Herman received his education in the Fairfax County School System and later started his career as the lead maintenance technician for Ralph A. Wells where he worked for over 55 years. He was an only child and fondly talked about his loving Great Grandmother, Cary Weaver, who raised him to become the great man that he was. Herman was married to the late Geraldine Washington and from that union, they were blessed with six children. Herman was greatly admired for his kind and gentle spirit and his warm personality. He enjoyed conversation and spending time with his family. He enjoyed making people happy with the things he could do for them. He worked on his own cars and trucks and he taught himself everything he knew about them. He was a master of fixing ninety-nine percent of anything.
