Jan. 21, 1954 -
May 9, 2007
Our beloved Michael Herold son, brother, husband, father and friend, came into this world as the third child to Gerald and Louise Herold on Jan. 21, 1954, in Wewoka, Okla. Mike entered into the Gate of Heaven on May 9, 2007.
He leaves behind his beloved wife of 21 years, Barbara Herold; his daughter Rachel Maynard Herold; his mother K. Louise Herold; his two sisters, Sharon Durkin and Diane Herold; his brother Dr. Christopher Herold, all of Calif.; his caregivers and in-laws, Mr. and Mrs. David E. Roberts; his three pets Scout, Jane and Presley; a host of family and friends.
He was preceded in death by his father, Gerald Herold, his grandmother Mae Fairbanks and a long-time friend - his dog Mollie.
Growing up in a military family he traveled throughout his childhood, but found peace in his home in Red Oak. He attended the University of Texas - El Paso seeking his degree in mass communications. He worked at Cell Star Corp. as a warehouse supervisor and his hobbies included golf (with a handicap of 9) watching football and TV Land.
Donations may be made to the Multiple Sclerosis Society and the family requests prayers for a cure.
You are truly missed Mikey!
