Tributes for

Rassp, Herman

Herman Rassp, 88, was an adoring husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. Herman was born in Havana, Cuba on November 13, 1928. His father Julius was from Romania and his mother Anna was from Austria. Herman arrived in the United States in 1944 and settled in Los Angeles. He graduated from Polytechnic High School and got his first job at E. F. Hutton & Company as a board marker. After graduation from high school, Herman enlisted in the National Guard whereupon his unit was activated into the U.S. Army in 1949. Herman was a supply sergeant and served active duty from August 22, 1950 through February 12, 1952. It is ironic that Herman's passing occurred on Veteran's Day, two days before his 89th birthday. Herman met the love of his life, Beverly Ann Kay, at a family party in 1949. Upon his discharge from the Army, Herman and Beverly got married on June 15, 1952. They were happily married for over 65 years and remained best friends throughout their lives. Herman continued working for E. F. Hutton & Company until 1953 when he took over his father's business as an investment manager. He managed his extended family's stock and real estate portfolios and in February 1973 Herman became licensed as a real estate broker, with his office located in the Media District in the City of Burbank. He represented buyers and sellers of real estate and continued managing his extended family's investment portfolios. He had the utmost honesty and integrity in his business dealings. Herman was an avid reader of newspapers, magazines, and always had a keen interest in geology including oil and gas production. He was a die-hard Dodgers fan and attended the 1988 World Series game when Kirk Gibson hit the game-winning home run. Herman and Beverly raised their two sons, Greg I. Rassp (Denise Rassp) and Robert G. Rassp, Esq. (Michelle A. Rassp) in the City of Burbank. Herman has four grandchildren, Kimberly Marchbank (Jerry Marchbank IV), Allison Rassp, Jessica Rassp, and Daniel Rassp. Herman also has three great-grandchildren, Jared Marchbank V, Connor Marchbank, and Bryce Marchbank. Herman also has step-grandchildren Jodi and Ronnie Klaver, Ryan and Danya Sher, Elan Sher; and four step-great-grandchildren Nina and Ian Klaver; and Jayden and Ora Sher. Herman can best be described as a kind-hearted, gentle and smart man. He was the best husband and father anyone could possibly have and everyone will miss him.
