Obituary for LAWRENCE HERBERT, JR.

Lawrence Herbert, Jr. was born on November 11, 1923 in Sunderland, MD to the late Lawrence and Mary Frances Herbert. He departed this life on Sunday, July 7, 2013 at his home. Big Junior as he is affectionately known was educated in Calvert County public school. At a young age he worked as a farmer and continued until his health failed. Many years he had a great harvest of sweet potatoes. He worked for various companies in construction and carpentry. You could always find 'Big' working. He took special care of his roses and his dogs. Later he developed a love for cats and cared for them with great affection. He liked to fish and hunt. Lawrence was also known as 'BadNews' which was his CB handle. With a long whip antenna attached to the rear of his truck, he could broadcast and receive broadcast for long distances. For hours and hours, with his scanner turned into the local area frequency, Junior could keep up with the latest police activity. He had a loving spirit and great sense of humor. He was a gentle giant with a strong voice. He often spoke of the way the Lord brought him through to this time. He is preceded in death by his parents, his brothers, Wayne Herbert, Sr., Raymond Herbert, and Russell Howe; his sisters-in-law, Dorothy Herbert, Margaretta Chambers and niece, Shirlene. He is survived by his longtime companion Brenda Coby, his brother, Bobby Chambers, his sisters-in-law, Landaus Herbert and Katrina Howe, his nieces and nephews, Robert, Bruce, Carl, Steve, Brian, Dexter, Debbie, Denise, Deana, Derrick, Lorraine, Wayne, Sharon, and Velma, and Berna, Valerie, Vicky, Damon who affectionately called him uncle and a host of great nieces and nephews, cousins, John Herbert, Jesse Jones, Floyd Jones, Myrtle Creek, Sylvia Booth, Betty Offord, Rosa Lee Wallace and Michael Holt and other relatives and friends.
