Herb was a Yonkers resident for over 60 years. He owned Urich’s Stationary Store for more than 30 years, “down the end,” with his late brother-in-law, Harold Urich where you could always find him behind the counter with a cigar in his hand and a smile on his face. He was a World War II Veteran where he served in the Army Air Forces. He loved all sports, reading, Atlantic City but most of all he loved his family and friends and they loved him. He will be forever missed.
