When I was about 11 in the late 50's our fathers worked together with your uncles on the highway crew graveling Sask roads. I spent a few summers out on the road with my dad who was the timekeeper. He tracked the loads your dad and Willy, Joe, Kon, and Andy hauled. I rode up and down the highway all day long with each one of them and listened to their stories. They all tolerated me and treated me great. At one point my father also cooked for the crew so I would be in the trailer for meals. I'll never forget your dads infectious laugh. The goings on at meal time were always fun. Your dad would laugh so hard he could barely catch his breath. They were a great bunch and worked long hard hours.

Very sorry to hear of Herman's passing. As well as a cousin of our father (Joe Ortman) they were great friends and shared the love of dancing. Our thoughts and prayers are with all your family.
