Herman Huether

Herman H. Huether, age 100 years, died comfortably at home in Spokane, Washington, on Tuesday December 22, 2020.

He was born on December 28, 1919, at the family farm in Plaza, Washington. After graduating from Rosalia High School he married Audrey M. Thompson and they raised four children.

Herman served in the Navy and was stationed on Guam during WWII servicing airplanes as a member of the Carrier Airforce Service Unit. During his many years he worked as a heavy duty equipment mechanic, farmed land with his family near Rosalia, Washington, moved to Spokane and served food from his family owned Pirates Cove drive-in restaurant, drove cement trucks and laid telephone lines. He and Mom had many wonderful adventures in their trailer traveling around the United States and taking the grandkids camping. Dad could fix anything and taught us how to do electrical wiring, plumbing and repair any diesel or gas vehicle or any other broken somethings.

After Mom died he enjoyed his friends and dancing at the Senior Center and the Order of the Elks. He spent a lot of time creating wood bowls in his wood shop.

A special thanks to the physicians and staff at the Northwest Cancer Center and Hospice of Spokane for their exceptional care. Dad was also very appreciative of all the support and encouragement he received from his many friends and extended family.

He is survived by his daughters, Sue Huether and Betsy Schieber; his son David Huether; seven grandchildren; and 12 great-grandchildren. His wife Audrey and his daughter Kathy preceded him in death.

A memorial service will be held sometime during the summer or fall of 2021.
