Our beloved Frank George Vaupell, 75, departed this world on October 2, 2022, after a long and full life. He lived life as he loved — spending time with family, hunting, fishing, caring for his dog, and garage-saling.
Frank was born on August 22, 1947, to Harry F. Vaupell Jr. and Judy A. Vaupell at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina. A Vietnam veteran, Frank served honorably as a Ranger in the 101st Airborne division of the United States Army from 1966 to 1969, achieving the rank of Sergeant.
Frank was a true patriot and family hero. He spent a majority of his life a resident of Arizona, where he never met a stranger (or dog) that he could not befriend.
Frank is survived by his wife, Susan L. Vaupell, son, Elliott H. Vaupell Sr., two loving grandchildren, Megan T. Herrin and Elliott H. Vaupell Jr., and brother and sister-in-law, Harry F. Vaupell III and Joyce A. Vaupell.
A Graveside Service with Military Honors will be held at the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona on Thursday, October 13, 2022, at 10:30 AM.
