He was engaged to a woman, but this marriage never took place. Herman was a very frugal man, never spending a dime if he didn't need to. On the way to work he would stop at one newsstand and read the front page of the newspaper, at the next he would read the second page and so on. He would never spend the nickel or dime to buy a paper. He bought stock with his paychecks and ended up a very wealthy man. He left a collection of stocks and bonds to his brother Gus and to the 2 children of his sister, Amelia Ducker Lang.
      Herman had stomach cancer, and had part of his intestine removed in the early 50's - he smoked a pipe and liked to build things out of wood, especially windmills and bird feeders. He died of a spontaneous hemorrhage of the brain at the age of 79. He was living at 7 Linden Court, Qunicy, Massachusetts at the time of his death and is buried in the family plot in the Village Cemetery in Weymouth, Massachusetts.
