  8. Renee and family, you have my deepest condolences with the passing of Herb. Although we’ve lost touch over the years, the lessons and advice Herb gave me have stuck with me. I know without him I would not be the tradesman or family man I am today. His keen wit and generous nature will be sorely missed. We are all saddened by his loss, but are richer for having known him.

    Renate and family,
    We are so saddened to hear of Herb’s passing. Herb was such a kind and generous man and was so proud of his family. He always took the time to talk to old friends and his company will be sorely missed during coffee time at the airport. Fond memories of this special man will always remain in our hearts.

  17. I was both surprised and saddened to hear of your husband, father and cherished grandfather’s passing. In my brief business experience with both Herb and yourself, Renate, I found Herb to be one of the fairest, kindest and considerate client’s I have worked with. He was such a generous man with a large and caring heart and his family meant everything to him. My prayers and thoughts go out to you now – I know how deeply he will be missed.

    We are so sorry to her of your loss. We are thinking of you all during this difficult time. Our hearts and souls are with you all. Herb was my wrestling watching partner as a child; I fondly remember running over to your house as a kid Saturday mornings to watch with him. He was a sweet and loving person who walked hand in hand with my daughter out to the docks to show her the lake because he would never let her go alone. He will be truly missed by our family; he left us with wonderful memories. Big hugs to you all.

I feel very privileged and fortunate for having known and worked with Herb, he was a good friend and colleague. I will miss our coffee and lunch dates and our conversations on how to fix and make things right. He was highly respected in the industry and by all those who knew or worked with him at the airport. We will all miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.

    Liebe Renate,
    Dir und Deinen Lieben gilt unser herzlichstes Beileid!Wir möchten die Trauer mit Euch teilen, denn auch wir werden Herbert sehr vermissen. Er war ein wunderbarer Mensch, dem seine Familie alles bedeutet hat!
    Dankbar blicken wir zurück auf seinen Besuch in Deutschland, wo wir ihn beim Zusammentreffen mit seinem Bruder noch begleiten durften!
    Herbert war ein Mann mit einem sehr großen Herzen und einer stets positiven Lebensauffassung – immer für andere da, mitfühlend, liebenswürdig und unglaublich humorvoll. Er war aber auch ein Kämpfer, dem das Leben sehr viel abverlangt hat; doch er hat sich immer klaglos und mit viel Mut dem Schicksal gestellt! Dafür gilt ihm unsere ganze Bewunderung!
    Wir verdanken ihm einige der wunderbarsten Momente unseres Lebens, als er uns voller Stolz sein schönes Canada gezeigt hat! In unseren Herzen wird er stets mit seinem verschmitzten Lächeln in Erinnerung bleiben!
    Für die schwere Zeit wünschen Euch viel Kraft und Trost und wir werden vor allem am Dienstag in Gedanken bei Euch sein! Seid alle herzlich umarmt!
    Mit stillem Gruß
    Christa, Heinz, Christoph und Anna
    aus Weissenstadt, Bayern
