Otto H. Herrmann III Gloucester - Otto H. “Sonny” Herrmann III, 55, of Gloucester, beloved husband of Kelley Hosmer, passed away suddenly, at home, on Friday, December 28, 2018. Sonny was born in Malden, on March 29, 1963, the son of Otto H. Herrmann Jr. and the late Edith (Gendreau) Pistenmaa. He had a comedic wit and a passion for music.

He is survived by his beloved wife Kelley, he was a devoted dad to his children, Romy, Maxx and Tres Herrmann and their mom Karen Herrmann, all of Gloucester, loving step-dad to Robert Hosmer of Dracut; his two sisters, Erikka Pistenmaa-Perkins of Nantucket, Rebecca Main of Gloucester; two brothers, Josh Herrmann of Acushnet, Shawn Herrmann of Holland Patent, NY and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
