Frank R. Radich, former owner of North End Glass in Seattle, died on March 25 at the age of 76. Radich was the first treasurer of the Washington Glass Association (WGA) and a charter member when the WGA was established in 1983.
“Following his retirement, and the closing of North End Glass, where I was first introduced to the glass and glazing industry, Frank and his wife, Janice, moved to South Carolina to take an active role in their grandchildren’s lives,” says Maryanne Howell, executive director of the WGA.
Radich is survived by his sisters, Teri Radich (Ed Fijalka) and Maryanne Howell (Timothy) of the WGA; his daughters, Lisa Radich and Shawna Kelly; his son-in-law, Jeffrey Kelly; and three granddaughters, Rosanna, Renee and Bethany. He was preceded in death by Janice Mae Rostad, his wife of 53 years.
According to his obituary, a private graveside service will be held for immediate family on Friday, April 3, 2020. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Samaritan’s Purse.
