I was fortunate to be in a recent bible timeline study with Herb at St. Ann's. He added much humor and knowledge to our break out group. Herb was a role model for us "younger" participants to always actively continue our biblical studies. I will miss him in our fall class. God Bless.

I had the pleasure of working with Herb for many years with our Mended Hearts hospital volunteer visitation group. Herb was a wonderful man, a true gentleman, with a great dry sense of humor. He always supplied lots of laughs to our volunteer group with his keen focus on time management! He will be greatly missed. His family is in our prayers.

I had the great good fortune to work with Herb for many years. He was, without a doubt, the most competent, professional individual I encountered in my career. More than that however, he was a warm, funny, caring person, who was also a very devoted family man. After he retired, we enjoyed lunch whenever I got to Atlanta and he was always as enthusiastic and engaged as ever. Truly one of a kind-he will be missed by all who knew him.

Herb, you were a mentor, the best boss I ever had, and most of all a treasured friend. I will always remember our days together at Diamond. You will be missed. May you rest in eternal peace.
With fond memories, Jim Easton

The Manhattan College alumni community shares the grief, and is now praying for our fellow alumni and the family at this time. The Alumni Office has been informed. As well as the Jasper Jottings community that I personally can reach. We are all a little poorer now. "No man is an island, entire of itself ... any mans death diminishes me". We are sorry for your loss.
