Condolences to you and your family. Herb was such a happy, helpful and loving person and am sure will be greatly missed by all.
Sympathies Brian and Annick Richardson
We were neighbours of Herb and Renate’s and even though we left Pine Falls 41 years ago, have remained close friends ever since.
All our best love to Renate, her sons Jody and Joel and their families.
Mike and Dora Kolody
Heartfelt condolences to you all.
Renate, Jody, Diane, Joel & Carmen please accept my heartfelt condolences to you and all your family. Sending you strength and love ❤️.
Renate, you and Herb and the boys are family to me and Herb’s sudden loss hurts to my core.
Herb and your friendship with my parents, his (and your!) help with them in their final years and even the revitalized Village Green bench are gifts of your kindness and caring that we Rosentreters will never forget.
Jody and Joel, some of my fondest childhood memories were shagging fly balls in the Village Green on a Sunday night with both of you and Herb. He could always hit it better than we could! He would stay as late as we wanted, he inspired me and I always enjoyed my time with him.
Herb, thank you for your kindness and your friendship. I will so miss our visits on the front porch when I am in town. That big smile won’t be forgotten.
The biggest hugs to everyone, Kurt in Toronto

Renata Jody and Joel. My sincere condolences. After reading Kurt’s message my child hood memories are like they happened yesterday. The many trips for hockey in the back of Herbs van or loading up our dirt bikes and head to hillside beach for the weekend will always be remembered.

Dear Renate, Jody, Joel and family,
We can only imagine your feelings of loss. Herb was such a special person, wonderfully generous and thoughtful with his time, always willing to help, and with a smile on his face.
We enjoyed calling the Johnson house. If Renate was out, we would have a great conversation and many laughs with Herb about almost anything, although hockey and the latest book he was reading were always hot topics. And he would inevitably close with, “She’ll (Renate) call you back just as soon as she gets home,” and he would chuckle.
The conversations on the front patio with Herb will long be treasured and remembered. Thinking of you all fondly,
Allan and Donna
It was with shock and sadness when I heard of Herb’s sudden passing I always enjoyed our lunch breaks in the tin shop with Herb the consummate chair person Herb was as solid a community member as could be and had a good heart to all who knew him. To the family please accept my deepest condolences

Renate, Jody, Joel and family,
I was so sorry to hear of Herb’s passing. We spent many hours talking and telling stories, both at the Pine Falls restaurant before covid and after covid at his home. It was entertaining, fun and at times profound. I will miss our chats immensely. The suddenness of it all is heart-shaking. My most deepest sympathies to you all.
Thinking of you,
Mel & Eileen Jaster
I really enjoyed volunteering with Herb at the Pineview seniors home and the Golden Leisure club. He was such a good friend and I really enjoyed the many coffee breaks we had together at Shirley’s
Our thoughts are with you Renata and your family. He will be missed
