Hermann was born in Spoeren, Germany. He immigrated to Canada in 1961 and settled with his family in Jerseyville. He graduated with an M.A. from McMaster University in 1971. Then, he taught languages for 30 years as a highschool teacher at Aldershot and Nelson High School in Burlington. As his health declined, he moved to Orillia with Christa in 2020 to be closer to family.
He lived his faith and was a dedicated member of St John’s Lutheran Church, Hamilton. He will be remembered for the twinkle in his eye and his mischievous grin. He was passionate about fishing at the cottage and sports, especially the Bayern Muenchen soccer team. He treasured his wife of 50 years, his children and grandchildren. Hermann was truly loved by all that knew him. The family wishes to extend their heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to all involved in his medical care and support.
