Upon retiring around 2010, he was able to enjoy his time with his family or, when not with them. At Tim Horton’s.
Herb will be dearly missed by his wife, partner, and best friend for over 65 years, Mary; daughters, Vickie (Rodney) and Betty (Robert); grandchildren, Michael Mortimer, Jennifer Tyndall, Shawn Campagne, and Christopher Campagne; he would have loved meeting his great grandchildren coming at the end of the summer; he will be missed by his special nephew, Brian, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
In addition to his parents, Herb was predeceased by his infant daughter, Donna Marie, and his sister, Betty Wharton.
In accordance with Herb’s wishes, there will be no visitation or service at this time. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in Herb’s name to the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated by the family.
