Herb then successfully established a Health Care Business that thrives today. He built this company from the ground up and treated his employees as family. Herb was a great mentor, friend, and boss.

Herb was a wonderful brother to his sister, Laura. He protected her, taught her things, and always made sure she was okay since there were so many miles between each other. She will miss the daily talks and banter between each other.

Herb has dear friends that will miss his humor and his RED shoes that made him who he was. He never tried to be someone he wasn’t, and the red shoes proved his simplicity with life.
