He took me to my first baseball games at Comiskey, back in the days of Early Winn and Nellie Fox. He was there with my sister and myself, bringing comfort to my mother in her last days. He was an example of what it means to be a mensch and will be dearly missed.

I will always remember Uncle Bobby! Yes, that was Herb's nickname he went by back in the 60's. He was in my brother's and my life from very early on. He visited often and we very much enjoyed the visits. He'd come by at some point weekly to visit my mom, his sister Harriet, and they enjoyed coffee and conversation together weekly for years. I am very glad that we were able to talk a number of times before he passed. We were also able to go through my family photo album and he was so excited to see the old pictures from his childhood. He picked out pictures of friends and relatives and took some to send to the family members of those people who were important to him throughout his life. I found that to be very sweet and thoughtful of him. I will always hold him in my heart and remember his kindnesses and generosity. Please always know I love you Uncle Bobby!
Esther and Harriet, I'm sure, were there to greet his spirit, as I believe were all other relatives and friends, now in Heaven.

Dear family:
My deepest sympathy on the passing of Herbie. Such a nice guy and always a smile. A memory of Carrie and Herb...riding home from Billy’s in the back of a squad car. Our car had snow and ice in the tail pipe. So sorry for your loss.

I grew up knowing him as “Uncle Herbie”. He was one of my Dad’s best friends. My Dad, Ron Magnes, Frank Sears “Uncle Frank” and Uncle Herbie were the THREE AMIGOS. I adored him and he ALWAYS had a great smile for you when you saw him. I can just see my Dad welcoming him and putting his arms around him....I love you Uncle Herbie....Rest in peace....❤
