Guestbook for Reuben M. Herrmann
Dear Aunt Barb, Beth, Michael and family: I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you at this most difficult time. I have very fond memories of seeing Uncle Reuben and Aunt Barb at the family get-together's at Grandma and Grandpa's house in Genesee, the holiday parties and visiting in Marquette and Grosse Point. I remember Uncle Reuben as a true gentleman and a man of integrity. It was wonderful growing up with family close and all the wonderful memories that we hold dear. Unfortunately as children grow up and life gets busy, we no longer see extended family as much as we would like. God Bless Uncle Reuben...he is now with my Dad (Howard)and Grandma and Grandpa.

Dear Mrs. Herrmann, Beth, Mike, family and friends, Mom shared the sad news with me yesterday. I am so very sorry. Reuben? I had no idea. All I knew him as was “Mr. Herrmann”, and always addressed him as such. It seemed only fitting to be on my best behavior - a tall strong quiet man who referred to me as “Christopher Columbus” all those years! Once upon a time, my brother asked me where I would go if I could go back in time. I mulled that over, but before I answered, I asked him the same. Without hesitation, he said, “Carriage Lane!”. He was right. Oh, the fun we had and great neighborhood to do it in. At the time, I don’t know if any of us realized how much of our mental and social DNA was (and would be) affected by our friends, and their families, at such a young age. Beth – just days ago, I was reminiscing on growing up. And, in particular, that one of my best friends was… a girl! Mike -- I still have your old blue bike with the yellow mag wheels. I don’t recall what caused the fork to break, do you? You were fearless lol Mrs. Herrmann – thank you for many years of constant gentle kindness. You are always sweet and happy to see me. Greeted me with a smile every.single.time. Mr. Herrmann – thank you for sharing your family, and all the Surrey Lane memories. RIP Love, Christopher "Columbus"

We were very sad to hear of Reub's passing. He was a true gentleman and respected by many in the law enforcement community in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We are thinking of the family and extending our deepest sympathy.

I was a Deputy with the Marquette County Sheriff's Office, Michigan many years ago and was fortunate to have met Reuben while he worked in our area. As a young Deputy, I was impressed with his pleasant approach to things and down to earth personality. My deepest sympathy to the family of Reuben Herrmann. Jack L. Schneider

Reuben was the youngest of the Herrmann boys. He left Genesee Depot many years ago, but left a lasting impression. Many people today ask about him and remember him as a kind, gentle person. He was wonderful brother and a great person to have as a confidante. I miss the phone calls, which were many. He always asked about us and all his old friends. He will be missed by his family and many others. God Bless Reuben and he is now with his mom and dad and brother Howard. Harvey

I work at the La Crosse Public Library and got to know Reuben years ago. We had some great conversations and enjoyed exchanging titles of what to read next. I'd only seen him sporadically since I've moved from the North Branch Library but each time it was a pleasure catching up. I'm very sorry for your loss.

I enjoyed the times when Uncle Reuben would take me fishing, go to Milwaukee Braves games or toss the ball with me when I was a youngster. I admired him growing up as he went in the service, college, grad school, his career and all the travels and places he he went. But what impressed me most about him was his quiet dignity. He was a real man. God bless him and his family during this time.

1st knew Rube in Detroit in 1971. He beat me out for Marquette but we ended up in Saginaw. Worked out for the best as we came back to Madison in 79 and Rube ended up in Lacrosse. Rube was 1 of the best agents and guys I ever knew and wished I had more contact with him in Wi. RIP Rube!
