I've known Herb for about 30 years like Darold. I knew him mostly as a customer at the nursery, but we talked for hours about all sorts of things. His challenge was to grow unusual species up at his home in the Bay Area. And, on many species he did quite well. He would typically show up at our nursery unannounced and just drop in. I always remembered him when he'd drop by and we'd chat about plants and life. As I recall, he was a physician. He was friendly, very knowledgable, and did have a "twinkle" in his eyes when he got excited about stuff. He was a genuinely good person and I will miss him. I send my sympathies to his family.
