I knew Herb as a Mother of a teenage son who thoroughly enjoyed his teenage years in the Youth Group of the Cedar Grove Community Church. We enjoyed Herb’s sermons and the plays that he directed and performed in. Herb had an infectious smile that I loved seeing.

When my Mother died in 2001 and my Father died in 2006, I asked Herb to officiate at their funerals. Herb was very willingy to travel from Livermore to Woodlad, CA to do this for me, even though he never knew my parents. I am forever grateful for that.

As someone else has mentioned, I also remember the Poem he told of the Dash on tombstones between the Dates of Birth and the Dates of Death. I am just sure that “Herb’s Dash” is full of accomplishments and The Lord is smiling upon him now, saying Thank You, Good and Faithful Servant.

Pastor Herb was a wonderful, patient, caring man to myself and my children. He was always willing to talk with me and listen when I needed it as a teenager and a young adult, with many family and life issues I needed wisdom for. He got to dedicate all three of my children at Cedar Grove which I will forever remember. He came to visit while we lived in Virginia and brought Peyton a small giraffe, she named him Herbie after him and carried him everywhere for over a year. We just realized that about a bag of her stuffed animals went missing a few months ago and Herbie and her favorite bunny are gone, she was saddened but I told her all of the memories she has with them is what counts, she said she’s praying for Herb to be with His Savior. Herb will always be in our memories and our hearts until we meet him again one day. Prayers to all of his family, we will be thinking of you all as you trek through the hardest parts of this journey, just remember He is with you and Herb is with Him now. Hugs.

Dear Pedigo Family,
Thank you for the beautiful tribute to Herb's life of ministry. He was truly a blessing all his life.
Thank you, too, for the photo gallery. How those photos take me back to so many happy times, as well as catch me up on the many years that have passed since I last saw Cheryl and Herb!
My heart goes out to all of you as you grieve this incredible loss. My prayers are with you this coming week as you celebrate his life, and in the weeks ahead as you live without his daily presence.

Many years ago Herb shared a poem titled "The Dash" in a sermon that really stuck with me. "The Dash" is about a person sharing at a funeral for a friend. This friend referred to the beginning and end dates on his friends tombstone, but also noted the all important Dash in the middle, the Dash signifying the persons life and what they chose to do with it.
My friend Herb's Dash was a good one. He was not overly concerned with material things but loved his family and his friends dearly. He always slowed down enough to consider what is true and real, all the while constantly sharing about his friend Jesus who he is with now. He knew full well that this special "Dash" might only last a little while.

Herb had a magical touch with special needs students. He would read Robert Frost to a non verbal student who was never calm or still. When Herb would read the student was calm, would smile and look at Herb. It was a beautiful thing to watch. 💗

Herb was simply a great guy. He led our Monday night men’s group and over the years Mondays were always something to look forward to for me. He was a spiritual leader, a confidant, a source of awesome dad jokes, and a great friend. I miss him dearly but know that he is having a great time in heaven right now smiling down on all of us. Love and miss you Herb!

One of my fondest memories is spending July 4th with Herb and the rest of his family and friends. From day one, Herb made us feel like family. He had a way of making everyone, not just my family, feel welcomed. Herb will forever be remembered as one of the kindest most loving people I have ever met and I am blessed to have known him and call him a friend.

Attended college with Herb. Our sympathy to the family, and "we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God."



Dad didn’t want an obituary listing all of the the details of his life, but we find ourselves wanting to remember who he was to us, and to so many other people. So, we’ve compromised, and will call this a biography, rather than an obituary – we don’t think he’ll mind.

Herb was a son to Fred and Alberta Pedigo; brother to Shirley Johnson; husband to Cheryl; Father to Chris, Lisa, Jodi and Matt; Father-in-Law to Eric, Mike and Amanda; and Grandpa to Jake, Tyler, Andy, Mayah, Zac, Adam and Josh.

He was a Speech Professor at Marathana College, a Pastor at Cedar Grove Community Church and a Teacher’s Aide for special needs kids at Placer County Office of Education. He knew American Sign Language, loved the Giants, and sang with all his heart during worship. He told jokes, a lot of jokes - some were great, others were not. But he loved life, and he lived his with an undying joy that came from his faith in Jesus.

Dad started the King’s Players at Cedar Grove to spread the word of God through drama – a passion of his. With the support of actors, lighting experts, set builders and many others, he directed plays at Cedar Grove for many years. The church plays were a family affair, with most of us participating in at least one. Mom made the costumes and we saw them work together, showing us the picture of true partnership in marriage.

We had the pleasure of being raised by a father who demonstrated God’s love to us throughout our childhood, and into our adult lives as well. He allowed each of us to be who we are, guiding us, loving us and always cheering us on. He was a staple at our sports games, and not only cheered loudly for us, but made sure he knew the names of our teammates, so he could cheer for them as well. This continued with his grandchildren – at sporting events, at piano recitals, at school plays and rites of passage.

Even at the end of his life, Dad was faithful in his walk with the Lord. He led a small group bible study on Tuesday nights and a Monday night Men’s small group through Bayside Church. Many of those he met at his small groups continued their visits even while he was in the hospital. He was a favorite in the oncology department, always remembering his nurses’ names, telling jokes, and putting people at ease. He opened his home and heart to any who needed either.

His life verse, Philippians 3:14 says “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Even as we grieve his loss here on earth, we find joy and peace knowing that he finished his race strong, and he is forevermore in the presence of his Father in heaven.
