George Herbert Dieckmann (Herb), age 89, of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, passed away on April 18, 2024. He was born on April 13, 1935, in Effingham, Illinois.  Herb graduated from Vandalia High School (Illinois) and furthered his education at Southern Illinois University.  He married Beverly Rank on April 1, 1957 In Morris, Illinois (when they eloped and surprised her Mom on her birthday).

Herb served in the military with the Army from February 1958 to January 1960.  He was stationed in Georgia and then Germany.  He then had a long career with National Cash Register in Sales and Service from 1960 to 1993.

Herb was a member of Peace Lutheran Church, where he served on church council and as an usher, as well as being part of Stephen Ministries.  He was a past member of the Utica Fire Department.

Herb was preceded in death by his father Herbert Egmont Dieckmann, step-mother Irene Dieckmann, mother Eunice Cleo Snerly, and his in-laws Raymond Sr. and Margaret Rank.

He enjoyed meeting people and genuinely cared about them, making many long term friends through community activities, hunting and fishing trips as well as Evergreen staff and friends.   To know him was to love him!

Herb proudly donated to a number of charitable organizations. In lieu of flowers if you are so inclined to honor him, please consider a donation to your favorite organizations.

 Many of his caregivers became dear friends to him. Special thanks to Dr. Karen Gremminger, Heather K. of Mercy, Bethany and Kami of Neuroscience and Heather and Cassie of Moments Hospice.
