      After graduating from South Dakota State College with an engineering degree, Herman joined the Bureau of Public Roads. He married the former Hazel J. Linge in 1935, a marriage that produced four children. In 1933, he was transferred to Austin and later to Fort Worth in 1945, where the family joined Trinity Lutheran Church.

      Herman retired in 1970, and became an avid golfer, which he enjoyed well into his 90s. He remained active in his church until health issues moved him to a care center. His family wishes to express their appreciation to Benbrook Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and VITAS Hospice for the care they gave to their father.
