Notes from High School Classmates.. W. H. Adamson, Class of '64
So sad, he will be missed. Nancy Frampton
He was a great person and helped our committee with his heart. Jackie Johnson Hubbard
Oh, I am so sad to read about Herbie. What a great guy. He was so special, and he will be missed a lot by many friends. Another leopard gone too soon. Sharon Baker Suarez
What does one say at times like this? He was one of my lunch buddies at school. Fond memories of a great smile.

Oh Jean, I only saw this note a couple of minutes ago and I am truly feeling a great loss. If only we could have helped him, help that I am not sure he wanted. I sometimes wonder if the loss of his wife was too much, plus his own health issues could not get resolved. There are no words, I just need to cry.
I am so sorry to hear of another Leopard Loss!! Hugs to all. Denica Duncan
Thanks for the news but I’m sad to receive it.
Blessings, Jeanie Rickets Stanley
So sorry to hear about Herbie. I always enjoyed visiting with him at our class reunions. We went to church together in the 50’s. His mother was a beautiful red headed lady. I remember when his younger brother, Johnny, died of cancer when he was about 12 Herbie was devastated. So sad. Roger Massey

Herbie was a dear friend and great part of our Adamson High School, Class of 1964. Always there to help the Reunion Committee with whatever was needed, smiling, cheerful and ready to dance.
We kept up through the years until the end came much too soon.
Love you, Herbie,

My dear friend Herbie and I go back to first grade at Jeff Davis all the way through Adamson, and I always felt like our friendship was special and close. I think anyone who really knew him probably felt the same way because of his big heart and friendly soul. He always seemed upbeat and genuinely enjoyed your companionship and was a joy to be around. I admire the way he lived his life and loved family, friends and life in general. The world was a better place with him in it and heaven now is too. Godspeed my man and I hope to see you on the other side to see that great smile again!

I will remember Herbie as one tough guy with a consistently great disposition! I played football with Herbie at Greiner Jr. High and enjoyed watching him play at Adamson. When I talked to him at one of our last reunions, it was like I was talking to him in high school....same old Herbie. I am sad for the family that Herbie has left us, but I am sure he is in a pickup football game in heaven right now, probably on the same team with John Bullock, Allen Williams and Tony Gorman! Pat Coughlin is probably their cheerleader! Rest in peace, my friend, Herbie Prewitt! Norman Grey #21

I was a classmate at Jeff Davis, Greiner and Adamson with Herb and always considered him a friend and a really great guy! I thought it was great that he chose to be a Dallas Firefighter and paramedic as my Dad was also a Dallas Firefighters until he retired in the 80's and it is a very noble profession! Doug and I always enjoyed visiting and sharing stories with him at our many class reunions over the years!!
