George A. Hermanson
Feb. 16, 1928 — Feb. 10, 2018
George A. Hermanson of Waukesha passed away unexpectedly at his home on Saturday, February 10, 2018, just six days before his 90th birthday. He was born in Ahmeek, Mich., on February 16, 1928, the son of Jacob and Elma (nee Isaacson) Hermanson.
He proudly served his country in the United States Army. On September 1, 1951, he married Eleanor Jankowski at St. Gerard Catholic Church in Milwaukee; she preceded him in death on January 19, 2012.
George worked for Motor Transport Company for many years and was a member of the Teamsters Local 200 from 1951 until 1985. He enjoyed fishing, working on cars and was known as the family mechanic. George was a hard worker and could always be found helping someone. He had a positive impact on the life of everyone he met and was an absolute joy to be around.
