He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Jill Edelinski, daughter Erica (Connor) Edelinski Kilpatrick, son Jonathan Edelinski, and sister Gigi (Gene) Rogers. He is also fondly remembered by his extended family including numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, father in-law, sister in-law, and nephew.
Frank attended Columbus West High School where he was socially involved in many clubs/organizations and was an excellent baseball athlete. He graduated in 1969 with many classmates becoming lifelong friends. He then continued on to The Ohio State University and would enjoy cheering on and watching Buckeye basketball and football for the rest of his life.
In 1979 he began what would turn into a very successful long career in new construction home sales and real estate. He was a member of the BIA, winning numerous awards including Sales & Marketing manager of the year. He hosted a real estate radio show program, new home buying seminars, and would eventually be the co-founder of his own brokerage leading a team of many agents before selling his company to join Signature Realty for his last eight years in the industry. He was always a hardworking, fearless entrepreneur.
Frank was also a bold follower of Jesus Christ and enjoyed serving as an usher at church. He loved people and making them laugh with his larger than life personality. The greatest work he ever accomplished was sharing the good news of salvation, and leading many people to Christ. In his spare time, he took his prior radio experience and started a show again, but this time focused on sharing about Jesus, end times, and eternity.
He was devoted to his family, and was incredibly proud of his children. Frank was very generous, fun loving, dependable, strong, and had a huge heart. He touched the lives of so many people and will be deeply missed.
