Herman L. Monico

Herman L. Monico

December 27, 1938 – January 16, 2022

Herman was born on December 27, 1938, as the first child of Matilda and Herman Monico and five years later, the older brother of Joseph. Herman served in the Coast Guard. He married his life-long love, Linae Laugel on October 18, 1958. Together they had two children, Matthew and Michele. He had one beloved grandchild, Bradley.

Herman lived in Omaha his entire life. He had a long successful working career in both wholesale and retail sales. He loved his home of 59 years. His yard and flowers were his passion. He was the proud owner of a 1958 Cadillac having always been a lover of old cars. He was an avid toy collector with a special room in his house just for his toys. Herman was part of a bowling league for a short time and accompanied his wife, Linae, to many of her sorority functions, but devoted the majority of his time to raising and caring for his family.

Herman was a loyal, hard-working, caring, loving, giving and gentle man. Everyone loved meeting and knowing Herman. Even if he did not know you well, or even at all, he greeted everyone with a smile and kind words.

Herman is preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Linae Monico; brother, Joseph A. Monico and many dear brothers and sisters-in-law. Herman is survived by his children, Matthew (Shawn Perez) Monico, Michele (Tom) McKeone; grandchild, Bradley J. Monico. He is also survived by brothers and sisters-in-law, Kathleen (Richard) Traynor, Sam Nastase and Jane Laughlin.

    I worked with Herman at Borsheims years ago. He worked in receivables and was very methodical and good at his job. He was the sweetest man. A few of us used to call him Hermie. Everyone loved him. His photo shows how sweet he is. May love guide you and peace and comfort wash over you. I am so sorry for your loss.
