Herman was a co-founder and President of His Blood Warriors Motorcycle Ministry for over 10 years. He impacted many people's lives and was much loved. The most important thing in his life was his faith and sharing that with others from all walks of life. He was an encourager, saw the good in everyone and lifted them up no matter who they were. He loved his family with all his heart and was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend. He will be sorely missed.
