Herbert was predeceased by his wife Lenore in October 2009.

Mom and Dad gave us the gift of life and from our first days shaped our lives by their example. Together in life and now in death, they showed us how to live, laugh and love and for that we are forever grateful.

Dad basked in the presence of his grandchildren and great grandchildren of whom he was so very proud. He was blessed to have them all live in the same community and so had the opportunity to see them often.

Thank you to Dr. Perrier and the nurses on 2 East for their excellent care of Dad in his last days. We are very thankful that you were there to ease his passing.

There will not be a service. Anyone wishing to do so may make a donation in Dad’s name to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

Arrangements have been entrusted to

Pleasant Valley Funeral Home.
