Herman was born on Dec. 14, 1935, at Ringling to the late Mr. J.M. Griffith and Mrs. Mary (Brock) Griffith. He departed this life Tuesday Feb. 12, 2019, at his home in Ringling.
Herman attended school at Loco and after went on to marry and soon have four children. Herman took his family and followed the oilfield to work and support his family. In the mid 60’s, Herman and his family settled in the Oklahoma City area where he was a very accomplished carpenter.
In about 1970, Herman and his family moved to the Comanche area, where he brought three more kids to their ever growing family. He eventually met the love of his life, Janis Herrington.
Herman loved working with wood, hunting, fishing, skiing, and anything there was to do at the lake, spending time with his family and friends.
