This gentle giant passed away on Thursday June 18th, 2020 with his loving family at his side; in a facility that is one step from heaven, The Danbury Regional Hospice. He was a resident of Southbury, CT and lived until the ripe old age of 96.
Herman was born March 14, 1924 in Brooklyn, NY to parents Marcus and Celia Rosenfield. He went on to join the United States Army. During WWII Herman was a cryptographer stationed outside of London, England. After the War he enrolled in court stenography and became a supreme court stenographer at the courthouse in White Plains, New York.
