Obituary

George Allen Hergott, 90, husband of Patricia A. (Malone) Hergott for 64 years, departed on Saturday, November 7, 2020. He was born on April 30, 1930 in Hartford, CT but was a resident of Meriden from the age of three. He was the son of George L. and Matilda (Myers) Hergott.

He attended local schools and graduated from Meriden High School, Class of 1948 where a musical career as a trumpet player almost started. He was a soloist with MHS band, a member of the All-New England High School Orchestra, a charter member of Meriden Symphony Orchestra, a member of the Meriden City Band, plus several dance and ethnic bands.

He attended college at Tufts College in Medford, MA and earned his BS in Bio-Chem in 1952. He graduated from Dental School at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA and received his DDS in 1956.

He was a proud veteran, having served his country in the U.S. Navy, working as a dental officer at Bainbridge Naval Training Center in Maryland. From 1956 to 1957 he served aboard USS Tanner (AGS-15), mostly in the Mediterranean Sea. Dr. Hergott worked at the home port of Brooklyn Navy Yard from 1957 to 1958. In July of 2001, Dr. Hergott joined the Antique Veterans of Meriden and considered it a distinct priviledge to play “Taps” and any appropriate military music at their many military funerals, civic holidays and scholastic or institutional events.

He returned to Meriden as a staff member of the Meriden Health Department and had a brief association on the dental staff of Waterbury Hospital. Allen was a dental staff member at Undercliff Hospital and eventually established his general dental practice in 1959 at 213 East Main St. in Meriden which eventually became Hergott Dental Associates.

Dr. Hergott retired from active practice as a result of a cerebral stroke in 2002, leaving his son and Associate of the previous seven years as the sole practitioner at the time. Dr. G. Allen was a member of the CT State Dental Association and a past President of the Meriden-Wallingford-Cheshire Dental Association. He was also a past President and Paul Harris Fellow of the Meriden Rotary Club, where he was active in the foreign student exchange program.

Through the years, family vacations involved outdoor activities, hosting exchange students, boating, hiking, camping, white water canoeing, scuba diving, fishing, dining out and other activities.

The very close family includes son and colleague, Dr. David K. Hergott with his children Hayley and Daniel; Elizabeth and Michael F. Devine, their family of Megan and husband Grant Kessler, Michael P. and Matthew; Cathleen Woodworth with daughter Chelsea and son Alex; Paul and Robin Hergott, with son Christopher and daughter Jillian; daughter Suzanne and William Velez with son Luke and daughters Emma and Grace; and son Patrick T. Hergott and wife Sandra with a daughter Olivia and a son Charles.

The family would like to give a special thanks to the staff of the Village at Kensington Place and the Franciscan Home and Hospice Care for their dedicated care of “Doc.”

Family and friends are invited to attend a graveside service, with military honors by the Antique Veterans of Meriden, to be held on Thursday, November 12th at 11 a.m. at Sacred Heart Cemetery, 250 Gypsy Lane, Meriden. Everyone is asked to meet directly at the cemetery. Family and friends may pay their respects at the John J. Ferry & Sons Funeral Home, 88 East Main St., Meriden, on Wednesday, November 11th (Veterans’ Day) from 4 to 6 p.m. Due to the current pandemic, masks and social distancing are required. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Antique Veterans of Meriden through the Muravnick Senior Center, 22-26 W. Main St., Meriden, CT 06451.

To the entire Hergott family but most especially Dave and family, we are so sorry to hear of Dr. George's death. My he rest in peace and may you find comfort and peace in fond memories.. Our family members have been patients of Hergott Dental for over 50 years. We not only love the excellent dental care but the personalized approach to care over the years. Mell remembers assisting Doc to pull out her wisdom teeth by helping to pull on his arms as he worked to get a three root one out! Doc always was fun and had a special twinkle in his eye! He made a difference in so many lives. He will be missed! God bless you all! Mother Mary Hobson, Mell, Kathy, Dave , and John

Pat and the rest of the Hergott family, please accept Ann’s and my sincerest condolences. This year I turned 65. Al Hergott has been in my life for almost 60 of those. He was one of my father’s closest friends and that led to a bond between our families that has endured to this day. That bond is cemented by a path leading from Arlington Street North to Middle Beach in Westbrook. From Winthrop Terrace to the Point Cabin at Deer Lake with sour dough pancakes on the griddle before a Sunday morning walk around the lake. Blue fishing and canoeing the water release on the Housatonic. Rotary, exchange students and cutting firewood. And these are just some of the memories. Later, in adult life, even after our parents had passed, and we had moved away from Meriden, visiting Al, catching up on Meriden and family news and exchanging recently read books about history and the sea was something I looked forward to. He anchored my memories of that path through childhood and reminded me each time we met of why this is “The Greatest Generation”. The world is a lesser place without Al Hergott in it and we will miss you. Al, rest in peace.

Dear Pat and family: Our deepest sympathy to you and your loving family upon Allen’s passing. I have such wonderful memories of him, from my 1st dental appointment with him to our conversations of daily life. Allen was a wonderful person, his smile and laugh, dedication and care of his patients, are what will be remembered. May comments such as these of our memories give you comfort to realize what a special person Allen was and so fortunate to have been part of his life. Carol and Jim Neckermann, Berlin, CT

To the Entire Hergott Family,
My deepest condolences got out to your extended family. The special memories of Dr. Hergott will last a lifetime. My dad continues to share stories of the times you spent together. The family times we spent together in NH were so special for all of us. Dr. Hergott's humor and ability to put a smile on everyone's face was second to none. That is what I will remember most. RIP "Uncle Al".
