Albert Ernest Herbert Sr., 71, of Morganza, MD passed away peacefully on March 2, 2022 at his home with his loving family at his side.
He was born on August 26, 1950 to the late Howard Leo Herbert and Martha Elizabeth Morgan Herbert.
Ernest is a lifelong resident of St. Mary’s County. He grew up on the family farm raising tobacco. On July 5, 1975 he married his beloved wife, Tamsey Lorraine Herbert in Roan Mountain, TN. Together they celebrated over 46 wonderful years of marriage. He was employed for many dedicated years as a maintenance technician with Seven Stars until his retirement. He grew large, bountiful gardens every year and loved to can his harvest. He enjoyed hunting, crabbing and fishing with his sons and grandchildren. He liked to watch old westerns, listening to country music and Blue Grass, and playing lotto scratch off tickets. He was very handy and could fix just about anything. If he couldn’t fix it, it was not fixable. Ernest was a dedicated family man, and loved spending time with his family, whom he was very close with.
