Oct 20 1916 - Sep 24 2010

Edward C. Herro (Ed), 93, died September 24, 2010 at Bay Brooke Rehab Center in McKinney, Texas. Mr. Herro was born on October 20, 1916 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was the youngest of five children. On April 12, 1941, he married Dorothy Moroney, the love of his life until the day he died almost 70 years later. His loving wife, Dorothy and three children survive him: Charles, Jackson Hole, Wyoming; Ronald (Diane), Westminster, Colorado; and Eileen (Rick) Tredinnick, McKinney Texas. Seven grandchildren and nine great grandchildren further survive him. He has also been blessed with three nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers Fred, George, Joe, and Mike. He enjoyed a long career in industrial vocations that started with International Harvester as a machinist and progressed through time study engineering and ultimately culminated his career as Plant Manager of General Castings in Waukesha, Wisconsin. He and his family moved from Milwaukee to New Berlin, Wisconsin and then to Brookfield, Wisconsin. When the kids finally left the house, he and Dorothy moved to the “good life” in Sun City Arizona where they thoroughly enjoyed retirement. Due to declining health, Ed and Dorothy moved to McKinney, Texas where their daughter and her family provided them with care and companionship. Ed was active in the Lion’s Club for decades and ultimately became the club president. He loved the camaraderie in the club and the service they provided to the community. However his greatest love was reserved for his wife Dorothy and for his family. He dedicated all of his energy and commitment to providing for their health and happiness. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:00 a.m.. Tuesday, September 28, 2010 at St. Gabriel the Archangel Catholic Church, McKinney, Texas.
