Herb had a great love of cars, especially Chevys and Corvettes.  For many years, he owned a small engine repair shop in Herman, Nebraska.  He was close with his father, Herb, and was extremely proud of his family.  He loved fishing, racing, boating, shooting, and the Huskers.  He loved nothing more than spending time with his grandchildren.  He was an avid gun lover and shared his passion for shooting with his sons and his grandchildren.  He was a competitive horseman in his younger years, and in the last few years he purchased two horses and enjoyed sharing his knowledge and passion with his grandkids.  He was a regular at Arnie’s football parties, a good friend to many, and could be found most weekends on the river hanging with Paul, Denny, and Tom.
