Hermiston's Mayor passes away after heart attack

CITY OF HERMISTON STATEMENT -- The officials and employees of the City of Hermiston wish to express our deepest sadness at the passing of our Mayor, Bob Severson.

"Mayor Bob" has been an active supporter and proponent for Hermiston for many decades. To many he will always be remembered as the owner of "Bob's Red Apple" market.

He worked hard for the betterment of our City as Councilor and Mayor for almost two decades.
At this time our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Jan, and their family.

We will miss him.
