Denny Herr

November 5, 1953 ~ September 19, 2018 (age 64)


Denny Herr, 64 years of age, passed away Wednesday September 19, 2018.  Denny was born in Ravenna, Ohio on November 5, 1953, and had been a longtime Mantua resident where he graduated from Crestwood Schools in 1972. Denny was the owner-operator of Denny Herr Well Drilling since 1972, working alongside with his son Lonnie who continues to operate the family business. Denny loved fishing, snowmobiling, and spending time in Canada. His passion for collecting electric trains was shared with the boys in their younger years, as well as with his granddaughter Kodie as she learned to operate the controls with her grandfather. For those who really knew Denny, his love for family and animals will never be forgotten. On February 12, 1983, he married his beloved wife Kathy (Smosarski) Herr who survives at their home. He is also survived by his devoted sons Lonnie (Christina) Herr of Shalersville and Todd Herr of Mantua, and his loving granddaughter Kodie Herr. No calling hours. A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday September 29, 2018 from 2:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. at the Mantua K.of C. (Sentinel Hall) 11845 St. Rt. 44, Mantua, Ohio 44255. Cremation has been held with a private final resting place. Denny would have appreciated in lieu of flowers to please make a donation to the Portage County APL.
