Ravon Frisco Obituary

On Monday, March 11, 2024, GOD called his sweet, wonderful Son, Ravon C. Frisco, Sr to be with HIM in
his everlasting resting place.  On April 5, 1988, GOD blessed his parents Michael B Frisco, and Freida L
Frisco, (nee Williams) with the joy of Ravon’s birth. 
From the beginning of his life, Ravon radiated a love for everyone that he encountered. Ravon’s laughter
and sense of humor was infectious, whether he was changing words around to his own liking, or
renaming people and things, he always brought out the best in others and took everyone into his heart
and his world.
Ravon graduated from Warrensville High School at the age of 17 in 2006, where he first exhibited his
leadership qualities and zeal for life. He had served on 3 of the High school’s sports teams, football,
basketball, & baseball. His pursuit of playing in the major league led him to the University of Toledo.
Although an untimely injury ended his MLB hopes, Ravon’s love for baseball carried on.
Ravon began his career in the City of North Randall. He later went on to hone his exceptional people
skills in the hospitality industry. Professionally, he found his work home as a Restaurant Manager at his
beloved Zanzibar Soul Fusion. His dedication to excellence and his innate ability to lead and inspire made
him a favorite among both staff and patrons. Ravon believed in living life to the fullest while his career
encompassed a wide expanse of skills including management, bartending, coaching, landscaping, &
other endeavors.
Ravon’s heart was so big and warm that he often put others’ comfort above his own. For him, everything
was about giving - rather of himself, his time, his labor, his sense of humor, or his quirky style – whatever
it took to bring joy to other people’s lives. Ravon often did community service outreach and loved all
family competitions. He always enjoyed feeding others. Cooking and grilling were one of his favorite
pastimes. His culinary creations were the highlight of many events, and his warm and inviting personality
made every guest feel like part of the family. His home was a hub of laughter, love, and the delicious
aromas of his latest recipes.
Ravon was deeply involved in the community, often found coaching his children’s baseball and softball
teams. He instilled in his players not only the skills of the game but also the values of teamwork,
perseverance, and sportsmanship. As an avid lover of sports, and a huge, loyal Cleveland Browns fan, he
became a Season Ticket holder never missing an opportunity to cheer on his favorite team.  
Ravon met Ashley in 2009 working at the Holiday Inn. Who thought two kids working the morning shift,
flirting through the glass windowpane, and sleeping in the car in his sister’s driveway would lead to the
start of a beautiful love story; one he would often tell anyone who would listen. Their friendship was built
over countless nights talking about anything and everything. Although their lives soon after went in
different directions, they reconnected in 2014 upon her return to Cleveland acknowledging their
inseparable love. Ravon and Ashley began traveling the country making memories over different fishing
holes, passion for diverse cuisine, and his tolerance for Ashley’s hikes. Ravon and Ashley wed on April
24 th , 2021 in front of our family, closest friends, and God.
Ravon was the very essence of our family’s unity, a beacon of light and inclusivity whose warm presence
and boundless love drew us all closer. With an unwavering commitment to fostering connections, he
processed the extraordinary ability to be the glue that held everyone together. Like a huge, uprooted oak
tree that fell and left a gaping hole in the earth, so is the hole that is left in our hearts at the loss of our
beloved Ravon.
Ravon was preceded in death by his Grandparents James Frisco Sr., Martha Frisco (nee Miller) Fredrick
S. Williams, Leola Williams (nee) Walker.

Ravon leaves to mourn, his loving wife Ashley Frisco (nee Goins); loyal and dedicated parents, Michael
B. Frisco, and Freida L. Frisco (nee Williams) ; 5 siblings: Sherlander, Michelle, Melvyna, Endion
(Tahirah), and Lorinda; 4 children: Raniyah, Ravon Jr., Emmanuel, and his bonus son, Terrell. A bundle
of nieces, nephews, great nieces, and great nephews, and a bonus grandson. Among his loved ones, he
also leaves to mourn a host of Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Mother-in-law, Brother-in-laws, Sister-in-laws,
family members, close friends that will forever miss his presence and hearing him say “Here we go
Brownies, here we go…...”.
As we say farewell to Ravon C. Frisco, Sr. we celebrate a life that was lived to the fullest. His memory will
continue to guide and comfort us, and his story will be told for generations to come. We take comfort in
knowing his light will shine brightly in the values instilled in his children and the love he shared with his
family and friends.
The family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude for the outpouring of love and support during this
time. His presence will be profoundly missed, but the memories of his laughter, wisdom, and unwavering
kindness will remain with us always.
