He then returned home to Virginia where he lived out the last 8 years of his life.

Also while in Italy he was the proprietor of an import/export business. He was not afraid of hard work. He had an uncanning love for pets collecting all kinds of mammals, reptiles and birds, trying to train and play with anything that moved.

Sending our heartfelt condolences from Donnell Riddick family in Las Vegas Nevada. I am so sorry for our great lost. We will truly miss Herman\'s handwork, texts, phone calls, jokes and smiles. I am just so lost for words, but not memories. I thank God for allowing my family to spent time with my brother in-law Herman, when we were last visiting in Virginia. Herman will be truly missed by us all. We will not forget him; nor his legacy he left behind. Rest In Peace Much Love from the Riddick\'s family
