Jan. 3, 1940-July 5, 2013


Herbert Brinkman, 73, of Glandorf died at 6 a.m. Friday at the Meadows of Kalida.

He was born Jan. 3, 1940, in Miller City to Richard and Beatrice M. (Rechtine) Brinkman, who preceded him in death.

He is survived by two brothers, Kenneth Brinkman of Kalida and Dennis Brinkman of Elida; two sisters, Mary Marguerite Miller of Ottoville and Vivian (Robert) Plescher of Ottawa; and many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.

He was also preceded in death by his step-father, Vincent Hedrick; a brother, Leo Brinkman; a brother-in-law, Donald Miller; and a sister-in-law, Carol Brinkman.

Herb worked for Sanco in Fremont for nearly 40 years. He lived in the Fifth Street Group Home in Fremont and had previously lived in a group home in Helena. He enjoyed many hobbies and crafts and loved WWE Wrestling, The Ohio State Buckeyes, animals and trips to the zoo. Herb also enjoyed traveling and shopping.

Herb was a loving man who, once he knew you, would never forget you. He always had a smile and hug for his family and friends and truly loved to laugh and make his family and friends smile. He will be greatly missed by many, especially his friends and co-workers at Sanco and his best friend of 40 years, Mike Huffman.

Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10:30 a.m. today at St. John Catholic Church, Glandorf. Father Tony Fortman will officiate. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.
