Herman Walter Abeloe Jr., 87, of Santa Maria, Ca. passed away on Dec. 15, 2017. He was born in Santa Maria in 1930. He graduated from Santa Maria high school and joined the Navy. He served aboard the U.S.S. Hale and made the transition from the Pacific fleet to the Atlantic fleet via the Panama Canal. When he returned from the Navy he was employed by the oil refinery on the Nipomo Mesa. He worked there for 37 years. He retired as an operations foreman.
Herman loved to fish and travel. He owned a boat pretty much his entire adult life. He fished many lakes but loved to spend two to three weeks twice a year at Tahoe Lake. He also loved fishing the local Pacific Ocean waters frequently. Herman loved to travel with his truck, camper, and utility trailer in tow. He and Young traveled into Canada and as far east as Nova Scotia, then down the eastern sea board and returning across the southern states.
Herman is survived by his wife Young Soon Abeloe. He is also survived by his sons Robert, Tony, and Ron, his brother Donald and his cousins Jimmy and Carl along with numerous grand and great grandchildren. He was loved and respected by all.
