He was a great guy.  We were in the same Printing class, where I enjoyed getting to know him.  When it came time to design a business card, I got my idea from him.  He suggested making a card for "Herbie's rent a casket" business!  His idea was that, after the funeral, the casket rental company would roll the deceased out of the casket and into the grave, retaining the casket for the next customer!  I enjoyed his macabre sense of humor!

He will be missed be all who knew him.
