Rick Herman

February 13, 1974 — September 3, 2023

Rick Herman passed away on Sunday, September 3, 2023 at 49 years of age. While he was taken too soon, his memory will live on through all of his loved ones. 

Rick was born in Kettering, Ohio and was the youngest of Jim and Arlene Herman’s five children. He grew up with his elder siblings Mark, Deanne, Karen, and Jann. After high school he attended Northeastern University where he graduated from the College of Engineering in 1999. Rick met his wife Stephanie Haver in Columbus, Ohio where they were married in 2006. They built a beautiful life together and brought two beautiful girls into the world, Eva and Nola Herman. The girls grew up in a home filled with their father’s love of the Red Sox, vacations to Cape Cod, music, and his famous sense of humor. Eva and Nola will forever be influenced by their 711 and all of his passions. 

Rick passed away peacefully in his home where he was cared for by hospice. The room was full of love, music, tears, stories, and laughter. He passed away shortly after midnight surrounded by his three best friends, niece, sister, wife, girls, and dog.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, October 14, 2023  at the Columbus Italian Club at 1739 West Third Avenue in Columbus, Ohio.   The event will start at four in the afternoon and conclude at six in the evening.  In support of Rick and his wife's wishes donations are asked to be made to support their daughters’ education through the 529 links below along with donations to Pelotonia to support cancer research.
