Book of Condolences

Walt Cherwaty As I knew Herb he was a rather unique individual who just called a spade a spade and listened to his own conscience and did his thing . I admired his stick-to-itiveness despite some difficulties . We shared the same birthdate and birthplace and ........a silly sense of humour which I shall miss. I pray his memories can sustain you all in your difficult days ahead .
Ross Rowe - Greenhill's Masters CommitteeOna & Family - On behalf of the Masters Golf League of Greenhills Golf Club I express our sincere sympathies to all on the passing of Herb. He was a member of our Masters group for many years & persevered to attend as often as his health permitted. We all miss his sense of humour and his finesse around the greens. May you find comfort in knowing others share in your grief.
