His family would like to thank the staff at Treats Falls House and the many caregivers who cared for Herbert over the years.
He is survived by a sister, Becky and her husband, Richard Brown; two brothers, Cedric Knights and his wife, Helen, and Dean Knights; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
