Wayne Lloyd Herb, 96, of Elysburg, and formerly of Pitman, entered into eternal rest Tuesday at Geisinger Medical Center, Danville.

Born Aug. 17, 1922, in Klingerstown, he was a son of the late Lloyd S. Sr. and Mabel Clark Herb. He was married to the late Arlene Jacko, who preceded him in death in 2001.

A farmer and avid sportsman, Wayne worked 20 years as a mechanic and retired from Kerris and Helfrick, Mount Carmel.

Wayne loved to tinker with engines, enjoyed his weekly ritual of dinner and cards with friends, and was famous for his homemade ice cream, peanut butter pies and sauerkraut. He will be deeply and fondly missed by family and friends.

In addition to his parents and wife, Wayne was preceded in death by two brothers, Clayton Herb and Lloyd Herb Jr.; two sisters, Helen Herb Fertig and Grace Herb Falck and their spouses; two nieces; two nephews; a great-grandnephew.
