Celebrating the life of
Herbert V. Fitzgerald
December 09, 1955 - September 16, 2023
Herbert Vincent Fitzgerald Sr. (Herb), 67, of Savannah, GA. passed away Saturday, September 16, 2023, after a long illness, surrounded by his family.
Herb was born in Savannah, GA. December 9, 1955. He was preceded in death by his parents, John Joseph Fitzgerald Sr., and Betty Becton Fitzgerald.
Herb found his greatest joy on the rivers surrounding Burnside Island where he grew up with his two brothers and three sisters. Herb loved shrimping, fishing, and sailing on their Hobie Cat with Linda. Herb, his brothers and sisters, and many friends often tell entertaining stories of their adventures growing up in Rio Vista.
Herb worked as an equipment operator at Georgia Port Authority for many years. Before his illness he worked for himself doing electrical work and boat repair.
He is survived by his devoted wife Linda S. Fitzgerald, his daughter, Adrian Wingrove (Edward), son, Herbert V. Fitzgerald Jr., and grandchildren, Marissa Fitzgerald, Hailey Wingrove and Hunter Wingrove (Kim). He is also survived by his brothers and sisters, John (Jackie) Fitzgerald (Beth), Virginia (Gigi) Taft (Art), Mary Pace (Randal), Patrick (Pat) Fitzgerald (Nan) and Laura (Laurie) Fitzgerald, several nieces and nephews, and a large extended family.
His family would like to thank Hospice Savannah for the care provided to Herb during his stay both at home and at Hospice. Dr. Perdue, Chandra, Melissa, Rebecca, Jacob, Shawn, Harmony, and the entire staff are all kind and compassionate people who made us feel like family. We would also like to thank Kylie and Jen, Herb's physical therapists from Fox Rehab. And of course, Linda would like to especially thank Irene who put up with Herb and his friend "Alexa" every week.
In lieu of flowers please send donations to Hospice Savannah.
A memorial service will be held in celebration of Herb's life at his home on Saturday September 23rd at 2pm. Friends are welcome to attend.

Linda, I’ll never forget how you taught me to crochet when you pregnant with your first child. Herbie and Johnny did their thing while we crocheted. That was around 1978. God bless you and your family.
