Samuel B. Herr, 73, formerly of Orviston, passed away on Monday, August 10, 2020 at the Milton Hershey Medical Center. Born on September 15, 1946, in Lock Haven, he was the son of the late Samuel L & Olive L. (Young) Herr. On March 18, 1972, at the Blanchard Church of Christ, he married Susan K.

He is also survived by his four grandchildren, Samuel Herr, Justin Sweeley, Ashley Gates, and Christopher Chambers, and four great grandchildren: McKenzie, Harper, Ren, and Archer; numerous nieces and nephews, which he loved dearly.

Dear Herr Family,
Sam was one of my best friends when I lived in Orviston. Sam, Mike Packer and I lived a stone's throw apart and we were pals. Sam and I shared the same love -- the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pirates were good back in those days. Sam had a transistor radio and we would go up to the bridge by the church and listen to Pirates games at night. Special memories! Praying for you! May your sorrow one day awaken to a new morning and may you lean on God, who will wipe away every tear and draw you nearer to His heart. Take care!
