Herb and I have been friends since the 1970’s when we both worked at Airco Carbon. We would talk on the phone about once a week about the Steelers & Pirates and our past work experience. He had an excellent memory and would remember everything and we had a lot of laughs. I’m going to miss those phone calls. My condolences to the family.
