Herman George Nuhn
Herman George Nuhn aged 97 years of Moose Jaw, SK, passed away on Sunday, April 2nd, 2023. Son of Frederick Nuhn and Emma (Maes), Herman was born June 5th, 1925 and grew up with his 5 brothers and sisters: Henry, Walter, Thelma, Mildred and Ruth, on the family farm in Ayton, Ontario. An avid baseball player in his youth, he joined the RCAF in 1952 after the passing of his father and served with great pride and joy – his lifelong love of aircraft and of serving in the Canadian Air Force was a defining era of his life. It was through the RCAF that Herman met Audoreen Bourne in North Bay, Ontario, fell in love immediately, and were each other’s partners in life continuously for 66 years until his passing. When Audie needed the care of Providence Place in Moose Jaw, he visited her daily for several years until he was able to join her there 4 months before his passing. Herman is survived by his wife, Audoreen (née: Bourne); their 3 children: Karen, Darla Mayer (John), and Derek; 6 grandchildren: Jared, Joel, Jordan, Brett, Krista, and Tania; and great-grandson, Oliver.
Herman travelled the world and, in his retirement, enjoyed regular trips to visit family in Ontario and Manitoba, and attend his beloved Blue Jays games. He loved music, working on his cars, house and garden, and was an avid collector of old and vintage clocks.
The Funeral Service will be held on Friday, April 14th, 2023 at 1:00 p.m. in Moose Jaw Funeral Home. Pastor Marvin Seaborg will officiate and interment will take place at the Moose Jaw Funeral Home Columbarium at a later date.

Sorry to hear the passing of Uncle Herman. He always took the time to pop in and see us when they came back to Ontario to see the plowing match. Our deepest sympathy from Jim and Joyce, Jamie & family, Jodie and family, Joshua & family.
So loved . . .
Dear Audi & Family,
We are so sorry to hear about Herman. He was a wonderful man and always loved to talk and greeted you with a smile. I remember the time when you both gave me (Elizabeth) a surprise visit when I lived at Elgin Abbey Nursing Home in Chesley when you were travelling through visiting family. You are in our thoughts and prayers through this difficult time. Our sincere sympathy from Elizabeth Seip & Family.
Uncle Herm was always fun with a great sense of humour!! I reminded Darla of the time we were in Rivers for Easter and he and Dad made bunny footprints in your back yard and left chewed carrots. For a brief moment, the magic was still there.
There are so many great memories over the years, some faded and some still vivid. Lisa especially loved taking Gramma to visit you. She still tries to out do Uncle Herm’s contagious “snort”.
I’m so happy that you were able to be together the last few months, as it should be. I’m sure Uncle Herm is kicking up his heels with Mom and Dad and the rest of his kith and kin!!
Much love to you all.
To Audie and family,
Sorry to hear of Herman’s passing. We enjoyed talking with him at The Bentley when we visited our parents(Rudeens) there. He was a valuable member of Central Country Gospel group at church, as well. Our sympathies to the family.
Don & Gwen (Rudeen) Peterson
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of sorrow.
