Don Herrmann passed away on May 8, 2018, after a 14-month battle with brain cancer. He was the Deloitte Professor of Accounting at Oklahoma State University, where he had been on the faculty since 2005. Don won several teaching awards and enjoyed teaching financial accounting, intermediate accounting, and doctoral students. He received his bachelor’s degree in business from John Brown University, his master’s degree in accounting from Kansas State University, and his PhD in accounting from Oklahoma State University. He was active in the AAA and served as president of the International Accounting Section.
Don was best known for his warm and welcoming personality. He enjoyed serving in his local community and church, as well as hosting families and students in his home. His outgoing nature wasn’t the type that filled a room with his presence, but it was the type that filled a one-on-one conversation with purpose.
Above all else, family was first to Don. Some of his favorite family activities included camping, going to amusement parks, and coaching little league sports. He is survived by his wonderful wife Mary and four amazing children Rachel, David, Nathan, and Micah. As he battled through the different stages of cancer, he often reflected on his family. He was so proud of them and talked about them with a humble thankfulness.
Those who knew Don were fortunate to share their lives with him. He lived with a sense of purpose and a solid foundation. That foundation continues through his family and the people he’s touched. He will be missed by many.
