A devoted and loving husband, father, grandpa and great grandpa, Herman was a veteran of the United States Army during the Korean War, serving in Co D 44th Tank Batallion on “Operation Cleanup.” When he returned home, he worked in plastering, carpentry, remodeling and clock repair. He and Alice were dedicated volunteers for the Friends Disaster Relief Organization which carried them all over the country helping those in need after natural disasters. They helped clean up and rebuild homes and churches. He was a member of the former Friends Church in West Mansfield and was currently attending the West Mansfield Church of Christ.
