Charles R. Herman, Sr.

May 12, 1952 ~ October 3, 2020 (age 68)


It is with deep sadness that our family announces the death of Charles “Chuck” R. Herman, Sr.

Chuck was welcomed into the arms of our Lord at 5:36 pm on Saturday, October 3rd, to reunite with his loved ones who had passed before him - most notably his young son, Kevin, who he tragically lost at 14 months of age.  They can now share the many things that as father and son, they’d missed out on.

Chuck loved family, and friends. Once you became his friend, he considered you his friend forever - regardless of time or distance. He loved being around people, and relished lake life. Especially time at his son’s cottage in Michigan.

His profession was as a Construction Laborer and later as an Operating Engineer.

Chuck leaves behind to cherish his memory two sons Charles (Charlie) R. Herman Jr, and his wife Patsy (Mona), of South Bend  and Scott Herman  and wife Billi Jo, of Port St. Lucie, Florida, two grandchildren, grandson Adam Herman of South Bend, and granddaughter Olivia Herman of Port St. Lucie, Florida, four sisters and three brothers

Mary (Don) Dabrowiak of Kingston Springs, TN, Grace (Rick) Nogle of South Bend,

Glenda Frederick of Elkhart, Pamela Kolozsvary of South Bend, Peter (Kathy) Herman, Granger, IN, Greg Guzowski, South Bend, IN, Terry Guzowski, Santa Clause, IN, Eight nieces, seven nephews, and 15 great nieces and nephews.
