Herman Milton Disler, age 88, of Lake Mary, passed away peacefully at his home on Tuesday, Jan. 23, 2018, surrounded by his family and friends. One of four children, he was born on Feb. 18, 1929, in Chelsea, Massachusetts, to Myer and Mary Forman Disler, of blessed memory. An educator for many years, Herman served in the US Army, attaining the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the Reserves. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Providence College. On June 23, 1955, in Boston, he married the former Elaine Palman, his wife of over 62 years, who survives him.

Herman also leaves behind his devoted children—Michael (Dorothy) of Lake Mary, Richard of Ipswich, Mass., David (Robin) of Richmond, Va., Mark of Lake Mary, and Gregory (Carolyn) of Avondale, Penn. He was the very proud grandfather of Jennifer (Matthew), Kelly (Stephen), Matthew, Emily and Michelle; and great-grandfather of Bradley. He was predeceased by his siblings—Henry, Blanche and George.
