Herman Beveroth

STERLING – Herman Beveroth, 86, of Sterling, passed away peacefully Saturday, May 24, 2014, at his home, surrounded by his family.

Herman was born Feb. 18, 1928, in Sterling, to Herman E.A. Beveroth and Amelia Louise (Machamer) Beveroth. He married Leora Wolber on June 6, 1948, at First Lutheran Church of Jordan. They would have celebrated their 66th anniversary this coming June. 

Herman joined the Navy in February 1945, and served in the Pacific theater with the 56th U.S. Naval Construction Battalion. He was stationed on Wake and Guam islands, among others. Herman grew up in the Morrison area, and farmed north of Sterling until he retired, but continued to help his sons on the farm for many years thereafter. Herman was a devout and committed member of First Lutheran Church of Jordan for nearly 66 years. He served on the church council numerous times. He also served as a board member for Coleta School. Herman enjoyed his family, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and his numerous coffee buddies in Milledgeville. He also loved attending many Navy Seabee reunions in the U.S. and the Pacific with his wife.
