Obituary for HERMAN HARROD

On August 30, 2017, God saw that you were tired and needed to rest, so
he called you Home. The departing of our beloved seems untimely, but
we are comforted in knowing that God, in His infinite wisdom, called
him Home at the proper and appointed time.

Our beloved Herman Harrod was born to the union of the late Thomas
Harrod and Mertina Boots Harrod, on September 10, 1941 in Prince
Frederick, Maryland. He was the eighth of eleven children. He was
educated in the public school systems of Calvert County, Maryland.
After graduation, he moved to Corona, New York and later he settled in
Great Neck. He was employed at the Merchant Marine Academy for
several years. After the contract he worked under was no longer,
Herman decided to pursue a business career of his own working as a
taxi cab driver. He was stationed at the Great Neck Railroad Train
Station, and worked from this location until his retirement in January,
2012.

He was married to Hilda Morris Harrod, and to this union one son,
Trevor, was born. This union was truly a very happy one and lasted
over 43 years. He was also the father of Andre Harrod and Herman and
Terrance Collis from previous relationships. He was the proud
grandfather of three. However, the youngest two grandsons, Trevor Jr.
and Ryley, he truly adored and loved dearly. He loved gardening, and to
make his first garden he needed space, so he asked the late William
Barnes (who was the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of St. Paul) if
he could plant a garden behind St. Paul's Fellowship Hall, and in return
he would take care of the lawn behind the Hall. Herman took care of
the lawn for many years up until he had his first stroke, and was no
longer able to do so. He also loved to fish! Herman and his friends, Lott
& Spencer, would fish from Boston to North Carolina, up until the
season was over each year. He was a kind hearted and soft spoken
person who didn't mind helping others.

Herman was proceeded in death by his brothers, Leon (Sam Jack),
Charles, James, Roosevelt, George and Sister Maggie.

He leaves to cherish his memory; his beloved wife Hilda, four sons,
Andre of Lusby, Maryland, Herman & Terrance of Alabama and Trevor
of Mineola, NY; daughter-in-law Sandra, three grandsons Christian
Collis, Trevor Jr. and Ryley; two brothers; Obbie (Carol) of Wilkes
Barre, Pennsylvania, and Thomas (Ruth) of Prince Frederick, Maryland;
two sisters, Bertha Wallace of Port Republic, Maryland and Mertina
Smith of Lusby, Maryland; one sister-in-law, Helen Mae Harrod of Port
Republic and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
