Herb was employed for 32 years by the New Jersey Natural Gas Company and he was a member of the Ship Bottom Volunteer Fire Company for many years. Herb was a great friend and neighbor always willing to lend a hand and assist anyone in trouble. Herb will be fondly remembered for holding conversation sessions in his garage and the vast numbers of friends who would stop by to chat. Herb enjoyed riding his bike around town, walking on the beach and the boulevard. Herb loved cars and had an encyclopedic knowledge of the year, make and model of almost all cars. Herb loved to watch racing; Martin Truex Jr. was one of his favorite drivers, second only to Richard Petty. Herb loved classic country and folk music and Johnny Cash was his favorite artist along with Charlie Pride. Herb had a great sense of humor and always had an interesting story to relate.
