Georgetown

Herman Gene Black, Jr., 54, of Georgetown, was called Home by our Lord and Savior on Monday, November 13, 2023.  Herman was born on May 3, 1969. 

Herman had a love for cars, which turned his passion into a career, where he was an amazing Car Salesman in Austin and continued after moving to Baltimore, Maryland. Herman later learned how to stripe parking lots from his dear friend, Walter.  Herman worked for Wheeler, then Texas Materials, and later for Applied Materials, where his exceptional work promoted him to Foreman for Applied Materials.  He worked for Applied Materials until his health would not allow him to continue doing the job anymore.

Herman could light up a room when he walked in. He always had a smile and never met a stranger. Always a helping hand when needed. All the kids looked up to Herman as Uncle. So many people loved Herman.

Herman married Sundra Tubbs, and a year later she passed away in August 2022. Herman had three children, Kristen, Alexis, and Keenan; four grandchildren, Amelia Hunter, Jack Atterberry, Greyson Atterberry, and Atlas Atterberry.
