Herman Jr., Albert - Mohnton  
Albert A. Herman Jr., 71, passed away peacefully in his favorite recliner, watching the Philadelphia Phils, with his remote in hand, in the family home he loved for the past thirty years. Al was born at Camp Lajeune, NC, during World War 2 to Jessie Williams Herman and Marine Albert A Herman, both deceased, of Mohnton, PA. He is survived by two siblings, a brother (and neighbor), Thomas Herman, husband to Tracey Ormsbee; and a sister, Nancy Forester, wife of John Forester, Kenhorst, PA. Al entered the Navy during the Vietnam War era, however was fortunate to spend the majority of his service cruising around the Mediterranean Sea while managing the ship's store. Al graduated from Albright College, using the GI Bill, and became a proud energy economist who managed the building of electric systems in over 35 countries, many being third world countries. His last responsibility and highlight of his career was heading up the reconstruction of Iraq's electric system for the Department of State, where General David Petraeus declared him the "Angel of Light." No matter where Al traveled, he always found someone in need, whether an orphanage full of children in need of toys, clothing, or educational and Braille supplies, or at times just an individual who might have needed a single item, like a table with chairs to enjoy a family meal. Whatever the need, Al sought them out and always did more than expected, many times having his church join in to fulfill the need. He was generous and kind, and always had a smile, although sometimes with a comical sarcastic message attached. Al was a proud man who lived his life on his own terms. Al was an avid sports fan, supporting all local teams. When he was not traveling, he played baseball, fast pitch softball, golf and basketball, gaining him the nickname, "Al the Hammer." He also loved to debate politics, especially with those who were opposed to his political views. Al is survived by his wife, Janet Albert-Herman; two sons, Derek E. Herman, Mount Penn, PA, and Jonathan L. Herman, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA; and a deceased son, Mitchell A. Herman. He was also loved by his step-children: Tamara Albert Flores, wife of Matthew Flores, Wyomissing, PA; Amanda Albert Don, wife of Kenneth Don, Manahawkin, NJ; and Matthew Albert, who resides at home. Pop Pop Al also had five grandchildren: Tiana, Julia, Sophia, Aiden and Asher, who he deeply loved and always gave them his frequent winnings from Clover Park's Thursday night poker. In memory of Al and in lieu of flowers, the family suggests that a donation be made to his church designated to Lutheran World Relief, Swamp Lutheran Church, 275 Swamp Church Rd., Reinholds, PA 17569. Visitation will begin at 3:00 on Saturday, August 29, 2015, with a service following at 4:00 at Giles & Yeckley Funeral Home, 21 Chestnut Street, Mohnton, PA, 19540.
