Dr. Francis Denebrink
Dr. Francis Denebrink, for almost a quarter of a century a leading physician of Sheridan, died last Sunday forenoon, at 11:20 o'clock, at Long Beach, California, following an illness of many months duration. Word of his death reached Sheridan in a telegram from Mrs. Denebrink to B.T. Denebrink and came as a distinct shock to relatives and many friends of the family here as the latest previous reports had indicated an improvement in his condition.
Dr. Denebrink was 53 years of age and is survived by a widow and three children. The oldest, Francis, is a cadet in the United States Naval Academy, at Annapolis. The next, Gerald, was a student in the Sheridan high school until recently. The youngest is a daughter, Elvira. The younger children, with their mother, were with Dr. Denebrink in California.
Deceased came to Sheridan in 1893, having just been appointed to the position of medical examiner for the Burlington railroad and stationed here. At that time he was but a young physician, fresh from his studies, largely carried on in Germany where he graduated with honors from the Munich medical school.
Leaving his offical position with the railroad after a few years, Dr. Denebring [sic] entered upon private practice and in a short time built up an immense clientage. He continued to hold a commanding position in his profession until failing health compelled him to drop much of his activity.
At the same time he was building a reputation as a physician, Dr. Denebrink was building a reputation as a true man and a friend to all in distress or need of his services. His charity and kindness of heart knew no bounds and none ever appealed to him in vain.
Dr. Denebrink was one of the best educated men in the state of Wyoming and was, too, one of the greatest students. his range of reading covered a wonderfully wide field and he was possessed of a wonderful memory and a mind which enabled him to apply the fruits of his research.
While he had been in poor health for more than a year he did not give up his practice entirely until last fall, when his condition became critical. Advised to seek a lower altitude, where, it was hoped, his life might be prolonged, the family moved to Long Beach about the first of this year. The effect at first appeared beneficial but the change was only temporary and death followed a relapse into his former condition of weakness.
