---- — Herbert G. Moorman, 49, of Centerville, passed away Saturday, Aug. 31, 2013 at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Herbert was born on Dec. 16, 1963 in Gardner, Kansas to Eugene and Barbara (Vestal) Moorman. Herbert worked in the heating and cooling business installing and repairing boilers for Rasmussen Heating & Cooling in Council Bluffs. In Centerville he worked for Moorman Custom Cabinets.

Herbert was a jack of all trades who could fix anything. He was also a people person. Herbert never met a stranger and was accused of being quite the talker. He enjoyed fishing, hunting and time with his friends and family. On Sunday afternoons he enjoyed cooking a spread of food to watch football or NASCAR.

Herbert is survived by his father Eugene Moorman of Allerton; a longtime friend, Janet, of Centerville; three children, Steven (Holly) Banks of Oskaloosa, Echo Moorman of Washington state and Zach (Lauren) Moorman of Washington state; two grandchildren, Connor Winfrey of Washington state and Caroline Moorman of Washington state; three siblings, Ronald L. Moorman of Allerton, Debra Haines (Ken Richards) of Moravia and Terry R. Moorman of Des Moines; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Herbert was preceded in death by his mother, Barbara Moorman; two grandchildren, Christopher and Zakk Bankes; two brothers, Rudolph and Kenneth Moorman; grandparents; and his "Dude Buddies," Joseph and Nicholas.

A celebration of life service will be held at 7 p.m., Friday, Sept. 6 at Thomas Funeral Home with the Rev. Tony Angran officiating. Visitation will be one hour prior from 6-7 p.m. at Thomas Funeral Home.
