Herbert Simon Fecker
Herb Fecker, 80, passed away Nov. 29, 2019, in his home in Thomasville, Ga. Herb was born to Alice (Senger) and Herbert S. Fecker, Sr. He is survived by his wife, Dwila Craycraft-Fecker; son, Herb (Sally) Fecker of Dallas, Ore., and daughter, Leigh Ann (David); and three grandchildren, Erin, Emma, and Evan of Valrico, Fla.; brother, Joe (Linda) Fecker of Hoopeston; nieces and nephews; and his faithful companion, Jett. Preceding him in death were his three sisters, Fran, Mary Ann, and Claire. Herb was a graduate of Schlarman High School and the Southern Illinois University - Carbondale.
For many years Herb was a commercial-investment realtor in the Tampa, Fla., area, finishing his career as the real estate manager for the City of Tampa. Herb's love of teaching, public speaking, children, and dogs led him to his involvement in teaching real estate law, Big Brothers Big Sisters, the City of Tampa's Tutor/Mentor program, and Southeastern Guide Dogs. Herb's love of reading and equal love of the Tampa Bay Rays allowed him much pleasure in his retirement years.
But most importantly, he brightened the lives of his family. He was full of stories from when he was a child getting into trouble (or if you ask him it was his brother, Joe), and had a never-ending supply of quick wit and ornery sayings he didn't hesitate to share with the grandchildren, who loved him dearly.
The world will be just a little bit dimmer without Herb, an incredibly loved brother, husband, father and papa, in it.
There will be no memorial services at this time.

I'm so sorry to hear of Herb's passing.
I went to school with Herb/ Schlarman High.
He was a wonderful person and friend. He will be missed by anyone who knew him. His family will be in my prayers.
