They moved to Tabor, AB and eventually to Abbotsford, BC in 1954. He was in the construction industry until his retirement and was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed camping, hunting, fishing, gardening and travelling. Herman passed away peacefully after losing his battle with cancer. He was loved and respected by many and will be remembered dearly by all.
