Leonard Edward Frick, 83 of Medina, Ohio passed away peacefully on Saturday, October 2, 2021, surrounded by family. Born on May 28, 1938, in Cleveland, Ohio, he was the son of Albert T. and Clara Frick (Leibenguth) and brother to Clementine Stafford who preceded him in death.

He is survived by his daughter Meredith (Brian) Frick; son Geoff (Jackie), grandchildren Emily, Samantha and Adam. Also surviving his passing are his nieces Marisa (Amy) and Sarah, nephews Eric (Shelly) and Patrick (Mary) and countless friends.

Len was a member of the graduating class of 1956 from North Olmsted High School. In 1960, he graduated with BA Degree in Education from Baldwin-Wallace University where he was a member of the Alpha Sigma Phi Fraternity. Upon graduation from Baldwin-Wallace he joined the North Olmstead City School District. Len’s first position was a History Teacher and then moved onto roles of Assistant Principal, Superintendent and finished his42-year long career as the District Administrator.

Len was a dedicated and proud father. He never missed his children’s sporting events, he participated in Indian Guides with Geoff and taught them both life lessons along the way.  His children described him as kind, loving, thoughtful, fair and always with a dry sense of humor.  The family enjoyed traveling in their motor home and visiting the eastern US from Maine to Florida.   Len was an avid wood worker and built everything from a tree fort in the backyard, to pieces of furniture and countless projects around the house.

In retirement he loved to work on his 1932 Buick Victoria.   He had a passion for cars, enjoyed spending time working in the yard and helping his neighbors when they needed a hand. He always beamed with pride when he spent time with his grandchildren knowing his legacy would continue on.

The family will receive family and friends from 11:00 AM-1:00 PM followed by a service on Tuesday, October 5, 2021, at Jenkins Funeral Chapel 2914 Dover Center Road Westlake, Ohio. Leonard will then be buried at Resthaven Memorial Gardens in Avon, OH – family and friends are welcome.

The family will be wearing purple to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s and to honor Leonard’s battle.

In lieu of flowers, the family would request a donation be made to the Alzheimer's Association | Donate to Fight Alzheimer's Disease

Meredith we are thinking of you and your family. Richard and I enjoyed the time that we got to spend with your dad. He seemed so happy when he visited you guys at your mountain home in NC. He loved to just piddle as I call it. He was a special man and a supportive dad to you and to Geoff. Wishing you peace and comfort. We love you!!!!

I consider myself blessed to have known Len and called him friend. I will forever miss his visits on Thanksgiving, his laugh, his kind (and protective) heart. He will be missed.

I met Lennany years ago when I worked in Strongsville. Later, when I worked in North Olmsted, I was privileged to work with Len until he retired. He had a great sense of humor, was always willing to listen, and liked to help employees and students whenever he could. I will miss Len and pray for him and his family. Safe home Len.

Len and I worked for North Olmsted School District for many years. He always had a great sense of humor! I always respected him and his decisions. I'm still singing "The wheels on the bus go round and round" to you!
Rest easy, Len.
