FAIRLAWN, Ohio (Dec. 30)—Services will be held Dec. 31 for Richard J. Fasenmyer, 55, who died Dec. 26 of complications from liver disease at Cleveland Clinic Florida in Fort Lauderdale, at St. Peter Cathedral in Erie, Pa. The 55-year-old chairman, chief executive and minority owner of Fairlawn-based RJF International Corp., built RJF — which had been the fabricated polymers division of B.F. Goodrich Co. when he purchased it in 1988 ù into a $100 million business with 750 employees and one of the largest manufacturers of commercial wall coverings in the U.S. during the last 14 years. Fasenmyer had joined Goodrich in 1983 and rose to become president of its fabricated polymers unit before acquiring the operation, which also makes rubber and vinyl flooring and stair covering products. He also owned businesses in Maryland, Florida, California, Kentucky and Wisconsin.
