Celebrating the life of Herman Penland

A celebration of Life
Herman Penland, March 13, 1932 Ė January 18, 2013

Herman Penland was born in Des Moines, Iowa USA to Eva and Robert Penland. He had two brothers. Hermís adventurous spirit took him to California at the age of 16 where he joined the Navy and later met his wonderful wife Linda in college in 1958. They married in 1962.

In 1972 Herman moved the family to Karachi, Pakistan and that began their international life. After five years in Pakistan, the family moved to La Paz, Bolivia where he was the director of The American School for twenty years. After visiting Ambergris Caye for the first time in 1995, they fell in love with the island, purchased their first piece of property and immediately made plans to retire here. Two weeks into retirement in a hammock, Herman decided it was time to find a hobby on the island. He still felt he had more to accomplish in life and decided to purchase Southwind Properties. From real estate sales, Hermanís interest grew into development and he started working on plans for Belizean Shores Resort. In 2000 his son Doug moved to Belize to help Herman carry out his vision and dreams. After the success of Belizean Shores, Herman and Doug moved onto developing Belizean Cove Estates and Coco Beach Resort. Even at the age of 80 Herman was actively involved in planning the development of their current project, Venezia Del Caribe.

Family was the first priority in Hermanís life. Herman is survived by his wife Linda Penland, his five children, Marcee, Pamela, Doug, Christi, and Katalina and three grandchildren Jake, Cole, and Jonathon.

The San Pedro Sun extends sincerest condolences to the Penland family. Mr. Herman has touched the lives of so very many people; his utter kindness and love for the people of La Isla Bonita is remembered through the many stories from those whose lives he has touched, and changed for the better. May Mr. Penland rest in peace.

Mr. Penland was instrumental in my first year of 6th form; there was a fund to pay for students' education, and I was one of the lucky ones. He was so kind when I walked into his office, and very proud of my grades. Thank you Mr. Herman Penland, for your kind contribution to making me the person I am today. I will strive to make you proud, always.
