    We were so saddened to hear about Herb. We have such wonderful memories of times spent with him over the years ~ the CFB crew, company picnics, the many dances and especially all the fun times we spent up at Donner hanging out and playing bean bags. He truly was a special man, one of a kind and we will miss him dearly. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

  • Richard MacCracken says:

    Grandpa, thank you for all the memories growing up with you. The camping and fishing trips to Donner, the weekends when we would go to Cool and feed the cows, and the deer hunting trips to Chilcoot. I love you and will miss you until we meet again.

  • Lisa says:

    Big Papa, We are going to miss you so much. Thank you for all of the great times at Donner, and Holidays at the house. Everybody needs a Big Papa like you! Rest in peace! He kept at true good humour’s mark The social flow of pleasure’s tide: He never made a brow look dark, Nor caused a tear, but when he died. ~Thomas Love Peacock Love You Lisa

  • Sandy Siegrist (Niece) says:

    I always remember Uncle Herb as being fun loving and will miss his rosy smile and good natured teasing. I look forward to seeing him again someday when we are all reunited in Heaven. My prayers and love go out to Aunt Marian, Linda, Richard and the rest of the family.
