Herbie was such a great asset to the Scituate Public Schools. He was my bus driver who greeted us with a daily smile. We still share many positive memories of him, e.g., meeting him digging clams in Humarock.
May he rest in peace.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I was just speaking of him the other day -- he was such a kind man. My mother drove school bus for him way back. I'll always remember him fondly.
