I met Herb in feb. of 1968. We dated and married in September of 1968. This was the kindest man I had ever met. I can remember him teaching me how to drive the 69 Chevy(that he dearly loved) and trying to teach me how to water ski(by the time he got back to the boat I had pulled myself to the boat, he was not leaving). We had some laughs about some of the crazy things. We were divorced in Aug. of 1975. Remained friends. To his family, so sorry for your loss.

Herb and I met in Biloxi Mississippi in the US Air Force in 1964. We left Biloxi and went to Misawa Japan for 21 months. We roomed together in Japan. We volunteered and went to Vietnam. We went to Okinawa for jump school, the Philipines for jungle survival school, Washington state for POW training. We arrived in Pleiku Vietnam in October 1966, and flew combat reconnaissance missions in C47 aircraft. We bunked together for that year. We both discharged from the Air Force in October 1967. He was my best man in my wedding. We stayed in contact to his end. He was truly my brother from another mother. Sincere condolences to all his friends and family.

Herbert and I have been friends since early in school. Saw him at another classmate memorial service last year and he came over and gave me a big friendly hug. My thoughts are with those memories and comfort for your family.

I’ve known Herb for many decades (we called him Herby back then) - ever since his sister Anita (also my good friend and neighbor in Ohio) arranged to gave him a wild, week-long sendoff party before he and his friend went off to serve in Viet Nam in the 60’s. The neighborhood in our apartment complex partied hard for over a week.... day and night(!) to give Herby and Glenn a proper Cleveland sendoff. We all learned how to do the “Carolina Shag” and we taught him some Cleveland jitterbug moves. How he loved dancing and music! We all remained friends throughout the years, kept in touch, and shared the grief of those times when we’d lose one of our friends. Everyone who spent a minute with Herby, loved him. He had a great sense of humor, an infectious laugh, and didn’t seem to have negative bone in his body. He’ll be be missed by so many!
