He had numerous devoted friends across the globe that were dear to his heart and too many special friends to name. He retired from RJ Reynolds, but was a carpenter by trade. He loved working with his hands and completed many projects around Winston Salem. Herbert spent much of his later years volunteering at Samaritan Ministries Soup Kitchen, always bringing a smile and cheerful attitude. Herbert was also a faithful visitor to area nursing homes. He was a deacon at Shallowford Baptist Church for 40 years. Many people were proud to call Herbert their friend, but not as proud as his children were to call him their father.
