Herman H. Zschille Jr., 86, of Jackson passed away Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014, at Saint Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau.
He was born April 22, 1927, in Jackson, son of Herman H. and Regina Kurre Zschille Sr. He and Joyce Page were married Feb. 10, 1948.
Herman was a lifelong member of Emanuel United Church of Christ in Jackson. He loved his family and dedicated his life to them. He avidly followed Jackson sports, especially football and basketball, attending all home games. He enjoyed watching his grandson, Jeremy, wrestle from first grade through high school. Tractor rides were always a source of enjoyment for his great-grandkids, but it was never decided who had more fun, the kids or Pop!

He was preceded in death by his parents, a sister and a granddaughter, Stacey.
