  3. Herbie was a very dear friend, he made us laugh at breakfast everyday for years. We will miss his mischeivious smile. Our thoughts and loving wishes are with his dear wife Betty and their family.

  4. Herb and I worked at the Coker together for 5 yrs. He eventionally trained me on his job as head operator before I got transferred to the sulfer acid plant. Herb and I were good friends, enjoyed each others company and went fishing together. I will always miss him. His friend, Ed Morgan

  5. My name is Cory Kyle and I was Herberts caregiver for his last year & 2 months. I served Him with total respect & kindness to allow the dignity He so deserved in His final chapter. Herbert had many Friends,every where I’d go (B of A, local shops, pharmacy, etc.)His Friends would ask about & tell Me things like…”Betty & Herbert would dance in Rite Aids isle’s to the muzak playing inside the store”. Herbert had so much ambition for a man in his condition. I grew to love Him dearly and have a great emptiness inside me in his absence. I’m sure Herbert was wonderful to all his friends. I continue with Betty with deep respect & care for Her. Peace Love & Good Happiness Stuff!

  6. HERBRT GILL WAS MY NEIGHBOR HE WAS SO LOVELY AND SUPORTIVE WHEN MY OWN DAD PASSED AWAY, BOTH BETTY & HERBERT WERE KIND TO ME. I’LL NEVER FORGET HERBERT, HE HAS A VERY SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART.

  7. I met Herbert when he was in after care from a hospital stay over a year ago. I wish I could have known him when he was in his better days, but from what I’ve heard in the neighborhood and elsewhere, he and his wife Betty were a great couple and had a lot of friends. I would help Cory Kyle (Herbie’s care giver)sometimes and got to know Herb in spite of his illness, he was a trooper. Very polite and he usually had a smile on his face. Goodbye Hebert, you were loved by your family and will be missed sincerely.
