William Herman

We are saddened to announce the death of long-time Auburn Town Administrator Bill Herman. Bill had been battling cancer for a few years and recently had to take a leave of absence. For over 15 years Auburn was Bill’s home away from home. Even though   never being a citizen of Auburn, he loved our town and his job, this town became a large part of his life.

Bill spent countless hours supporting the Board of Selectmen, town departments, employees and committees. He consistently went above and beyond sitting in meetings he was not required to attend or attending town events to show his support to the community.  Bill could be found eating pie at the Auburn Historical Duck Race, helping at the town E-waste Day or just taking in the events at Old Home Day.

It's impossible to put what Bill meant to Auburn in a few paragraphs, we will forever remember his positive impact on the Town of Auburn and will often recall the lessons learned through his guidance and advice. While we need to move forward as a town, Bill’s legacy will last all our lifetimes. We will forever be grateful.

The Board of Selectmen, along with the entire Auburn staff and volunteers, extend our sincere and heartfelt condolences to Bill’s family and express our deep appreciation for all his years of service to the Town of Auburn.
