Remembering Fellow Rotarian H. Herbert "Herb" Stanley Jr.

Esteemed Rotary member H. Herbert “Herb” Stanley Jr. passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, Feb. 9, 2023, after an extended fight with cancer.

Herb was born Sept. 27, 1938 in his parents’ home, Robeson County, N.C. Upon graduating from Richmond Professional Institute in 1968, Herb began his accounting career in Kilmarnock, and spent over 50 years as an accountant and CPA serving the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula with offices in Urbanna, Cobbs Creek, and Gloucester.

He was very active in the community. In addition to serving on the Gloucester Point Rotary (Paul Harris Fellow), he was also a member of the Urbanna Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors (Treasurer), Middlesex County Lions Club (President), a board member of the York Academy Board of Trustees (Treasurer), and coached several youth sports teams.

Herb loved to fish the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries for flounder, spot, and croaker from his boat “My Dream,” bird hunt with his pointers, “Chip” and “Sam,” and take road trips to Parker’s BBQ.

The Rotary will miss Herb's presence and his tireless commitment to the community, and we extend our condolence to Herb's wife of 61 years, Ann, and his family.
