Herbie was born and raised in Hegewisch and maintained many childhood friendships. As an adult he enjoyed good times and old friends at Club 81 Too. He was also an avid Blackhawks, Cubs and Packers fan. Herbie’s favorite place was Manson Lake in Tomahawk, Wisconsin on the pontoon or golf course and he had many cherished friends there. He had a great sense of humor and was the king of bad dad jokes. We will miss him so much.
