My sincere condolences to Helen and family on hearing of Herbie's passing. May God hold you all in his hands and guide you through this loss. He had such compassion for others and always made me feel welcomed at the pool, our teacher gatherings or just running into at shopping sites. Herbie was a true gentleman and dedicated husband, father, and grandfather. May he rest in peace.

The entire Wachter family has lost their patriarch. Hearts are heavy and souls feel lost we are sure. We had the privilege to know Herb through the marriage of my sister into the family close to 37 years ago. Knowing Herb was an honor, he was such a kind soul with endless love for his family, it was never unnoticed. May he rest peacefully.
