Herb Schaper, 87, of New Ulm, died Wednesday, August 7, 2019, at Oak Hills Living Center in New Ulm. Funeral services were held Tuesday, August 13, at St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran church in New Ulm.
Herb had a love of the New Ulm community that inspired a lifelong passion to serve. This driving energy produced a history of community service found in baseball, the church, military, community projects, and so much more. Herb was involved in amateur baseball in Minnesota for may years and started gathering much history now found in state amateur tournament books while he was sports editor at the New Ulm Journal. He was the founder, owner, CEO of Master Graphics of Minnesota until the time of his retirement in 1994.
