He was fondly called “Farm Boy.” He went on to driving a truck over the road hauling produce up and down the east coast of the United States.

I sure am going to miss him coming in and stealing anything sweet from the kitchen I loved to cook for him and every now and then I took up for him when he did something to make Momma mad. He was a big tease for sure! I will miss his stories …his peanut butter and crackers…pretzels that taste like Downey and all the errands he did for me.

He had so many stories to tell and there was never a dull moment. He always appreciated the kindness and respect shown by all he came in contact. They would stand up to shake his hand and he always remarked about them being gentlemen. The children love “bones under the cellar steps” and would beg him to tell it again. I miss him so much. ????
I loved him so much especially as a kid. We used to play werewolf and he would tell us scary stories amd howl at the moon. When I was younger he gave me a special hat of his and I used to wear that hat all the time. I remember he used to sit on the porch and eat limburger cheese and pumpernickel bread. I used to be so grossed out. Lol. He would always call me sniffany(Tiffany) <3 He will be missed. Rip Poppy

He always had a smile for anyone, even if he was passing them on the street, one of my 1st memories of him, I had went to New York for a visit with my brother Larry, Herman came over to pick us up for lunch, long story short, we stopped at a car lot ,on our way to lunch, the salesman came out , Herman and this salesman talked about 10 minutes, saying good by Herman reached into his pocket and pulled out a 20.00 dollar bill, and gave it to the salesman, he kindly accepted it , after he got in the car Larry said,You ain’t looking for No car and…” why did you offer him that money?” Herman said, look you see anyone else on this lot? Larry said NO, …Herman said well if that man doesn’t make any money off commission today, at least he has money for a meal, he gave an old man his time today, he deserves to be compensated, with a big grin, Herman taught us both that day, to value a person’s worth, and never looked down on someone , he never passed judgement his love was unconditional. You were a good person no matter your flaws and treat you with total respect. Fly High Poppy. Heaven gained another perfect Angel

I’ll miss him walking out of his little house to say its TaTa and the babies! He had a good soul and a twisted sense of humor which made him a perfect addition to the family. He loved Mamaw with all his heart ❤ He would tell me that everytime I saw him. He liked to play pranks on everybody, but they would backfire on him and he would be the one running away. Very helpful man would take you or help you with anything you needed done with no questions. We will miss you so much but you have some pretty damn good company to hangout with! Love you Poppy????

Herm had a sense of humor that was boundless. He loved to push the boundaries- even when it cam to feeding the squirrels. He always knew how to get everything rowled up and then had that evil little smile and chuckled under his breath. Herm , you will be missed by all of us.

My husband Henry and I went to Florida in July, we talked with Uncle Herman and told him we were coming to visit him, he was so excited, said he was looking forward to our visit. Henry and his Uncle had a very special bond they were hunting and fishing buddies. When we got there you can see how happy he was. They both sat at the end of the table talked about old times. Uncle Herman remembered when they went fishing on Henry’s boat in Moriches and how they got stranded and were floating out of the inlet, Uncle Herman kept waving to a woman on another boat to come help them, while Henry kept saying to him don’t do that I don’t a woman towing us in( I think he was embarrassed) Uncle Herman kept saying what are we going to do, what are we going to do, we are floating out to sea, so my Henry finally said to him “ Next stop Is England “ with a smile on his face. Obviously they got back in, Uncle Herman and Henry had many adventures and this was one of them. RIP missing you ❤️????❤️Love Henry and Anette

He will deeply be missed. Always a smile and a hug. Always will remember him sneaking peanut butter crackers while I wasn’t looking. And that grin afterwards. Heaven got another angel ❤️
