Abstract: We provide a series of examples of finite groups $ G$ and mod $ p$ representations $ V$ of $ G$ whose stable endomorphisms are all given by scalars such that the universal deformation ring $ R(G,V)$ of $ V$ is large in the sense that $ R(G,V)/pR(G,V)$ is isomorphic to a power series algebra in one variable.
