Stephen Francis Hermans
M, b. March 29, 1950, d. June 19, 2004
- Birth: Stephen Francis Hermans was born on March 29, 1950 in Green Bay, Brown Co, Wisconsin.
- Death: He died on June 19, 2004, at age 54.
- Note: STEPHEN FRANCIS HERMANS, age 54, died June 19, 2004, while vacationing in Wisconsin. He was born March 29, 1950 in Green Bay, WI.
Occupation: Video Director for the Detroit Lions for over 25 years.
Mr. Hermans has “kept his eye” on the Detroit Lions for over 25 years. He oversaw a wide ranging and ever-expanding list of video responsibilities for the coaching staff and player personnel department, as well as any other video needs the organization threw his way. He oversaw a major change during the 2000 season in the way the Lions processed, evaluated and distributed practice and game videotapes. The process is now almost entirely digital using the PINNALE system with compatible computers and monitors, enabling coaches, players and front office personnel the ability to splice, view and monitor the same footage using "v-mail" off each individual monitor. The new process parallels Hermans' spearheading of the Lions' effort in 1986 when the NFL switched from an all-film operation to videotape.
Mr. Hermans was Assistant Photo Director at WBAY-TV in his native Green Bay, Wisconsin, from 1968-77 prior to his joining the Lions. His contact with football began at WBAY when he processed, edited and printed game films for the Packers.
Beloved husband of Rosann.
Dear father of Craig (Juanita), Chad and Keith.
Dearest son of Francis and Geri.
Brother of Dennis (Pam), Mark, Peggy, Greg (Karol) and Mary Aldrich (Kurt).
Family will receive friends at St. Hugo of the Hills Church, 2215 Opdyke Road, Bloomfield Hills, Thursday, June 24, 2004 at 9 AM until Funeral Mass at 11 AM.
