The best Dental Technician in Caldwell County, Charles Herman Bishop, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Feb. 9, 2021, at 12:30 a.m. He fought a strong battle of Sarcoma Stomach Cancer.
Mr. Bishop was born in Buncombe County, Asheville, to Arthur and Mabel Bishop. He is survived by two sisters, one brother, four daughters, four grandchildren, four great-grandchildren and his girlfriend of nine years.
Herman Bishop was a great man and a very strong, intelligent, and caring person. He was always there to assist or lend a hand for his family, friends, or even a stranger, and he loved spending time with family. He worked over 60 years in the dental field, loved his occupation, and he was known as the Tooth Fairy. Herman also loved watching sports, playing horseshoes, going to the local flea markets, shooting matches, fishing or hunting and loved to travel and experience life to the fullest. He has been an inspiration to anyone who knew him. He spent many Wednesday mornings at Hardee’s in Lenoir playing his mandolin along with several other band members. Herman loved to tell jokes just to make someone laugh. What a beautiful soul he had. He was of Baptist Faith and will be forever missed but never forgotten. Until we see you again in those Golden Gates of Heaven, we love you!
