You have my deepest condolences for your loss of Herbert. Death is truly an enemy of all of us. The Bible book of Revelation in chapter 21 verses 3 and 4 holds out the beautiful hope for our future in seeing our loved ones again.

CandleI had the opportunity to work with you and witness your stellar knowledge of UL safety standards and test procedures during a UL audit. You were a great man, very intelligent and always kind. Thanks for your help and you were already missed. May you rest in peace with our Lord, Herb.

So sorry for your loss. I hope that your family, friends, and faith in God’s hope for us can help you in this difficult time.

I met this wonderful Man in 1997.He was a Lab Technician for Appleton Electric. Herb was always a very mild mannered Man but he did share his insights on life with me. He was my elder and he reported to me but since we were both Soldiers from different generations of the Army I valued his feelings emensly. Not sure how to conclude here other than he would discuss his family with me often and he always had that crooked smile on his grinning face when he did so. I was blessed to have met his "clan" Memorial Day weekend. Wonderful folks from Antigo.
I will miss you my Brother at Arms. Just goodbye for now but not farewell. I will see you agian my friend.

I have many wonderful memories of Uncle Herbie! More Christmas mornings than I can count, shenanigans on the back porch and the urban legend that he could blow smoke rings out of his ears! I know that he will missed dearly by you all. God Bless, Katie Neufeld
