Linda and Family,
We are so sorry to hear of Herb’s passing. I have so many fond memories of 30 plus years of working with Herb. You always got a laugh out of Herb just watching his mind work and waiting for the punch line. After almost 6 years of retirement I still think of Herb and the true friendship and respect you always got from him. He was a person of his word and actions and could always count on him. I could have never imagined Herb not being on my team. Molly and I always enjoyed seeing Herb and Linda at company functions, getting updates on family and past years of knowing each other. His integrity, knowledge, and abilities were top notch. Herb will be sadly missed. See you again someday, Buddy. Sorry we could not be at Herb’s Memorial. Sincerely, Chris and Molly Antrup

Herb Frohlich was my step-father, but he was always dad to me in my heart. He always called me Mikey even in my adult years and I always affectionately called him Herbie. He passed away on Saturday, April 13, 2019. He came home Saturday, April 6, 2019 from Butterworth Hospital under Hospice Care. He was diagnosed with stage 4 kidney cancer a year and 3 months ago. He fought valiantly against the disease, but cancer is so very cruel and senseless. He did not deserve to suffer the way he did because he was a great man and he deserved much, much better.
Herbie had a dry sense of humor that would cause you to laugh as much as you rolled your eyes. Herbie had a certain demeanor that reminded me of the Fonz from Happy Days but reminded me of Clint Eastwood as he got older. He liked to listen to classic rock in the truck or in the garage while working on cars. When I remember Herbie I picture him in his mechanics overalls and smelling of woodsmoke. Herbie insisted on working on car problems for every family member. He never would accept money for his services, although he did love Amy's peanut butter cookies. He was a very private person and had old fashioned values. He worked for Boar's Head and enjoyed his job. He rarely missed work and even continued to go through his treatments and therapies. Only recently did he even go on short term disability. He felt bad for doing so because that's the way he was. He never wanted to disappoint. He was an honorable man.
Although he had difficulty showing his emotions we all know that he loved us very much. In the last couple of weeks, we saw his soft side and appreciated his comments, advice, concerns and even his attempts to make us laugh.
If I could describe him with one word I would call him stoic. Herbie was a very intelligent person. He was often quiet, but when the mood struck him he enjoyed telling stories. He was a great father and an even better grandparent.
