Herman John Loether Obituary
Herman Loether passed away at home in Rancho Palos Verdes on March 25, 2011. He died peacefully with his family at his bedside. The cause of death was cancer.

He taught the first 10 years at California State University Los Angeles and 30 years at California State University Dominguez Hills. He enjoyed and took pride in his students' accomplishments. Herman had many interests and especially enjoyed genealogy and traveling. He was a patient, caring, dependable, unassuming person who had a wonderfully dry sense of humor.
