On Friday September 25th, 2020 SFC (ret.) John E. Herbst, loving husband and father, passed into the arms of his Lord and Savior at the age of 89. John was born in McCook, Nebraska into a large and close-knit family.

He proudly served 27 years in the US Army which included 1 tour in Korea and 2 tours in Vietnam in which he earned the Bronze Star. After retiring from the military, John worked for the state of Texas for 15 years. He touched countless lives with his open heart, generous nature, and kind demeanor.
