David Whitman Hebert

March 26, 1957 - December 22, 2019

David Whitman Hebert died on December 22, 2019 surrounded by his family in McKinney Texas. He was was born in New Orleans on March 26, 1957 to Sylvia T and Whitman A. Hebert. He graduated from Stuart Prep and Electronics Technical School. His 43 year telecom career began with Radiofone and ended with American Tower Corporation. 

David’s diagnosis of ALS in April was a test of his strength, courage and determination. He would not let ALS define him and only confided in very close family and friends. David learned not to focus on his physical limitations, but on all the blessings in his life. His faith in God was unwavering. He never doubted he would take care of him even in his most difficult times. 

His zest for life included his family, gardening, hunting, outdoors, LSU and Saints.   He was an inspiration to all those who knew him. He knew no strangers. 

David is survived by his devoted wife of 29 years, Mary Ann Hebert; his loving parents, Sylvia and Whitman Hebert; bonus father to his stepchildren, Rickey Glancey, Jr. and wife, Vanessa and Daniel and Justin Underwood; grandson, Rickey Glancey, III; sister Karen Spangler and husband, David; brother, Phillip Hebert and wife, Toby; paran/uncle to Daniel Schwab and wife, Via and a host of other relatives. 

A catholic mass will be held at 10:00 a.m., Monday, January 13, 2020 at St. Gabriel the Archangel Catholic Church Chapel, 110 St Gabriel Way, McKinney, Texas 75071. The family will receive friends during a visitation on Monday morning at 9:30 a.m. at the church prior to the mass.
