October 13, 1943 - February 5, 2022
Frank Hershenson, 78, passed away on February 5, 2022 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Frank and his younger brother Richard were raised in Marblehead, Massachusetts by their parents Melvin and Mary (Shamroth) Hershenson. Frank’s first cousins Carolyn (Shamroth) Kroll, Bob Shamroth, and Frannie (Gass) Rock-Tangretti lived in very close proximity so they all grew up together more as siblings than as cousins. After graduating from high school, Frank attended Dartmouth College and then earned a law degree from Boston College. During law school, Frank met Miriam (Ratner) Hershenson and they married in 1968. The two soon welcomed sons Trent and Scott Hershenson to their family. Throughout the boys’ childhood, Frank loved coaching his sons’ soccer teams. Frank’s career spanned a broad range of industries. He initially served as legal counsel for a national donut chain (though he enjoyed telling his very young children that his job was to stick his thumb in the middle of each donut to make the hole). He later transitioned to custom computer programming during the early days of personal computing and Frank ultimately owned and operated a salon equipment wholesale company. While at the salon wholesaler, Frank spent a significant of time in China and then chose to live there for much of his retirement. During that time, he cherished his extended return visits to the United States to visit friends and family. Frank is survived by his sons Trent Hershenson (Karen) of Cincinnati, Ohio and Scott Hershenson (Megan) of Coral Springs, Florida; his grandchildren Danielle, Jason, Emma, and Carter Hershenson; his brother Richard Hershenson; and his former wife Miriam Hershenson. He was preceded in death by his parents Mary and Melvin Hershenson. The family will have a private service on Wednesday, February 9 at 11:00 a.m. at the Weil Kahn Funeral Home in Cincinnati.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks you to please make a contribution in Frank’s honor to the charity of your choice.
