Returning home Hershel dedicated his life to serving God. He ministered at many churches getting involved in the communities and helping anyway he could. A selfless man, a strong man ~ full of compassion and faith. Hershel always pushed forward form earning certificates to graduating with a Masters in Religious Education and becoming the Dean of World Institute Of Religious Education. Hershel was also a very adventurous man. Through the years he enjoyed scuba diving, hunting and horse training.
