Franklin Delano Peschel Obituary
July 4, 1933 - April 4, 2018
Colonel Franklin Delano Peschel, USAF Retired, died on April 4, 2018, at the age of 84. He was born in Holland, Texas, on July 4, 1933, to Louis and Hedwig "Hattie" Beyer Peschel, and grew up in Granger, Texas. Franklin met the love of his life, Marjorie Alma Bachmeyer, in 1956 and they traveled the world together. They were married for almost 61 years and have four children.
It is only fitting that Franklin shared his birthday, July 4, with our nation as he spent his entire life proudly serving and defending the principles and freedoms of the United States, rising to the rank of Colonel in the United States Air Force.

Franklin is survived by his beloved wife of 60 years, Marjorie Peschel, daughter Darbey (Richard) Wehrle, son Derek (Kathleen) Peschel, son Daron (Susie) Peschel, daughter Deena (Mark) Evans, and seven grand children: Evan (Caitlin), Megan, Brooke, Kiley, Bailey, Ainsley, and Emma; and numerous other close family members and special friends.

Visitation will be held April 23, 6:00 to 8:00 pm and a celebration of Franklin's life will be held April 24 at noon, both at Sunset Funeral Home, 1701 Austin Highway. Condolences may be offered at www.sunsetfuneral
