MFD Mourns Loss of Honorary Chief SeamanFrom: Mineola American - an Anton Newspaper
Herb battled many of Mineola's major fires, including Reserve Supply in 1932, Richmond's Hardware in 1963 and the Mineola Hotel fire in 1966.
Mineola Fire Chief Scott Strauss said, "I've known Herb for more than 25 years and he truly loved the fire service. Even after 72 years in the department, Herb was still attending monthly company meetings up until about five years ago. He really enjoyed being at the firehouse and spending time with his brother firefighters."
Herb resided on Wellington Road with his wife, Marion and their children. Departmental services were held at Weigand Funeral Home in Williston Park.
