Obituary of Frank George DePaepe


Frank George DePaepe



Frank George DePaepe passed away at the age of 56 on September 9, 2020, at his home in Denver, Colorado due to complications with diabetes.


Frank was born March 12, 1964, in Chicago, Illinois to Louis Toth and Mary Ponyi. Mary got divorced and married Thomas W. DePaepe and assumed the DePaepe name. At age 12, they moved as a family to Broomfield, Colorado where Frank enjoyed hunting and dirt bike riding. As a teenager, Frank attained his GED and decided to go into the Army. Frank spent nearly four years with the 82nd airborne division and really excelled in marksmanship.


Shortly after leaving the Army, he decided to go to truck driving school and after graduating, took jobs driving locally. It wasn't long before he figured out that driving locally wasn't for him and started his lifelong career as an over-the-road truck driver, which fit him perfectly. Unfortunately, due to his complications with diabetes his career was cut short and after trying multiple treatments, he lost his battle with the disease too young.


He is survived by his brother, Thomas J. DePaepe, Thomas' wife Michelle and daughter Sierra, his uncle Bill Ponyi, his aunt Mary Ellen DePaepe, cousin Bela Ponyi and cousin Pam Feldman.


Frank had a kind heart and was a great friend to all that knew him.


A Veteran's memorial service will be held at Fort Logan Cemetery on October 13th at 2:00 PM.
