We offer our sincere condolences to Sarah and the Worsham family. Whenever Herbert came to Detroit to visit he would always get the gang (Dan, Bill, Fred, Kenny, and Bob) together for lunch at Nemos. It was a tradition they looked forward to.
Herbert will truly be missed.

Love and prayers

Sending my condolences, love, and prayers to my Aunt Sarah, Cousins Eleanor, Marci, and Serena ❤️ Uncle Herbert will truly be missed — He was wonderfully loving and always funny — If you didn’t have a smile when he greeted you — you would definitely have one when you parted ways. Uncle Herbert , my dad’s (Josephus Jr.) younger brother, always had my brothers and I laughing as he told us the life stories of growing up as a Worsham — Uncle Herbert was all about family and he made everyone feel like family whether you were blood related or not!! I only have good memories to cherish of my uncle — until we see each other again, take your rest Uncle Herbert — I Love You 💙
Your niece

Herbert was one of my favorite cousins! His unique sense of humor and infamous smile will always be cherished. I remember when I graduated from my high school, Herbert asked if I would be interested in relocating to Detroit to assist him in the lab. I have always respected his entrepreneurial spirit and vision. I love you Herbert and you will truly be missed🤎

Your cousin,
Adrienne
