<div itemprop="description">Peacefully at St Joseph’s hospital surrounded by his family. Herb passed away in his 83rd year on Thursday, February 16, 2017. Beloved husband to Jane (nee Rosser) of 58 wonderful years. Loved father of Michael (Beverly), Russell and Colin (Wendy). He will be missed by his grandchildren Jason, Rachel, Steven, Ryan and Andrew, Pre-deceased by his oldest son Stephen John, his sister Beverly, nephew Christopher and his parents Bert and Thelma. Uncle Herbie will be missed by several nieces and nephews, “mostly nephews”. <br> <br>Herb lived life as it should be done. There was not a day he lived where he did not seek adventure, laugh loudly and speak boldly. He was born in Montreal, but moved to Hamilton as a young man. He met his wife Jane while volunteering at Chedoke hospital and they were married in 1958. He gave his four sons every ounce of his energy. He was a tremendously hard worker who always supplemented his main job with a “side hustle” – a taxi business, a booking agent for musicians or simply his entrepreneurial idea of the month. He was very actively involved in youth sports in Ancaster. He was a coach and manager for many years in both baseball and hockey. He was a founder of the World Invitational T- Ball Tournament that is still held annually in Ancaster. He was elected to the Ancaster Town council in 1985 and stayed involved in local politics. He battled Cancer and Spinal stenosis and beat them both. He loved vacationing at his sons’ cottage, cheering for the Habs, caring for his friends and helping his family. <br> <br> <br>A Prayer He Lived By <br> <br>Lord, teach me to be generous. <br>Teach me to serve you as you deserve; <br>to give and not to count the cost, <br>to fight and not to heed the wounds, <br>to toil and not to seek for rest, <br>to labor and not to ask for reward, <br>save that of knowing that I do your will. <br> <br>- St. Ignatius of Loyola <br></div>
