Herb loved boating, dancing, sharing his house on the lake, and shooting sporting clays (although he could never kill any living thing), but most of all loved his family. He was an amazing father, grandfather, husband, uncle, brother, and friend, and has left a lasting legacy of love and generosity to serve as a guide for those of us left behind.
