Joseph Herrmann, Jr. Obituary

Joseph Herrmann, Jr, 37, Harrington, passed away at Bayhealth – Sussex Campus, on Tuesday, September 22, 2020.  He is the son of Susan and Joseph Herrmann, Sr.

Joseph was a 2001 graduate of Dover High School. An electrician by trade, he most recently worked at Burris Foods as a Selector. 

Joseph enjoyed watching football and baseball, and was a diehard Eagles and Phillies fan. He coached his son in little league baseball and helped with his son’s soccer team.  His favorite hobby was fishing, and when he was younger, he often fished and hunted with his dad and brother. Once he had his own family he spent as much time with them as he could, whether it was going on vacation, going to the fair, playing Pokemon, or just hanging out. He was a great cook, and often fixed dinner for his family. Though he was quiet and laid back, Joseph enjoyed spending time with his friends and could be counted on to help them with any electrical work they had, or helping them in any other way that he could. He was a great husband, dad, son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend, and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

In addition to his parents, Joseph is survived by his loving wife of 8 years, Angel Herrmann; children Connor, Caden, and Colton Herrmann, and Mason and Alyssa Harrington; brother, George (Samantha) Herrmann; sister, Danielle (Stephen) Yoder; several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
