He was raised on a farm northeast of Blue Earth where he farmed with his father. Following service in the Army near the end of WWII, he continued to farm throughout his life. Sherman particularly enjoyed the challenge of raising sugar beets. He was involved in the formation of the Southern Minnesota Sugar Beet Cooperative and served as one of its directors.Sherman participated in many church activities at St. Paul Lutheran Church. A rich part of his life was his involvement at Camp Emmaus, where he taught campers how to water ski using a boat, "the Ark", that he built from plans found in Popular Mechanics. The camp Staff became lifelong friends, and arranged an introduction to the new camp nurse, Shirley Pagh from Luck, WI. They were married on November 20, 1955 spending almost 60 years together before Shirley passed away in July 2015. Together, they raised four children; Joel, Daniel, Karen, and Linda.Sherm''s creative mind kept him-and his guardian angels-busy. He enjoyed big projects, so built tractors, designed sugar beet equipment, was a flying farmer, planted and harvested trees, made lumber at his sawmill, and was content when at the deer hunting cabin in Northern, MN. He built the log home he and Shirley lived in for 33+ years from red pine harvested from the Avenue of Pines near the hunting cabin.Sherm is survived by his children: Joel (Melanie) Humburg of Blue Earth, Daniel (Carol) Humburg of Brookings, SD, Karen (Mark) Reier of Stillwater, and Linda (Ken Tougaw) Humburg of Bayport; grandchildren, Ann (Josh) Crofton) of Blue Earth, Michael (Marissa) Humburg of Mapleton, Laura (Jay) Rollins of Pemberton, Jacob (Alyssa) Humburg of Eagan, Joshua Humburg of Millbank, SD, Brian Reier of Bayport and Kristine Reier of Stillwater; great grandchildren, Madelyn, Henry, Eli, Rose, Isaac, Peter, and Berit (born Nov. 4); 2 sisters, Norma Dornack and Iona (Ken) Mastin, as well as many family and friends.
