LABBIE, HERBERT GEORGE: Passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 12th while holding the hand of his “only acknowledged” child. He was a funny, intellectually curious, and a kind gentleman. Herb studied biophysics and chemistry undergrad at the University of Pittsburgh and then went to Pitt Law School. Over the course of his life, Herb was a medical researcher, personal injury lawyer, medical expert witness, money manager and Certified Market Technician. He enjoyed writing a newsletter for institutions about the stock market and economy. Herb was proud to have correctly predicted the market crash of 1987 in his newsletter, Technical Portfolio Strategies, and saving his client’s money. He was a voracious reader; at one point perusing nine newspapers from around the world every day. Also a bibliophile, Herb especially loved The Joys of Yiddish. Herb was a loving and devoted son, brother, uncle, husband to the late Martha K. Labbie, and father. He is survived by his daughter Barbra Lee Labbie and son-in-law Robert E. Bowman, nephews Jay B. Herman, Rick Steinweg, Bernd, Reiner and Peter Dankelman and nieces Beryl (Jonathan) Rosenberg, Blanche Bianca (Steinweg) Whiting, Brigitte (Schodel) Hemmerle, Sigrid (Schodel) Joswiak, many much loved grandnieces and nephews, in-law Mary Bowman, sisters-in-law Elisabeth Steinweg and Gertrude Schodel as well as dear friends such as Robert Cohen and Bill Simon.
