John Joseph Herbert Jr.

August 14, 1926May 19, 2021

John J. Herbert, Jr., 94, of Winter Springs, Florida passed away on May 19, 2021. He was born in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio to the late Charlotte and John Herbert on Aug. 14, 1926

He grew up during the depression and had stories about those days. He graduated from Cuyahoga Falls high school in 1944 and within two weeks he was drafted into the army. He was sent to the Pacific as a field medic and was in a number of battles from Manila, Philippines to Japan. After the war he worked for Goodyear Tire Company, Akron, Ohio.

John married his high school sweetheart, Helen Czuha in 1949. He worked as a pipe layer at the East Ohio Gas Company. Helen and John would pack the car with suitcases and two siblings and drive to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida many times. In 1982, after 34 years at East Ohio, he took an early retirement as the Construction and Maintenance Supervisor. He was happy to relocate to Florida.

He enjoyed bowling leagues, square dancing and striking up conversations with anyone. He taught his son how to shoot craps and the pair would go to casinos everywhere. His pride and joy were his three grandsons and great granddaughter.

John Herbert is survived by Helen Herbert, daughter Carol, son John, three grandsons and great granddaughter.

May he rest in peace.

John and I worked together in his latter years at Central Parking System. I enjoyed our lunch time. He would tell me stories about his children growing up and his grandsons. Boy was he proud of them. He told me how he and Helen built their house. How he enjoyed working and raising his family. He was such a consistent man. Lunch was half a sandwich on whole wheat bread, an apple, a banana and sometimes a bell pepper. He would slice the apple and banana and share them with me while telling all his stories. I am so happy to have had that time with him. Rest in peace John.
