West Chester - Frank J. Kopich, 78, West Chester, Ohio, died on Wednesday, February 7, 2018 after a short stay in the Hospice of Cincinnati, Blue Ash, Ohio. He was born on August 4, 1939 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the son of Frank and Anna (Yakobosky) Kopich. After graduating from Cass Twp. High School in Primrose, Pennsylvania, he joined the United States Navy and served on the USS Intrepid aircraft carrier in places such as Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and the Mediterranean Sea as a member of the VF-41 Black Aces Squadron. Upon receiving an honorable discharge from the U.S. Navy in 1960 he attended the University of Cincinnati on a football scholarship, graduating in 1964. His success as a business man led him to start several of his own companies, including PermaView of Cincinnati and Pella Marketing Systems, serving as founder, president, and CEO of each. Frank was a man of many interests and talents and possessed a great sense of humor. He was an avid reader, always ready for a lively discussion on most any topic. An ardent supporter of the University of Cincinnati Bearcats athletic programs and a member of the UCATS, he was also a former member of Terrace Park Country Club and enjoyed playing golf.
