Herman Kennard, 1915–2007

Herman Kennard passed away March 8, 2007, at the age of 91. Herman was born July 14, 1915, in Arcadia, Oklahoma and resided in Oklahoma City. He was a long-time ApHC member and the breeder and only owner of the great stallion Alias King, who produced 319 registered foals. Sixty-three of those foals earned 1,951.6 performance points, 69 earned 962.5 halter points, 45 foals earned 87 registers of merit, and collectively they earned 13 bronze medallions and three superior achievement certificates among many other awards and achievements. Herman bred 224 registered Appaloosas.

He was also recognized for more than 50 years in the grocery business and as the owner of Kennard Discount Foods.

Despite his notable accomplishments, nothing made Herman prouder than being the patriarch of a large family. He loved holidays and family gatherings. He was never happier than with a house full of children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Three children, 11 grandchildren and seventeen great-grandchildren survive Herman.
