Herb was a good citizen
While life apparently will go on as usual in Needles Sunday, there are many of us, who in spirit, will be some thousand miles away at the little town of Apache in western Oklahoma where last respects will be paid to Herb Chapman, whom through years of daily association we have learned to love and respect.
Herb will be missed by those among us who have been fortunate in knowing him intimately and who have been privileged to be counted among his closer friends. He will be missed by the business people of the city, by the Rotarians, by the Elks, by the Boy Scouts, and by those of us in every walk of life who have known him.
We will miss his friendly wise-cracks as we met him on the street or dropped into his office for a chat. We will miss his suggestions and his advice in business and civic affairs and his passing leaves a vacant place in our community, a place that no one but Herb could fill.
In summing up his life as we have known him, there is a little sentence of only five words that truly expresses his character and is one of the highest tributes that can be paid, "He was a good citizen".
