Herman had a charmed childhood growing up in the small town of Graham where he was born on March 2, 1936. Being closely connected to family and friends on a daily basis gave a stability that was carried throughout his life. A life rich in joy, experiences, love of God, family, friends, play and hard work. The majority of his work life was in the oil field industry and later restoring torque converters out of his shop. He was active throughout his life in church fellowship and served for a time as a youth minister. He passed away on his beloved piece of land which had been his residence for the past 44 years. He got a smile out of a lot of people.
