Obituary

Obituary for Frank "Rudy" Putich

Putich, Frank, of Centerville, passed away Monday, July 22, 2019. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio on June 22, 1928 to Frank and Mary (Lacan) Putich.

Frank joined the US Military in 1946, and served as an Army Paratrooper & Rifleman for which he was awarded WWII Victory Medal and Army of Occupation Medal of Japan. He later studied Aeronautical Engineering at the University of Michigan, and worked with both McDonald Douglas and TRW in California helping to design the Space Shuttle. In 1972, when he and his family moved to Cincinnati, Frank began working with his brother. They worked together at Bill Putich Sales for 35 years until his retirement.

Frank always enjoyed athletic competition; whether in participation or anticipation, he loved the thrill of the game. He loved to watch the Ohio State vs. Michigan game and cheer for his alma mater, and he took advantage of every opportunity to head to the fairway for 18 holes. Frank was always silly and fun, which made all of life a little more enjoyable for those around him. He loved traveling with Peggy, oriental rugs and decor, animals, and especially his beloved dog, Popeye.

Frank, and his shenanigans, will be missed by his wife of 37 years, Peggy Putich, 4 sons, Chuck (Kelly) Putich, James Putich, Mike (Julee) Putich, Tim (Paula) Putich, 12 grandchildren, Justin, Aimee, Brittany (Thomas), Jordan, Brooke, Nick (Jen), James, Jaimee (Ben), Jake (Nikki), Melissa (Brandon), Tim (Tracy), Jennifer (David), 13 great-grandchildren, and brother Bill (Peggy) Putich, their children, and other family and friends.

Frank is preceded in death by his parents, first wife Lois, second wife Ada, granddaughter Natalie Putich, and brother Charles Putich.

To help the family celebrate his life, you are invited to share during a visitation at Christ Church (3370 Upper Bellbrook Rd, Sugarcreek Township, OH 45305) from 10am to 12pm on Monday, July 29, 2019. His Life Celebration Funeral Services will be held immediately following the visitation. Frank will be buried with military honors at Dayton National Cemetery (4400 West Third Street, Dayton, OH 45428).

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to Alzeheimer's Association , Miami Valley Chapter, 31 W Whipp Rd, Dayton, Ohio 45459, SICSA of Greater Dayton, 2600 Wilmington Pike, Dayton, Ohio 45419, or the Ohio Parkinson Foundation, SW Region, Inc, 325 N Third St, Fairborn, OH 45324.
