Herb was a friend and Masonic colleague of my father, Paul. I first came to know him when I started helping him gather volunteers for the Salvation Army Bell Ringers among my students at Alexander Middle School in Nekoosa. When I tried to nominate him for Wis Rapids Citizen of the Year in the late 1990's, I was advised that he had already been recognized 40 odd years earlier and I was WAY too late! The finest example of a kind soul, a good citizen, and a brave and selfless human being I have ever had the honor to know. God's speed old friend.
