I'm so saddened by the news of Herbert's passing. We lived across the street from each other in Maywood, NJ and went to Bogota High School together! He was such a great guy! God Bless you and may you rest in peace. Our deepest condolences to your family and friends. May they find comfort in the memories that will live in their hearts always!

We use to joke about having the same nick name (Bert). He was always a nice guy and always laughing and joking around. My deepest sympathy to his family. May God bless you during this trying time. I know he will be greatly missed. BHS classmate 1960.

So sad and shocked to hear of your passing. Ever since Bogota High School, I have always remember this strange memory. "Heaney Heaney". That is what you put on the top of some type of a form for a class. I too got confused when the form wanted last name first followed by first name. Who ever thought of last name first? However, you got called on it by the teacher. You were a good friend in high school and better man, Heaney Heaney. Thanks for the lasting memory. You will be missed.
