Herb was an avid sportsman, hunter and fisherman.  He played on many fastpitch softball teams in St. Paul, Minneapolis and on the Roseville senior slow-pitch softball league until he was 83 years old.  Herb also played on various touch football, basketball and volleyball leagues.  Most of his free time you would find Herb fishing throughout MN, Canada and at his cabin in Park Rapids, MN.
