The Famous People

#1 Martin Mull

Martin Mull is now almost 80 years old at the time of this writing. Martin moved to North Ridgeville when he was around two years old and lived in the city until he was 15.

You may remember Martin from shows like Rosanne or the movie Mr. Mom with Michael Keaton. But Martin has been in a whole host of Tv shows and movies dating back to the 70’s. He actually started his career as a songwriter with country music.

Martin continues to act to this day and is showing no signs of slowing down his career. He is currently in an episode of Netflix’s hit show Grace & Frankie this year 2022.

We think its pretty cool Martin spent a good amount of time growing up in North Ridgeville and a good portion of his roots can be traced back to the city.

#2 Joe Charboneau

Anyone who has loved Cleveland sports knows who Super Joe is. He was the all star player of the Cleveland Indians back in the early 80’s who was won the AL rookie of the year award, who was going to take the Indians all the way.

Joe was one of the coolest guys in town back then and you may remember all the hub bub surrounding Joe with T-shirts, pens, mugs and more.

The only issue was super Joe has some back luck with crazy fans and back injuries and never fully recovered. So, Cleveland never really got to see the real potential of this great athlete.

The cool thing is Joe currently lives in North Ridgeville, Ohio with his wife.
