Herbert was a carpenter. One of his passions was snowmobiling. An active member of the Windy Valley Snowmobile Club in western Maine, he built a warming hut along one of the snowmobile trails in the woods near Newry. After his death, the club members erected a plaque and dedicated the hut to Herbert.
Another of his passions was helping disabled skiers, especially young children, get up the slopes at Sunday River Ski Resort in Bethel, Maine. Beginning in the late 1980's, Herbert volunteered his services to the Maine Handicapped Skiing Program, which is based in Newry, just a few miles from the resort. He pulled the skiers (who were on specially designed sleds) up the slopes with his snowmobile. Many couldn't ride the chairlifts or hang on to the T-bars. He was always there on Fridays, the days young children came to ski. He did this for 17 years, retiring in 2003 because of failing health.
Herbert is buried in Pine Grove Cemetery, West Bethel, Maine.
