February 17, 1942 - June 10, 2021
Francis "Frank" Hermann, age 79, of Garnett, Kansas, passed away on Thursday, June 10, 2021, peacefully at his home surrounded by his daughters. He was born on February 17, 1942, in Westphalia, Kansas, the son of Albert John and Mary Catherine (Wilper) Hermann. Frank married Thelma Askins on July 1, 1966, at Holy Angels Catholic Church, Garnett. The union was blessed with three daughters. After graduating from Westphalia, Frank served in the National Guard from 1960 through 1963. Starting in 1966, Frank and Thelma owned and operated Garnett Ready Mix and Hermann Trucking Company until its sale in 2001. After selling the Ready Mix, Frank spent many years hauling fertilizer for Brummel Farm Seed. He continued raising cattle and farming until his later years. As he would say, he needed to keep busy. "The day I don't show up to work you better call Reuben." He was also a life-long Kansas City Royals fan and rarely missed listening to a game. He was preceded in death by his wife, Thelma Askins Hermann on July 31, 2000; his parents, Albert and Mary Catherine Hermann; two brothers, Albert Hermann and Harold Hermann; and sister-in-law, Betty Hermann. Frank is survived by his children, Catherine Krause and husband Terry of Columbus, Kansas; Christina Sewell and husband William of Madison, South Dakota; Cheryl McMurdo and husband Shane of Topeka, Kansas; six grandchildren, Jerrod, Alexander, Kaitlyn, Derek, Charlotte, and Matthew; two great grandchildren, Addilyn and Morgan; siblings, Mary David and husband Gerald of Girard, Kansas; Richard Hermann of Garnett, Kansas, Dorothy Mathers of North Platte, Nebraska, Sister Alberta Hermann of Atchison, Kansas, Clarence Hermann and Wilma of Garnett, Kansas, sisters-in-law, MaryAnn Hermann of Garnett, Kansas, and Mary Bennett and husband Jim of Princeton, Kansas; numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:30 A.M., on Tuesday, June 15, 2021, at Holy Angels Catholic Church, Garnett, Kansas, with burial following in the Holy Angels Cemetery. The family will greet friends on Monday evening from 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M., at the Feuerborn Family Funeral Service, Garnett. Memorial contributions may be made to Good Shepherd Hospice.
