Herman and Ann were married for 46 years until her sudden passing in 1993. After two years of solitary life, Herman met the widowed Mary Stoiber at a Catholic Singles Dance and she became his best friend and companion for 20 plus years. They both loved dancing and traveling. Herman was a member of the Milwaukee Fire Dept. for 36 years and was an active member of the Fire Dept. American Legion Post #426.
