Herbert Maximillum Haymer


This biography is created in 'Loving Memory' of my father, Herbert (Herbie) M. Haymer. It is also dedicated to my wife Nancy, daughters, Cynthia and Lisa, son Bruce, Granddaughters Danielle, Brittany and Shellsea, Grandsons Charles Jr. and JJ and of course Great-Grandson Liam. My father was born on July the 24th, 1915 in Jersey City, New Jersey. It should be noted that his Surname was changed to Haymer when he 'signed' with an agent in 1932 to become a professional musician. The oldest son of William and Sophie Selchau Haymer, my father had two brothers (Bill and Ted) and a sister (Dorothy). In their younger years they grew up in Lyndhurst NJ and ultimately moved to Rutherford NJ in the late 1920's. At the age of fifteen, Herbie elected to take a music class at Rutherford High School and immediately took to the Alto Saxaphone
