Herman E. Smith Obituary
HERMAN E. SMITH, 91, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Wednesday, May 13, 2015. Herman was born in Garden Grove, CA. The Smith family moved to Perris Valley in 1925, where his father started farming and Herman grew to love the farming life. Herman left the valley at 18 to pursue work at an aircraft factory at the beginning of WWII. At 19, because of the war, he came home to help the family with the farm. Shortly after that Herman purchased his first acreage to begin farming. During his 72-year career, he grew potatoes, onions, corn, safflower, sugar beets, grains and alfalfa. He said many times if he had to do it all again, he would. He loved being a farmer. His life was filled with the love of the Lord. Herman is survived by his wife, Shirley; son, Darrell (Janice); daughters, Terri and Nancy; son, Craig (Shelba). He is also survived by 7 grandchildren and many great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by sons-in-law Arthur Williamson (Terri) and David Smith (Nancy). His family and friends will miss his humor, wisdom and love for animals. Services for Herman will be held at Evans-Brown Mortuary, 27010 Encanto Drive, Sun City, on May 21 at 10:00. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Olive Grove Church, Women's Ministry, New Annex Stove, 29734 Nuevo Road, Nuevo, CA 92567.
