Mr. Herbert Raymond Wrobel, also known to people as Herb, died peacefully in his son’s home on March 29, 2021 in Gambrills, Maryland at the age of 94.
Herbert was born on November 20, 1926 in Washington D.C. to Rudolph Joseph Wrobel and Karoline Wiebel Wrobel. He graduated from Central High School in 1944. He served in the US Army in World War II and later received an honorable discharge. He obtained a degree from Benjamin Franklin University, and began his career in the Government and worked his way up to become a Section Chief for the Internal Revenue Service.
While working for the IRS he met his beautiful wife, Patricia Ann Rinehart and they married on September 3, 1949.
