His many interests included ham radio operator, television repair, fishing, playing cards and after retirement became an enthusiastic antique car restorer. He rebuilt Model T's and A's for himself and others. Many people called on him for his expert mechanical skills. If he couldn't acquire a part, he'd make it on one of his metal lathes. Many enjoyable hours were spent in meetings, car shows and road trips with the Model A Restorers Club that he and Ruth belonged to for many years. His attendance at many of the car shows resulted with a trophy or an award. Herb had a pilot's license and once flew over Lake Michigan in a Cessna. He was a jack-of-all-trades who was always willing to learn something new. Recently he was teaching himself to type and play guitar.

He is also survived by a brother, Frank (Pauline) Dargel; sisters, Mabel Wagner and Eva Mittlesteadt; brother-in-law, Johnnie (Annie) Wegner; many nieces, nephews and friends.
