I came to Calvary my Junior year of High School. Most of my classmates and Football teammates had known eachother since early childhood. Herby made me feel at home right away. Always a laugh and light hearted conversation. He was friends with all 4 of my children and wife on Facebook. I know they thought of him like an Uncle. I will really miss our conversations

My condolences and love to the entire Curry family. Our families friendship goes back many years. Herbie and I spent a great deal of time together about 38 years ago as I gave him rides to our businesses in The Gallery of Shops on Hilton Head Island. We shared many of great times and stories together as well as time on the golf course and the putt putt course on the Island. Some stories I will have to keep to my self!! He had such a infectious smile and personality which always brought a smile to his friends and customers faces. Herbie was especially so very proud of his daughter Brittany and her achievements in life. He will be missed by everyone who was so blessed to have shared his friendship. May he RIP. Your pal, Peag

Herbie will be the same lovable person when he returns in paradise. Jesus brings back the same person, only in good health. Lazarus’ sisters had no problem recognizing their brother, when Jesus awakened him from “sleep” in the grave 4 days. We know Herbie is returning, as John 5:28,29 ,since it is no problem for the heavenly Kingdom government to preform this miracle. What a blessing to return to an earth cleansed from all wicked people: Psalms 37:10,11 There will be no more pain, sickness, or death. Rev 21:3,4 We will live as intended for the first people : forever in a paradise. Jesus sacrifice buys back what Adam lost. All of the animals will be tame. Isaiah 11:6-9 How thrilling it will be to attend a resurrection instead of a funeral. We will have complete peace earth-wide. No more pollution ,Rev 11:18 May we survive the great tribulation and greet Herbie back home. Love and Prayers, Sandy Wirfs

Although I haven’t physically seen Herbie in many years, his Facebook posts kept me laughing and thinking “same old Herbie” from our days at Calvary. Many Cavaliers have said this and I will too: No matter how many years pass or distance grows, those of us who attended Calvary Day School together will always be family. And Herbie’s untimely death means we just lost another member too soon. Prayers to the Curry family as you mourn this tragic loss.
