Herbert Duhl, Jr.

January 20, 1974 — September 3, 2016

Herbert 'Herb' Lee Duhl, Jr., 42, of Ewing, passed away unexpectedly early Saturday morning, September 3, 2016. He was born on January 20, 1974 in Gallipolis, OH, a son of Cynthia A. Christian Duhl of Ewing and the late Herbert Lee Duhl, Sr. Herb was raised in Jackson County, OH, and spent the last six years in Kentucky.

His life was wrapped around his wife, his kids, and his family. Herbie was a master craftsman of labor and love. He specialized in building decks and laying tile. His work was his passion and he took pride in everything he built. He loved God, his country, the outdoors, hunting, and he loved talking politics with people (and Herbie would say 'Go Trump'). He also enjoyed cooking, and BB-Q's. His good friend Jim Topolski, who worked with Herbie, said, 'Herbie leaves behind a legacy of love and pride in his life, his family, and his work. Herbie has touched many lives in the time he had here on Earth'.

Besides his mother, he is survived by: his wife of 13 years, Tonya Duhl; his daughters, Karissa Izzabell 'Izzy' Grace Duhl, and Leah Janell Duhl; his brother and best friend, Christopher Duhl (Harley Carroll and her son James) of Ewing; two sisters, Sandra Lee Duhl Wolford of Ewing, and Alicia Ann Duhl Wolford of Murfeesboro, TN; paternal grandmother, Shirley Duhl of West Junction, OH; and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews of too many to mention. He is also survived by his father-in-law, Bob Jeffries of Hamden, OH. Not only was Herbie a son-in-law to Bob, but they were very close friends. Outside the family, Herbie leaves behind a very close friend of many years, Tom Nichols of Jackson, OH, and a host of numerous friends. Besides his father, Herbert L. Duhl, Sr.,whom he loved very much, Herbie was preceded in death by: maternal grandmother, Nancy E. Christian Davis; three grandfathers, Mahlon Harlow Christian, Calvin Davis, and Herbert hoover Duhl, as well as many other loved ones.
