My deepest condolences to the Franz family. Pete was a true gentleman, a sincere person and a pleasure to work and know him at the IBM Poughkeepsie facility. We were very saddened to hear the news about Pete. My prayers will be always with him .
Sincerely, Joe Witkowski

Dear Mrs. Franz and Family,
So sorry for your loss. I wish I could have known your husband and father. My grandfather was Peter Engelman, stepbrother to Katherine Franz. My family called her Tanta Katie. The other stepbrothers were John Michael Engelman (known as Mickle) and Adam Engelman. Katherine's mother and my great grandfather married and had a son Martin. As a child my family would visit
Uncle Philip and Tanta Katie in Connecticut. My mother Christine Engelman Holterman, Aunt Lorretta Engelman and I visited Ruby and Buddy (as I remember him being called). My son Bob and daughter Chrissy went to Ketcham with your daughter. My neighbors were Helen and Tony Cipollaro, Nick Visconti's aunt and uncle.
With heartfelt condolences
Mrs. Christine Dingee

Catherine, Sharon and Sierra

My deepest condolences. I work with Pete at the IBM Pok plant for a lot of years. He was always a calm guy, a true gentleman. He knew is fishing. He had his fishing stories, but only if you asked him.
