James Herbert

James “Jim” Herbert went to his heavenly home on May 18, 2020.

He was born in Sidney, Ohio on June 12, 1943 and passed away peacefully in his sleep in Rossville, Georgia, on May 18, 2020.

After graduation, Jim worked as an electrician in several locations in Ohio, Kansas and Louisiana.

Jim is survived by his six children: Jimmy Herbert, Jr. of Kansas, Paul (Kate) Herbert of Kansas, Ron Hammons of Texas, Rhonda Lewis of Mississippi, Randy (Margie) Herbert of Texas, Shelly Stein of Texas, 14 grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, his brothers: Jerry (Ethel) Herbert and Kenny (Carolyn) Herbert both of Ohio, two sisters: Janice (Loren) Britt of Ohio, Carolyn (Dan) Cregan of Florida and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Lillian Louise Herbert, three brothers, Larry Hodges of Arkansas, Robert “Bob” Hodges of Ohio, Edward Herbert of Ohio, one sister, Jean Sloan of Kansas, and one grandson, Cristian Hammons of Texas.

Jim enjoyed fishing and car racing and spent many hours in his own race car on many tracks. NASCAR was his favorite sport and he spent many hours watching it. As an electrician and mechanic there was nothing that he couldn’t fix, although after his “repairs” he usually had a bucket of parts left over that “he didn’t need”.

Jim loved to laugh and have fun. If you were around him, you couldn’t help but smile.

He will be greatly missed by so many who knew and loved him.

Jim – We will see you again in heaven!
