Herman was a long time Lion’s member; serving as president from 1982-83. He belonged to the Legion and would volunteer to help with caretaking of the golf course and any other community events, until his health no longer allowed him to.
Herman was a avid sportsman. he golfed, curled, played tennis and loved fishing trips up north. He loved participating and watching. His favourite channel was TSN. He excelled in the sports he participated in and won many trophies.
Herman was a loving and supportive husband to Marlene. They were a great team, he made many wooden items for her to paint, and in the summer he helped her to keep their yard groomed and beautiful.
Herman had a wonderful sense of humour and loved to laugh and joke with their many friends. He loved to have friends over to play cards and visit. He was a family man and especially loved to spoil his grandchildren. Even when his health was fading, his face always lit up with a big grin when they came for a visit.
The family would like to sincerely thank the staff at House 18 for the compassionate loving care they gave Herman.
