Myron “Red” Cline, 94, of Tallmadge, Ohio and formerly of East Springfield OH, passed away January 5, 2022, at the home of his daughter. He was born June 30, 1927, in East Springfield, Ohio, a son of the late Noah and Lillie (Polen) Cline. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Carolyn (Stevenson) Cline, his sister Oma (Cline) Porter, brother Morris Cline, nephew Jack Kragel and great grandson, Asher. Red was a Veteran of the US Army Constabulary security force, serving in the early post WWII in West Germany. He was United Methodist by faith and was a lifetime member of the East Springfield United Methodist Church of the Cross, where he served in various capacities.
Red worked hard his entire life in many positions but was mainly known for his excellent construction and carpentry skills. In his early years, he and his brother, Morris, owned Cline Bros. Plumbing and Heating, and later, Cline Bros. Construction Company and Robertson Heating and Supply. He joined the Canton Carpenters Local Union 285 and even kept his membership after retirement. Immediately following retirement, he and his son-in-law, John Sikora, built the home in Ashland where he passed. Other notable work was at the Ohio Valley Dairy, Toronto Titanium Plant, and Nelms No. 2 coal mine in Hopedale the family farm, the "Seven C's," was a combination of hard work and pleasure, bringing a strong work ethic and lifelong memories to cherish by his children and grandchildren.
Red's hobbies and fun included singing wherever he could - in the Tri-State Harmonizers, and the "after glows," his church choir, cantatas, and with friends. He loved helping his children and others prepare their 4-H lambs for the annual Jefferson County Fair and was even awarded an Honorary membership plaque. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and trapping with his sons, watching the Pittsburgh Pirates, playing cards at the East Springfield Community Center and anywhere else, swimming in Lake Erie if the water was warm, and of course, telling stories! He was the life of the party and will be missed by friends and family alike.
He is survived by his children, Stephanie (John) Sikora, Scott (Sharon) Cline, Valerie (Dirk) Hindrichs, Mark Cline, and Heidi Garnek; grandchildren, Andrew, Allison, Noah, Matthew, Stefan, Melissa, Alexis, Adam, Kevin, and 13 great grandchildren.
