Obituary Overview

Herbert Lumby

Sadly, our father Herbert William Lumby passed away on Friday May 20, 2022 at Alexandra Marine and General Hospital, age 74. He had been diagnosed with metastatic lung cancer in late March. He was predeceased by his parents Olive “Bud” and Bill Lumby and is remembered by siblings Howard and Marcia Thomas (Hadyn), best friends Pat Sutherland and Carole Broadley, and his daughters Dana and Molly.
Dad was always an avid reader. His lifelong pursuit of knowledge had him visiting the library weekly to retrieve a stack of books. He could be found in a quiet corner at parties reading something from the host’s shelves. He had an uncanny ability to understand how machines worked and how to fix them. He never met a tool he didn’t improve, and amassed a large collection scouring flea markets and yard sales. He was a welder by trade.
Herb was born in Goderich and lived nearly his whole life here. He will be remembered fondly.
A private memorial has been held. Friends may sign the book of condolences at www.mccallumpalla.ca
