CANFIELD — Frank W. Kolesar, IV, 30, passed away Tuesday (Sept. 14).

Frank was born July 18, 1991, the first son of Frank W. Kolesar III and Jeanne Kolesar.

He was a 2009 graduate of Canfield High School.

It was in the city of Canfield where Frank began a lawn care business in his early teens. Under the tutelage of many wise men, Frank learned and refined various skills which he would then pass on to those with whom he worked.

As Frank grew in wisdom, so did the impact he had on others. Frank’s final act of kindness was to be an organ donor.

Frank will be remembered fondly as an outgoing, reasonable man who was quick to lend a hand to a brother in need. His goals included expanding his excavating business and remodeling his home.

He loved being outdoors, working on his trucks and being around friends, but he was the happiest when he was enjoying his favorite, home-cooked meals with his family.

Frank is survived by his mother Jeanne; brothers Michael and Joseph; his grandmother Marian Parish; Uncle John (Brenda) Kolesar; Aunt Ginger Kolesar; Uncle Raymond (Erin) Lonsway; and cousins Tori (Josh) Herington, Darby Kolesar, Taryn Kolesar, Jennifer (Mark) Wenick, Raymond (Chelsea) Lonsway, Isabella Lonsway, Anthony Lonsway, Aubrey Wise, Russell Wise, Noah Lonsway and Logan Lonsway.

He will be missed by his kittens Mo Mo and Su Su, whom he recently rescued and loved dearly.

Frank was preceded in death by his father, Frank W. Kolesar, III; a brother, Kevin M. Kolesar; his paternal grandparents, Frank and JoAnn Kolesar, Sr.; and his maternal grandfather, Jacob A. Parish, Jr.

The family will receive friends Tuesday (Sept. 21) from 3 to 5:45 p.m. at Canfield Lane Chapel. A private funeral service will follow for the family.
