June 21, 1924 - April 22, 2013

J. Frank Ehrman, 88, Indianapolis, formerly of Kokomo, passed away Monday, April 22, 2013, at IU Health West Hospital. He was born in Howard County on June 21, 1924, to Lester and Grace (Parker) Ehrman. On April 14, 1946, he married Nina Jean Morrison, who survives.

Ehrman served with the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II from March 1943 to October 1945, attending Colorado State College in Fort Collins, Colo., in engineering and operations. He was then assigned to HQ 50th Troop Carrier Wing in England and France for the remainder of his military service.

He was employed in the human relations department at Chrysler Corp. at Kokomo and later was promoted to Indianapolis as a personnel executive for 31 years, retiring in 1979. He was also employed by the Indiana Department of Revenue as supervisor of operations and mailing for six years before leaving to write his memoirs titled “Remembrances of An Earlier Time” that he wrote for his children and grandchildren.

He loved spending winters in Florida, which he and his wife did for 17 years. He was a member of the Ben Davis Christian Church for 45 years. He was also the historian and reunion organizer for his Army Corps unit (50th Troop Carrier Wing) for 53 years, editing the “Wingtips Newsletter” that he published and mailed to other Troop Carrier contacts several times yearly. Frank was a “Kentucky Colonel.” He also wrote over 100 short stories about current events and his life growing up in Howard County during the Depression.

He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Nina; a son, Mark (Gayanna) Ehrman; a daughter, Jan (Bruce) Kamplain, Indianapolis; grandchildren, Stacy Hutson, Indianapolis, J. Todd (Ann Marie) Ehrman, Sarah (Bryan) West and Lauren Kamplain, also of Indianapolis; three great-grandchildren, Paige, Cody and Keegan; a sister, Rosemary (Ehrman) Sutton, Burlington; and a sister-in-law, Jean (Taylor) Ehrman, Burlington.
