Robert Wallace Frame, 92 passed away Sunday, July 5, 2020 at Genesis Morrison House. He was born October 9, 1927 in Zanesville to the late Amos Milton “Pucky” and Martha “Matt” Clark Frame. He was a graduate of McLuney High School, received a Bachelor’s Degree from The Ohio State University and a Master’s Degree from Ohio University in teaching. His career in teaching started at North Ridge, Moxahala and then onto his alma mater McLuney High School; where he became not only a teacher but a friend to all students and parents, and a legendary coach. He was a United States Army veteran, serving in the World War II, where he was highly decorated and played in the Army band at many presidential occasions. Later in his music career, he became a world renowned saxophonist in many area big bands, including Bill King’s band. He was a member of Iliff United Methodist Church.
He placed his stamp on the Crooksville and surrounding communities by being the co-owner of Frame’s IGA. He was also a former member of the Board of Directors of The Community Bank. He was instrumental in the historical marker placed at Milligan’s Bend for the coldest temperature on record. No person loved Perry County and its history more than Bob Frame. Just like Perry County’s famous son Januarius MacGahan, he used his pen to spread knowledge about much that was unknown. Bob has helped current and future generations know the early stalwarts of Perry County and the toll they played in the state, nation and world. In 2007 he authored the book “What is there to write about in Perry County”. This book went on to become a highly sought after top selling novel and is currently in the Library of Congress.
He is survived by his wife Sue Weisenstine Frame; and a son Scott D. Frame.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his brother Jack Frame; and two sisters: Donna Rambo and Pat Pritchard.
A private cremation service will be held at this time and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
