.

He was preceded in death by his father Antonio in 1963 and mother Pasqua in 1987.
