Herman Mechle

HERMAN MECHLE age 92, beloved husband for 62 years of Frances “Fani”  (nee Kastelic); loving father of Marilynn Kravchuck (husband Gregory) and Herman (wife Jennifer); devoted grandfather of Mack, Jake and Zeke Mechle and Makenna Kravchuck; cherished son of the late Joze and Franciska (nee Kocevar); dearest brother of the late Joze (wife Fanika, deceased), Tone (wife Mileni, deceased), Ana Slapar (husband Janez) and Ema Hocevar (husband Vinko, deceased); dear brother in law of Ana Zabukovec (husband Janez, deceased) and the late Frank Kastelic (wife Marija), Nada Kastelic, Tone Kastelic (wife Zalka) and Marija Kastelic; dear uncle and great-uncle of many.

Herman was born on April 11, 1931, in Videm Dobrepolje, Slovenia and came to the United States in 1955, where he resided in Euclid before moving to Willoughby Hills eighteen years ago. Herman has been a faithful member of St. Noel’s since 1986. He attended high school in Slovenia and was an exceptional tailor and owned his own business. Herman enjoyed gardening, playing cards, listening and dancing to polka and doing work around the house. He mostly loved spending time with his family. Many would say Herman was a private person but was also social, yet quiet, reserved, and soft-spoken with a kind heart and a great sense of humor. Herman was devoted to his family and his faith. Herman passed away on September 22, 2023. He will be greatly missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing and loving him.
