May 18, 2002

Lionel M. Depot, an Allfirst Bank vice president who supervised banks in Carroll and Baltimore counties, died Thursday of cancer at his Westminster home. He was 55.

Mr. Depot, who was known as Lee, recently oversaw the opening of the new Allfirst branch in Eldersburg.

He began his career with Allfirst's predecessor, First National Bank, in 1987, and retired on a medical disability this year because of failing health.

Born and raised in New Britain, Conn., Mr. Depot was a graduate of St. Thomas Aquinas, a high school there, and earned his bachelor's degree in economics from Saint Michael's College in Colchester, Vt.

He served in the Army in the late 1960s, and worked in restaurant management before joining First National Bank. He later represented Allfirst in the establishment of the Carroll County Deposit Corp.

A community activist, Mr. Depot was a past president of the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce and past chairman of the Carroll County United Way Campaign. He also helped organize the annual Boy Scouts of America Fund Drive Breakfast.

He enjoyed photography and fishing.

Mr. Depot was a communicant of St. John Catholic Church, 43 Monroe St., where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 11 a.m. today.

He is survived by his wife of 25 years, the former Pamela Myers; a daughter, Elizabeth Jean Depot of Westminster; a brother, John Depot Jr. of Kent Island; two sisters, Yvonne Williams of Dale City, Va., and Dr. Mary Jane Mercurio of South Salem, N.Y.; and several nephews and nieces.

Memorial donations may be made to the Carroll Hospice, 95 Carroll St., Westminster 21157, or to the United Way of Carroll County, P.O. Box 2047, Westminster 21158.
