Dear Dave and heart goes out to you ..the loss of a father is like no other. I will always remember Herbie as young and strong ..handsome and charming..remembering so well when he was developing the Beekman Country Club property...that smile that lit up whatever part of the world he was gracing at that moment!

There was a character. And he taught his boys well him. May God bless him.
I'm sure he has already reserved a few acres in heaven for future development
