ORGILL, Herbert D.B. - November 8, 1921-February 15, 2014. In Peterborough, of pneumonia, beloved husband of Norma (nee Perry) for 66 years. Loving father of Peter (Sara), Sheila Britton, Janet, (Tam) Matthews. Grandfather to Sarah, (Mikkel), Geoffrey, Ainsley, Trevor, and Alison, great Grandfather to Finn. Herb was born in Jamaica and grew up in Toronto where he attended St. Andrew's College and the University of Toronto. After serving in the R.C.A.F., his ancestry drew him to Bobcaygeon to live in the family summer home where he built a successful summer resort and developed lakefront property. He treasured life with his family, gardening, photography, and boating in the Kawartha Lakes. He played a great game of tennis and golf in the summer in Bobcaygeon and each winter, in the little town of Mount Dora, Florida. Herb will be remembered by many, as kind and polite, the consummate gentleman. He will be greatly missed by friends and family. There will be a private family service, and his ashes will be interred in the family plot in Little Lake Cemetery in Peterborough. The family extend their sincere thanks for his excellent care at St. Joseph's at Fleming. If desired, donations to the Alzheimer's Society and the CNIB would be greatly appreciated.
Herb was such a fine person and so kind myself and my family.
Bob Walker, Bobcaygeon.
I am very sorry to hear of your father's passing. He was a fine man who raised a very fine man. Thinking of you and hoping that the pain of your loss is eased by the celebration of a life well lived. All the best Doug Hayes
