It looks like Herb lost his battle with Cancer today.. We all knew it was coming, but it doesnt make it any less painful..

RIP my brother..

RIP Herb. angel

He was a great dude who will be missed! I will never forget riding in and driving his HEMI GTX...and taking off in third gear. He was gracious and funny. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

RIP Herb angel I met Herb at Stu's while on a company trip to the area. He was friendly as could be and didn't know me from Adam. I remember walking down the road from Stu's to look at his GTX. Great guy. Rest in Peace.

Glad I wasn't the one to post this .. Herb was a very private guy and many on this board probably had no idea he was fighting cancer. It was a huge battle I won't go into the details but I can assure you guys he fought it with everything available to him !

I spent as much time with him as I could and am still deeply saddened by his passing . He was a great man . A family man and a dedicated employee . He loved mopars and his knowledge of the car hobby was amazing. He treated me like family even to the point of my son going to SFO to stay with him and his family .

Herb helped me with countless part scores and vehicle purchases .. Storing them and sometimes fixing them up . We all knew the end was near but for some reason it still hurts as much as if it were sudden .

I did manage to get Herb to come to Nova Scotia and stay for 9 days . We had a blast sadly he never got return . Herb met a who bunch of us Canadians over the years and any friend of mine was a friend of his .

Rip Herb

WOW! I haven't been on here much lately and had no idea he was battling cancer. Last time I saw him was about 3 years ago at the show in Rancho Cordova. Even parked next to him at one of the shows there several years ago. Just a great all around guy. This is a stunner. frown

i have known Herb for many years . He was a great guy. He let me drive his GTX on many occasions. I even got pulled over by CHP launching on an on ramp going thru all 4 gears doing 100 mph with him in the passenger seat. The cop didn't give me a ticket. Just wanted to see the car. He will be missed. Rest in peace Herb.

When Sandy first told me [in confidence] of Herb's battle, my reaction to the news was as anyone else's would have been - to reach out. Herb's need to be a private man kept that from happening. I am greatly saddened by the fact that I never got to say good-bye, but Herb's wishes far outweigh my selfish needs.

One of my fondest memories was [hopelessly] trying to keep up with him as he briskly accelerated down Woodley in Van Nuys. It was a good thing that I was unable to stay with him, as being beside a sideways GTX as it leaves rubber going into third gear is not a clever place to be.

Godspeed, my friend. angel

Found out about Herbs passing yesterday and pretty much kept quiet to respect Herbs desire for privacy. I've known Herb since the mid 90s. Actually met him in passing(he was passing) on I-5 heading to Springfling. He caught my attention in that he was driving his 70 340 Swinger. After that weekend we kept up with each other via the net but I really got to know him when he brokered the deal for the 71 Charger I purchased.

Even though we lived several states apart I always regarded Herb as a friend. He will be sorely be missed, especially by the tight knit group he ran with in his home town.

Herb, my brother, I wish you a safe journey to the other side. angel

Sorry to learn of this. He was always a welcome sight at the Spring and Fall Fling car shows. Herb always made time to say hello, always willing to share stories. Herb had many friends and I'm sure that they all will miss him. I know that he battled with the disease for awhile. My understanding is that he lived longer than the docs expected. I was hoping to hear that he was in remission but at the same time I was worried to ask anyone. This is a problem that I have, NOT knowing and worried to ask for fear that things are getting worse. I've had several family members die from Cancer related issues. Some had luck and held off the disease, others conked out pretty quick.
I saw Rico with Herbs GTX at the 2015 Hot August Nights show. When I saw the car I expected to see Herb near it.
I'm going to miss seeing you buddy.

I remember several years ago he brought the X to Willow Springs to run around the track. Man the smile he had on his face after his first run. He was putting that Hemi through its paces.

Have to admire him, he didn't seem to let his situation get the best of him. Continued to work on that Max Wedge car.

I was in SF in April to Pu that 300 vert. Missed a chance to see him. Sandy flew in the day I headed south so I'm sure they had some quality time.

Yes, Herb was a very private person. He really didn't want to burden people with his disease, so most of it was kept pretty quiet. Rose (Herbie's wife) texted me Wednesday morning with a simple "He's gone". Rose was with him at home as well as his brother Ronnie and hospice. Ronnie told me he was at peace when he passed. Just faded out. So sad. I've known him since he was 17-18 years old. We have had a ton of great adventures together. He was like a brother. Ronnie is going to the funeral home today to work out the next step. Services and such. When I get the information, I will post it, for those interested. He will be missed. Rico

Many of the usual suspects [including Herb] were kind enough to make the long trek down in the Fall of 2012 to a drizzly show at the Embarcadero in San Diego.

Fond memories.

I first met Herb when he came to my house to look at a '69 340/4sp Swinger that a co-worker was selling. Herb didn't buy it, but we had a great time. That was before he bought the '70 Swinger. Couldn't tell you the year, but Jeff Warkentin wound up buying it (speaking of guys who haven't been around here in a long time).

Here's a video I found last night of Herb running the GTX at Sacramento in 2004. Not sure why he was nearly a second off his dial, but the car looked great anyway...

I was as that event at Sac Raceway. I think it was the first or second year he had the GTX. He had a really nice green Dart before that and if memory serves, he said he traded it to his boss for the GTX.

That is correct. Before he bought the Dart he came down here to look at the '69 that he didn't buy.

It's always the good guys. I will never forget putting up a post on here looking for a ride from the Mirage in Vegas to Mopars at the Strip many years ago. Herb had no clue who I was. However he responded and took me to the track that day for my first ride in a Hemi car. You thought we had been friends for years. What a class act.

My prayers go out to Herb, his family and his friends. Did not know him personally, just by some of his posts here. It's obvious he touched many with a warm heart and a friendly smile.

My condolences to his family. Too many people are being lost to this war on Cancer. I know and feel it all too well. I remember him from the board but never met him in person, judging by the posts people are leaving he was a well respected man and added his own groove to this hobby.

Yea Herb was really one of the good people who would help you just for asking. He would come over at night if need be and help work on an engine or give up a part if you needed it.

I am not ready to say goodbye to him but the funeral is this Saturday. So i am sure it will be a sad day for all.

Damn. I haven't been around here (Moparts) much in a while .. just found out about this today when I saw something on FB about it. Herb was a super nice guy, at least from all the interactions I ever had with him, that was my impression. Friendly, humble, helpful, and a great ambassador for the hobby. He gave me a ride in a legit '68 Hemi Dart once years ago in exchange for me taking photos of it for eBay... that was a bad ass ride, for sure. I only knew him very casually, and always had a great admiration and respect for him.. I am truly sorry for those who were close to him.

Hi all Haven't been here in years but seen a post on Stu's facebook (MidPenMopar) and had to come pay my respects.
Some of you may remember me by the Mopars I built in my South Florida shop
Green F6 A12 Six Pack Super Bee
and the 65 Dodge Coronet A/FX drag car that was featured in Mopar Collectors Guide and Mopar Muscle magazines.

Anyway I just wanted to pass on my respects and condolences to all who knew Herb and to those who personally were close to him.
RIP SCATPK aka Herb

The funeral was done perfectly and we all got to express our feelings and love for him. Some light humor helped ease the pain but the sadness was thick in the hall.

As herb would say, "It is what it is"

Thank you Mark Brooks for that great shot of Herb! up
