Herman Loving Pentecost was born on November 8, 1959 in Virginia to Melvin and Barbara Pentecost. A middle child with six siblings: Melvin, Debbie, Carol, Robert, Richie, and Samuel.
Herman began working at a young age turning wrenches with his father.
He eventually moved to Port Lavaca, TX where he was introduced to the love of his life, Elizabeth. When Elizabeth asked what he did for a living, Herman answered, “I am an unemployed bum”.
This obviously swept her off her feet and Herman and Elizabeth got married on a whim in jeans and t-shirts in 1982.
Their first son, Jeremy, was born in 1983 in Texas.
Herman’s job brought him to Savannah in 1986. This is where he and Elizabeth decided would be their forever home.
Their second son, Jason, was born in Savannah in 1987.
Herman took so much pride in his children and often times would assist in coaching their little league teams. He spent many weekends on Tybee Island with his sons fishing and passed that love of fishing on.
He always had a smile on his face and did his best to improve everyone’s day. No one was safe from his antics and his goal was to make everyone smile.
The biggest smile crossed his face when he became a grandfather or as he like to be called, Pa.
Herman worked in industrial construction for the majority of his adult life and was set to retire from the Local 188 later this month.
He entered his eternal rest on July 2, 2023 after he battled cancer.
He is preceded in death by his son, Jeremy Pentecost; and his mother and father, Melvin and Barbara.
He is survived by his wife of 41 years, Elizabeth Pentecost; son, Jason (Alyssa) Pentecost; siblings, Melvin Pentecost, Debbie (Rick) Houghland, Carol Ramsey, Robert Pentecost, Ritchie Pentecost, Samuel Pentecost; and his grandchildren, Gabriella Pentecost, Jason Pentecost, Jr., and Lennox Pentecost.
A memorial service and celebration of Herman’s life will be held at New Hope Christian Church (2550 Courthouse Rd Guyton, GA 31312) on July 15, 2023 at 4:00PM. Please wear your most comfortable jeans and casual clothing as Herman only wore a suit maybe twice in his life and wouldn’t want it any differently.Print This Obituary & Condolences
