It is with profound sadness that the family of Paul Andrew Herbert announces his passing on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at the young age of 57. Paul passed away peacefully at home after a long battle with ALS. The amazing courage and strength Paul displayed throughout his journey over the last three years was truly inspiring to all and a testament to his deep faith in God.
Paul will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 22 years, Mary Jayne and his cherished daughter, Emily Jayne Herbert of Cornwall, NY. Paul is also survived by his mom, Janet Herbert of New Windsor, his brothers: Bruce Herbert (Amy) of College Station, TX and Gregory Herbert (Janel) of Los Gatos, CA.

Paul was predeceased by his father, Otto Herbert.
Paul was employed by IBM as a Corporate Buyer for 33 years. He was a parishioner and active in the church at St. Johns, Cornwall as well Habitat for Humanity in Newburgh NY. Paul was also an avid sports enthusiast and enjoyed hiking and camping in the Adirondacks. He was frequently seen being a Trail Angel for the many backpackers hiking the Appalachian Trail, providing water and other needed resources.

Dear Mrs. Herbert, Mary Jayne, and Emily:
I just learned of Paul's passing. I am so sorry for your loss. Along with the many memories of the beautiful years in Quaker Mill, I will remember Paul and the warm person he was; a committed Dad and always friendly and interested in the kids. My love to all of you - Liesl Potter Van Ledtje

The Herbert Family, Please accept my sincere condolences. My kids, Abby and Emmett, and I loved our time in Sunday School with "Mr. Paul." Paul was one of the kindest people I have ever met, and a beautiful human being. I am so sorry for your loss.

Paul had many business relationships over the course of his career. I was fortunate enough to have a business relationship with Paul as a result of the company that I work for, Juniper Networks, having business with IBM. I knew Paul through several business dinners and many phone calls. Paul was always a person that our team could turn to for solutions to problems and generally a great person to talk to. Paul had a steady hand, a practical approach, and a wonderful attitude that made you want to work with him. We certainly wish we could thank him for the many positive interactions and his service. Our deepest condolences from the Juniper Networks team.
