Obituary for Dr. Donald "Don" Richard Herrmann

Dr. Don Herrmann, 54, was welcomed into heaven by his Savior on May 8th 2018 after a 14-month battle with brain cancer.

Dr. Don was born on October 21, 1963 to Richard and Doris Herrmann in Lincoln, Nebraska. After graduating from Lincoln Northeast High School, Don attended Emmaus Bible College in Chicago. He went on to John Brown University where he played tennis and met and married Mary Mugler. Don received his master’s degree in accounting from Kansas State University in 1987, worked as an auditor for Deloitte in Colorado, then moved to Stillwater where he earned his PhD in accounting from OSU in 1995. He spent nine years at Oregon State University, where he and his family enjoyed camping in the Cascades and at the beach nearby. Don accepted a faculty position at Oklahoma State University in 2005. In addition to his research, teaching, and textbook authorship, he served in various roles, including department head and PhD coordinator. Don and his family have spent the past 13 years in Stillwater where he was active in the community and loved hosting families and students. He served as an elder at Countryside Church, led numerous Bible studies, and coached many youth sports teams. Don lived his life without fear, knowing that he was saved by grace through his faith in Jesus. His life verse was Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Don is survived by his wife, Mary; children, David and Rachel Cox, David and Sarah Herrmann, Nathan Herrmann, and Micah Herrmann; a grandson due in July; brother, Doug Herrmann; and father, Richard Herrmann.
