Born Nov. 11,1952

David Paul Herbig was a caring husband, father, brother, friend and boss. He left this world inspiring those around him to always seek a life filled with love and adventure.

David was born on Nov. 11, 1952 to Mary Lou and James Herbig in their hometown of Dayton, Ohio. Always a wild soul, it took David some time to find his passion following high school, but the day he discovered flying would change his life forever.

David pursued a career as a pilot flying helicopters from Hawaii to Alaska. His career path brought him to Skagway, Alaska where David would plant his roots and spend the next 30 years building a family, a home and a growing business doing what he loved.

David is survived by his wife Maria, daughter Emily, son Nathaniel, his brother James Herbig and a long list of friends who will miss him dearly.
