Robert C. Herrick

Herrick, Robert C. of Boynton Beach, Florida and formerly of Weymouth, passed away on June 25, 2024. He was 85.

Those who knew Robert will remember him as a gentle and generous soul, always ready with a kind word and a thoughtful gesture. His legacy is one of love, kindness, and the joy he found in the simple pleasures of life.
