Herman was my step-dad. Although I lived in Monterey, CA with the parents of his first wife, Kathy, he was one of two father figures growing up. He was a giant, and a sweet person. I remember visiting in Hawthorne and then in Fallon. Rest in Peace.

Met Herman for the first time in 1979 when I got stationed at NAS. A real down-to-earth man. Throughout the years. we would run into each other and re-hash old memories. He will be missed.
