Kenneth Leslie Nedrich
Kenneth Leslie Nedrich, age 85, of Marblehead, Ohio and Port Charlotte, Florida, passed away on December 20, 2021.
Ken lived a full life and loved his family, and even got to meet his great grandson this year. Born on April 4th, 1936 in Stump Creek Pennsylvania, a coal mining town, he and his family later moved to Cleveland, Ohio. After high school, he served proudly in the United States Army and did a tour in Germany. When he returned, he met his wife Charlotte, and they started and grew their family in Cleveland and later North Olmsted. He worked as a driver for most of his career: bus and train for Cleveland Transit, and a semi driver for Dohrn Transfer, Halls, Yellow Freight and more. The Cleveland Indians and Browns were his teams and he rooted for them faithfully through many a trying season. He loved to fish with his many friends and had boats in Marblehead and Florida, where he taught his grandsons how to fish and enjoyed taking his family for boat rides on Lake Erie. For many years after retirement, he had a spot on the beach in Bay Point and Dani-Dons resorts where he spent many a sun-soaked summer with his friends, children and grandchildren. The family would like to thank all of Ken’s friends at Dani-Dons who were so kind to him over the past decade.
Survived by his wife, Charlotte; sisters, Darlene and Dolly; children, Beth Klenotic (Tom), Karen Stipe (Dan) and Steven; grandchildren, Tom Klenotic (Emily), Tim Klenotic (Brittany), Nat Stipe and Rosemary Stipe; along with a great-grandson, Ronin Klenotic, who will all miss him.
Preceded by his parents, Leslie and Laura (nee Phillips); son, Gary; and brother, Gary.
Ken’s family will receive family and friends at Reidy-Scanlan-Giovannazzo Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 2150 Broadway, Lorain, OH, (440) 244-1961 on Thursday, December 30, 2021, from 4:00 PM until 7:00 PM with a funeral service starting at 6:00 PM.
