Marsengill Jr., Herbert L.  
Herbert L. Marsengill, Jr. The great Herbert L. Marsengill, Jr. "El Herbo" passed from this world Sunday night. He was at his home, embraced by his beloved wife of 49 years, Janice Spears Marsengill, while his children, Brett and Katherine, held his hands. He is survived by his wife, son and daughter, his son-in-law Brent Adams, and grandson Eben Adams, all of whom he loved beyond words. Born and raised in the southern Appalachian town of Clayton, Georgia, Herb left at the age of 18, studied at Young Harris College, Mercer School of Pharmacy, and then worked at the pharmacy at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta, where he met his wife Jan. Drafted to the army immediately after their wedding, Herb served for two years before returning to Atlanta to complete his BA degree in history at Oglethorpe University. Herb and Jan lived most of their lives in Marietta, Georgia, Jan a nurse and Herb a pharmaceutical representative for SmithKline Beecham until their retirement in 2001. They spent the last 15 years at Hilton Head, Herb quickly earning his reputation as the outspoken and honorary mayor of Old Fort Drive, and the truest friend to those who were lucky enough to know him. Full of spirit and wit, often difficult and hardheaded, Herb loved his family and friends deeply and had the very best of hearts. His uncomplaining two-year fight with cancer showed us all the face of courage. He went bravely and peacefully into the next world. Shortly before his death he said that he was content, asking nothing more from life than having raised children he was proud of and taking care of his wife, whom he so clearly adored. He was a sweet and caring soul. We will miss him. A celebration of his life will be at his home, 42 Old Fort Dr., Saturday May 28 from 4-6 pm.
