Herman, pops, dad, grandpa, uncle Herman, daddy Herman was a father figure to many. He loved his nieces and nephews like they were his own and he treated them as such. He was a strict disciplinarian who didn’t mind straightening you out when needed. The boys knew when Herman brought the gloves out, they were in some serious trouble.
Herman loved music (jazz and blues) and spending time with his grandchildren. He had a special affinity for nice cars and would often cruise around town in his whip to visit his favorite sister and family members. He enjoyed and looked forward to a daily cup of Joe from White Castle, but nothing gave him more delight than attending family gatherings.

One great-grandchild Alana; a host of special nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and special friends.
