On Friday, January 26, 2018 beloved husband, father, “Pop Pop”, son, brother, uncle and friend, Dwayne Allen Herman was called home by our Heavenly Father. Dwayne was born January 13, 1958 in Hallettsville, Texas and grew up in both Hallettsville and Houston. Dwayne graduated from Sam Houston High School which is also where he met the love of his life, Mary (Beth) Herman. Dwayne and Beth settled in Texas City where they built a home, a family and a successful business in the 9th Street Meat Market.
From a very early age, Dwayne was known as a hardworking, ambitious and determined man who was always proud of his family, Czech heritage and his community. Dwayne enjoyed hunting and considered his dear friends and fellow hunters as extended family, and he was always ready for a trip to the casino. He never met a stranger and always taught his children to pay forward any successes by giving back to the community which he was so proud to be a part of.
Dwayne was preceded in death by his Mother, Mildred (Morisak) Herman. He is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 41 years, Mary (Beth) Herman, daughters Danielle Herman and Tabitha Helms, Megan Herman-Adkins and husband Victor, Destiny Herman and fiancée Garrick Franta and grandson Zaide Adkins, all of Texas City. Dwayne is also survived by his father Henry Herman of Houston, seven brothers and sisters, a number of nieces and nephews, many cherished friends and valued customers.
Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Emken Linton Funeral Home with visitation on Tuesday, January 30, 2018 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm and services on Wednesday, January 31, 2018 at 10:00 am, with burial to follow at Galveston Memorial Park Cemetery.
Pallbearers will be Mike Belk, Charles “Choddy” Clark, Scott Hebert, Bobby Metz, Roy Bob Metz, John Picard, Dennis Smith and MSGT Thomas Smith USMC (ret). Honorary Pallbearers will be numerous members of Galveston County Law Enforcement whom Dwayne admired and in many ways entrusted “his girls” to.
The family would like to extend special thanks to the incredible staff at U.T.M.B Galveston, Dr. Anika Bell-Gray, the AMED Hospice care team, the Texas City Police Department, George Fuller and Scott Walker. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Dwayne’s name to the 50 Club of Galveston County.
We have heard the saying you do not know what you have until it is gone. Dwayne set the mark to be followed by all of us by leading by example and going to work at an early age all through high school. We will miss the many BBQs at Dads when Dwayne always brought the meat! He and brother Gary always made sure to cook the BBQ how dad said.. O’ we will miss those Barbeques ... Dwayne was a class act and admired by us, we regret not telling him that, however, we are sure he knows. More impressive was the way Beth and the girls orchestrated Dwaynes funeral. It was the most beautiful send off we have ever seen. You will be missed Dwayne and we know you and Mom are up there smiling ear to ear. See y’all soon, Mark & Missy !

Beth and girls, I just found out about Dwayne’s passing. I’m so sorry. He was a great guy and quite honestly one of the most honest and truest friends a person could know. I’m sorry I missed him the last time I was in town. God bless you all.

We only met Dwayne a handful of times, I know him through his eldest daughter Danielle someone I am proud to claim as our daughter in-law. He was a unique & colorful character, who it seemed never met a stranger. All were welcome & made to feel @ home in his presence. He will be missed by all who had the pleasure to know him. RIP my brother.
