Our beloved husband, dad, PoPo, and friend Herman Borchardt Jr., 88, was called home to be with his Heavenly Father on Aug. 4, 2019. He will be greatly missed by family, friends and all who knew him.

Herman was born in Zionsville, Texas, on Feb. 18, 1931, to Herman Sr. and Minnie Reddehase Borchardt. He left school at a young age to help on the farm. Herman proudly served in the U.S. Army being deployed to Korea, where he defended our country in the Korean War and received The Purple Heart. He was a member of Zionsville Lutheran Church, American Legion Buddy Wright Post #48, V.F.W. James F. Dillon Post #7104, Sons of Herman Lodge #6 and Brenham Elks Lodge No. 979, where he served as Exalted Ruler.
