I was blessed to be a neighbor of Herb.
I deeply appreciated Herb's intelligence and integrity, and his protective kindness given to my friend Shirley Turner.
Rest in peace dear Herb ~

As a neighbor of Herb, I have fond memories of working with him in the design of the new walk-way path and application of detail to the path, in front of and leading up to his front door and driveway.
His attention to detail and consideration of his next door neighbor’s likes, was something to be admired, respected and remembered.
Herb loved his planting’s along side his walk-way and had me make sure they would go undisturbed thruout construction, (and replaced if necessary). .
A respectful gentleman to the max, it was a pleasure having him as a neighbor. R I P
