Herman Gene Frandsen passed away on November 13, 2023 at
home surrounded by his family. We know he was greeted with open arms by
grand-children Kayden and Shelby, his best friend Verdell, family members, and
many friends who preceded him. He can now see, hear, and run without pain.
Herman was born to Loomis and Lillian Frandsen in Firth
Idaho. He married the love of his life, Lois Armstrong, and together spent the
next 61 years raising and loving children, grand-children, and great
grandchildren. They had six children Tammy (Scott), Monte (Karen), Kenton
(Jeanette) Darren (Becky), Debra, Reed (Jodi).
He has 20 grandchildren, 26 great grandchildren.
Herman worked as a car mechanic in his younger years and
served in the Air Force for four years.
Eventually he became an Aircraft Mechanic and Electrician at HAFB, until
he retired. After retirement, he
continued working part-time jobs at Bowmans and mowing lawns for Kaysville
City. Herman also had many church
callings through-out the years.
Herman loved to go on road trips. Sometimes he would take
the long-way home or go on a Sunday drive with the family. He and Lois would
often go with Dee and Valene and always had adventures, traveling to see new
and sometimes old destinations. Sometimes they just got in the car and started
driving-making travel plans and memories on the way.
His favorite thing was to be around family. He loved
holding the “babbies” and playing Hickory-Dickory-Dock with the grandkids.
Recently, the grand-kids found new fun of trying to dodge grandpa’s cane. Grandpa’s limited eyesight and mobility made
it risky, but the fun was worth the occasional sting. Herman enjoyed many family parties which were
held as often as possible.
Herman will always be in our hearts! We feel Lots of love
and have lots of fun memories.
A viewing in his honor will be held Saturday November 18
from 9:00am to 10:30 am. There will be a
dedication of the grave in the Clinton Cemetery at 11:00 am. Following this we
will go to the church for a Celebration of Life luncheon.
