Herbert was very likable and loved everyone, he never meet a stranger. He also took care of the homeless, employing them, feeding them, and did all he could to take them off the street.

He shared his craft with many, also teaching his stepson to Lay Concrete. Herbert didn't really like the city and wanted to get back to the woods of Arkansas. He wasn't a rich man, but, he always provided for his family, and tuaght them the value of hard work. They wouldn't trade a Fortune for the life that he gave them. The Brightest, Most Beautiful Light in the World has gone, the day he died. The world lost a special person, there will never be another like him. You will see him again one day in heaven is my hope. Jesus loves me yes I know, so I'll keep rolling with the flow. Survivors: Herbert leaves behind his wife, Bettye Sue Arnold and daughter, LaDonna Lemley of Arlington Texas.
