Iris HuenikenMy deepest sympathy Ida, Ernie ,Helga ,Rosemary, Kim and family. Thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Herman was a kind person. He was a loving companion to my Mom. I have many special memories of them together. They enjoyed travelling, especially Germany, Hawaii and Rome Italy. He loved to spoil the grandchildren Adam, Luke, and Kara as they were growing up.He was very fond of the many cats that my mom and him had adopted.I have memories of him watching hockey with sometimes 2 cats on his lap. With sympathy, Iris
Peter & Gillian HuenikenOur deepest sympathy & love go out to Ida, Ernie, Helga, Rosemary, Kim, Jay and families. We hope you are finding comfort at this sad time with your many memories of Herman. Our family will always treasure our times with "Uncle" Herman. He was a devoted partner to my mom, Dina for 20+ years. They both enjoyed the outdoors at Flanders Rd., Guelph, watching the birds and in Herman's case trying to outwit the squirrels from getting to the birdfeeders. We spent many lovely weekends visiting them in Guelph or when they would visit us in Chatham. Uncle Herman took Adam, Luke & Kara on numerous trips (& adventures) to Chapters and together with Dina they loved going to get ice cream treats. He came to watch many of the kids various sports activities; i.e. soccer, hockey, ringette, curling, etc. and was a very supportive fan. He will remain a special uncle in their hearts. Herman had a deep interest in the world and I, Peter, have many fond memories of the history, world news, geography and sport discussions we shared together. We also remember Herman's kind and gentle nature for all people and of course to all animals. Love Peter, Gillian, Adam, Luke and Kara.
