Harold Dean Hermstein

Harold Dean Hermstein, 69, died on April 11, 2022, on the homestead in Council Grove, Kansas.


Harold was born September 1, 1952, to August and Dorothy June Hermstein. He grew up on a farm just outside of Council Grove where he was later joined by 2 brothers, Guy and Marion Hermstein.  Harold later moved to Hesston, Kansas where he raised 2 children, Frances (Hermstein) Heddin and Andrew Hermstein.  He worked at Hesston Corporation, which later became Agco, for 35 years before returning to Council Grove.  Harold enjoyed being with friends and family and became very involved with the Community Christian Church, where he was a member.   He was a very giving person who often went above and beyond to help someone.  


Harold is survived by his brothers, Guy Hermstein and Marion Hermstein; his 2 children and their spouses, Frances and Jonathan Heddin, Andrew and Lavonne Hermstein, and his 8 grandchildren. 


Harold was precedented in death by his parents, August and Dorothy June Hermstein and an aunt, Dorothy Pearl Hermstein.

Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to all of Harold's family upon his sad passing. We had been fiends since Garfield Grade School days and always fun to see to talk about farming.
Most sincerely,
