Herman and Dani were blessed with seven grandchildren, Jessica Handegard, John Handegard, Danielle Schmidt, Emily Schmidt, Cameron Lewis, Katelynn Lewis and Samara Grace Reisenweber, and one great-grandchild, Nathan Legend Ray Lewis, also five nieces and nephews and many wonderful and supportive friends and family in the Midwest.
Herman worked in construction and also at Harrahs and Harvey’s casinos at Lake Tahoe until becoming a licensed contractor in 1985. Herman and Dani also built their home on 2 bare acres in their spare time with the help of family.
Herman loved hunting and fishing, gardening and raising most all the food for the family. In his later years learning to make fruit wines.
He provided a wonderful and full life because a good man chooses to do what’s right. He places importance on family and changes the world by his own example. He shapes the lives of his children with the strength of his love and he did it well.
Thank you My husband for 50 wonderful years.
There will be a private wake later in the year.
We would like to thank Kindred Hospice for their support and kindness.
