His first stop was Hamilton, Ontario where he met his future wife Lois Macdonald. He then served with the Royal Canadian Artillery 17 Field Regiment in England, the Central Mediterranean, and continental Europe including Italy, France, Holland, and Germany from 1941 through 1945. Upon his return he went to welding school and worked for Noble Cultivators. He married his sweetheart that he had met in Hamilton and started his family of 6 children in the village of Nobleford. He was a Charter member of the Canadian Legion #257 and served as President multiple times. He volunteered throughout the community by coaching baseball, Village Policeman, Fireman, and several years as Fire Chief. He was also involved on his church board. Herman was injured in a car accident at age 75 and became a paraplegic but learned to manage it well and passed away at the age of 85 just shy of his and Lois‘s 55 wedding anniversary.
