George Henry Lee Herron
George Henry Lee Charlie Brown Herron, age 76, of Newark, Delaware, passed away on Sunday, September 21, 2014 in the comfort of his home surrounded by his loving family.
Born on April 25, 1938 in Brownsville, PA, he was the son of the late Anna L. Herron and Lee Herron. He was preceded in death by his brother, Robert Herron.
Lee attended California High School in California, Pennsylvania and later attended Cleveland State College in Ohio. He then enlisted in the Army Reserves.
Lee worked for Cleveland Frog and Crossing Company in Ohio and in 1975 relocated to Delaware where he worked for Pettibone as regional manager. He later started his own company, Herron R.O.I. Supply.
Lee absolutely loved swimming in his pool and spending time with his four grandchildren. He enjoyed watching football and his family is curious to see how the Eagles will perform without Lee yelling at them through the television.
