It has been a while since I’ve posted here, so it is a bad sad that below is what I am posting. I have a feeling that the focus of this blog is going to be changing slightly. In the meantime… not really sure how to introduce this, but my best friend, my father, has passed away.
Edward Paul Hertzog of Willow Grove passed away Saturday, Aug. 31, 2013. He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth (Ackerman) Hertzog; his children, Edward P. Hertzog Jr. (Kathryn), and Kathryn McCoy (Leonard); his granddaughter, Lucy Hertzog; his many nieces and nephews; and his beloved dog, Buffy.
Edward was a U.S. Army veteran who served in the 3rd Infantry Division. He was a retired sheet metal worker with Local 19.
