Herb was good guy, I also worked with him for 10 years at Mercedes Benz. We had a lot of history there and good memories. He was always happy and positive. My thoughts are with his family!!

I worked with Herb at Mercedes Benz Truck Company for 10 years. He always had a smile on his face, was always positive and put his heart and soul into his work. He will forever be missed. My deepest condolences to his family and friends.
