Herman and Esther lived in Rose Valley, Waldheim, Hepburn, Hague and Elbow, Sask., Portage la Prairie, Man., and Germany. Herman’s students gave him high marks as a teacher. His interests included serving The Gideons, playing Rook and making noodles with Esther. He excelled at leading groups in an unassuming way. After a stroke in 2010, he became an adept left-handed crokinole player. His final earthly home was Circle Drive Special Care Home, Saskatoon, where he enjoyed a warm relationship with staff and residents. Herman will be remembered as a man of integrity, contentment, cheer and faith in the God he loved.
