On Tuesday, December 29, 2020, Herbert Lee Armstrong, loving husband and father of three, passed away at the age of 64.
Herbert was born on December 7, 1956 in Zachary, Louisiana to John and Laura Armstrong. On March 16, 1978, he married his best friend and the love of his life Helen Marie Roach. Together they raised two sons Hijah and Hyshawn and one beautiful daughter, Heidi.
Herbert had a passion for classic cars and Rhythm & Blues. He enjoyed working on cars while listening to music. If you passed by while he was working on a car, he’d welcome you over to laugh, talk about cars, music and Jehovah God; which was his greatest passionteaching others about God’s Kingdom, along with his best friend, Helen. He enjoyed teaching his boys about Jehovah’s creations and how to fix cars (or fix anything, because if it was broken he could fix it). He loved going on long rides with his wife Helen, meeting new people, helping those in need, and he had an infectious smile and a caring heart. He always looked for ways to bring enjoyment of life to those he met.
Herbert was preceded in death by his father, John; mother, Laura; daughter, Heidi; brother, Gerald (Lydia); Sister, Joyce Causey (Elmore Causey). He is survived by his wife Helen, two sons, Hijah (Kendal), Hyshawn, his siblings Reno (Ethel), Raymond (Quinessa), Rita Sims (Barton Sims), Kale (Loretta), Delynn Wisham (Robert Wisham), and a plethora of cousins, nieces and nephews.
Herbert was an exemplary father, husband, brother, and uncle who will be dearly missed by all and our hearts ache in disbelief at his passing. The bible says at ECCLESIASTES 7:1 “A good name is better than good oil, and the day of death is better than the day of birth”. Herbert’s reputation and life course identified him as one who will be remembered in God’s book of life.
