Bruce Andrew Herba, 57, passed away Tuesday, January 5, 2021 of COVID.  He was the beloved husband of Carol DeVincent-Herba and the beloved son of John J. Herba.  He was preceded in death by his mother, Mary Jane Herba. He is also survived by his sisters Catherine (Michael) Herba-Rossi of Lexington, South Carolina, Laura Herba of Melbourne, Florida, Brother Jack (Sandy) Herba of Highland Village, Texas, nephews Stephen Rossi, Morgan Rossi and niece Lauren Herba.  Also survived by brother-in-law John (Jackie) DeVincent, stepdaughter Jessica Henry and stepson Daniel Henry, known as Papa Bruce to grandchildren Connor, Addison and Caden.

Bruce was an accomplished Chef; however, his main occupation was an Aerospace Engineer for 30+ years.  Bruce was known for his sense of humor, but even more for his overwhelming generosity to friends and family.  He loved the beach and his beach picnics were always a huge hit. It was his place of solitude.  Bruce loved to take cruises with his wife Carol and traveled to many places.  He adored his puppy Lita Mae.  Another love of his was his 2014 Dodge Challenger Shaker.   He loved everything about space and planes. He never missed a launch, an air show, or a chance to watch the space station go by.  He enjoyed going to his dad’s to jet ski with his dad and sister Laura.

The world has lost an amazing man, husband, son, and brother.  Until we meet again, Fly High Bruce!
