Franklin Depperman

Guest Book

Not sure what to say?

Frank was my brother and we grew up in Peotone,Ill. My deepest sympathy to his wife and daughter and extended family.The last time i saw him was at our father's funeral. He was a honorable soldier and i hope he is at peace.

Frank was my cousin. I was raised in Peotone, Illinois and had many birthday parties with the cousins. Frank's Grandmother, my Great Grandparents, Frank and Minnie Deperman raised Frank and his sister, Margaret Ann. Had many great celebrations with him.

I wanted to sign the guest book and send my regards. I am Frank's niece, the daughter of his sister Margaret Ann. I encourage any of Frank's children -- my cousins -- to reach me if they choose. Please accept my heartfelt sympathies.

I met Frank in the early 1960s, when he was stationed at Fort Bragg, and before he was deployed to Germany. We kept in touch all these years, occasionally meeting when I visited my family in Southern Pines/Pinehurst. He was a wonderful man who was much loved; he touched everyone he met. He left this earth too early and will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers will always be with you.

To the Depperman Family,Please accept my deepest sympathy on the loss of Franklin.I am from Peotone also and now live in Apex,NC. I remember Frank and went to school with his sister Joy.I know he was well respected in Peotone because of his service to his country. May God speed and I pray for peace,for you and all of your family. Alan Osborne

To the Depperman Family: I was so surprised to see this in the newspaper as I immediately recognized the name. I did not know Franklin personally, however, I knew the family as I also grew up in Peotone! My younger sister was in the same grade as Joy and I remember his mother Pearl very well as she and my mother were friends. I married an SF soldier in 1973 and we are now retired here in Hope Mills. I wish I had known Mr. Depperman was here before now :( You have my deepest sympathy. Peggy...

It was an honor to know and work with Frank.He was dedicated to his family and community. He will be missed.

He will be missed by the Special Forces Community.
