Michael M. Herman, 31, of Erie PA, died on the evening of July 30th, 2019 after a lifelong struggle with mental and emotional health. Michael, also known as “Mike” and “Tuesday” among friends and family, was born on June 6th, 1988 to parents Michael N. Herman (deceased) and Melissa L. Bishop (Briggs-Herman). He is survived by his loving mother Melissa and husband Joseph S. Bishop; sister Jenny; son Aiden; along with Aiden’s mother, Catherine Parlin. He will additionally be mourned by caring family and friends including grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Michael was a passionate individual who sought to understand life and the world more deeply. Having studied art at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, Michael also pursued diverse interests such as running, animal rights activism, vegan cooking, learning about Japanese culture and language, and enjoying literature and music. He was driven by challenging his potential and exploring ways to spread positive changes in the world. The family has decided to hold private services and no public viewing will take place. To honor Michael’s memory and to raise awareness and support for mental health, the family suggests expressions of sympathy be made in the form of donations to Project Semicolon (projectsemicolon.com) or directly to support his son Aiden. If you wish to donate for the latter, please send checks to Melissa Bishop at 1686 River Rd. Apt C, Warren, PA 16365.

I’m crushed to find out this happened. He was a really good guy, with a ton of talents, and an amazing heart. My prayers are with his family.

I just found out today from my son, Matthew Kostkas. He and Matt have been friends for many years. From Matt, he is so heart broken and said he will remember you akways. Tuesday saved Matthew's life once. This is a debt I cannot repay. I wish I was able to. Light and love sent to all of the family.

My condolences to the family and friends of Mike. I've known Mike for awhile from an online community for a game called Clash of Clans. I was saddened to learn of his passing from a mutual friend. I have gathered several photos he shared with us and compiled them to an album for viewing. I also linked a youtube video of him playing guitar. While I only ever got to meet him in person once he will always remain a brother.
