Birth: May 7, 1883
Death: Sep. 21, 1937

San Antonio Light
September 22, 1937


Funeral services will be held Thursday for Frank B. Ackermann, deputy sheriff shot in a gunfight with Ray Pryor, former Conna cafe owner, last Sautrday afternoon.
Ackermann succumbed from abdominal wounds Tuesday morning at Santa Rosa Hospital.
Meanwhile, a strong guard had been placed about Pryor, charged with murder, at Robert B. Green hospital. Officers guarded the front door, elevator and door to Pryor's room, following new reports that an attempt would be made on his life by friends of the slain deputy. Officers said Pryor would be removed to the county jail as quickly as possible.
Services for Ackermann will be held at Riebe chapel at 3 p.m. with the Rev. William Durkop officiating. Pallbearers will include Tom Reed, Dennis Brice, Dr. S.S. Morgan, Dr. J. L. Lockhart, Henry Stahl and Albert Theis. Reed is a deputy sheriff, and Brice is the special deputy who went with Ackermann to the I-G-N hotel where the shooting took place.
A guard of fellow officers will be at the funeral. Two deputies have remained constantly with the body since it was taken to the funeral parlors Tuesday.
Ackermann was a life-long residence of Bexar county, living at the time of his death on his ranch near Wetmore. He had served as a peace officer for five years, acting as a special agent for the Landowners and Hunters association before becoming a deputy sheriff on January 1.
Surviving the officer are his widow, Mrs. Iva Ackermann; four brothers, Ed., Alfred and Dewey Ackermann of Fratt and George Ackermann of Wetmore, and sisters, Mrs. Edwin Uecker and Mrs. E. H. Klaus of San Antonio; three step-sons, Kenneth, Joe and Norman Jones.
Interment will be in the Bueche family cemetery.
