Michael James Hermannes
7-8-56 to 6-3-21
Beloved son of Larry and Louise Hermannes, dear brother of Dennis Hermannes and the late Jeanne’ Campbell, dear brother in law of William Bock and the late Sandra Thompson.
Mike married the loved of his life, Lisa Hensley (Bock), in 1998. They later adopted Logan and Brittany. Their family continued to grow and became known as the Hermannes Zoo, with the constant additions of rescue cats and dogs.
Mike served 4 years in the US Coast Guard 1974-1978. He later settled in the I.T. field at Mercy and MasterCard.
He was known best for his love for sports, life, family and his infectious laugh. In family tradition, he enjoyed bowling and golf. While he enjoyed playing softball his passion was coaching—especially when it was a winning team. He most enjoyed gatherings with family and friends, especially when a competitive card or poker game was involved. Always a big kid at heart, Mike enjoyed shopping for presents for nieces and nephews and later great nieces and nephews. He was an avid St Louis Cardinal and Blues fan and fondly loved his hometown of Affton.
He will be missed by all who knew him.
A visitation will be held on Tuesday, June 8, 2021, from 10:00 a.m. to 1 p:m.; a service will be held afterwards. He will be laid to rest at Jefferson Barracks.
