Born and raised in Richmond and Burnaby, Herb’s love of carving surfaced early.  He received recognition as an accomplished sculptor of our native birds by the Shuswap Lake Festival of the Arts.  In his early years he worked at Douglas Ranch.  He served five years in the RCAF.  Herb retired after thirty years with the Vancouver Park Board as the man responsible for all the lovely boulevard trees.  His time in Blind Bay gave him great satisfaction with a life well lived.
