Herschel David Kamman, 85, Huntingburg

Herschel David Kamman, 85, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on the morning of Tuesday, May 21, 2019.

He was a lifelong IU fan and St. Louis Cardinal’s fan and you’d often see him in his beloved IU sweatshirts and red Air Jordan’s.

He proudly served for the United States Army Infantry Division from 1951-1953.  He hardly sat still and was a dedicated labor worker for the Holland Dairy of 52 years before retiring.  He cared for his hometown and served 28 years as a Cass Township Trustee.

He was born August 10, 1933 in Huntingburg to Gilbert and Augusta “Gussie” (Oxley) Kamman. He was preceded in death by his parents; and one brother, Harold “Butch” Kamman.

Herschel married the love of his life, Sharon (Simpson) Kamman, 61 years ago, with whom they had two boys: Rex (Kim) Kamman and John Kamman.

He taught them hard work, dedication, and above all, love and commitment to family.

He had extreme pride and care for his several grandchildren, Dena (Eddie) Rasche, Leah (Matt) Kunz, Sara (Nathan) Durcholz, Cameron Kamman, Keshia (Brock) Matthews, and Katie, Andi, and Benjamin Flamion; and 11 great-grandchildren.

He was fond of saying phrases like “Turn off the idiot box” “No monkey business” and “Be careful” to his kids and grandkids.

Herschel will be remembered by family and friends as a father, proud patriot, Army veteran, but above all, loving husband to the love of his life.

Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. ET Friday, May 24, at Nass & Son Funeral Home in Huntingburg. Funeral services at 10 a.m., Saturday, May 25, at Zoar United Methodist Church in Zoar. Burial at Zoar Cemetery. Military graveside rites will be conducted by the Holland American Legion Memorial Detail.
