A son of the Greatest Generation, Mr. Earnshaw lived a full and active life representing the very best attributes of that generation. It was a pleasure to get to know him over the years at our annual June WW II event at the American Military Heritage Museum in Stephens City. Mr. Earnshaw returned each year. Mr. Earnshaw was very proud of his accomplishments and those of his generation. We will miss you will deeply miss Mr. Earnshaw.

I met Herb at a pancake breakfast and befriended him on the spot. He was a great leader in every aspect of his life! His stories of the War and his X-ray machine turned printer were amazing! His stories of how he met his wife and the full life they had were truly inspiring! His warmth and strength of character and kindness were evident to everyone who knew him. I was blessed to be his friend and hear his quartet sing. I was blessed to escort him to oyster dinners at the fire stations in our area. My family took him to a close friend’s Thanksgiving dinner party. We had him over for tea and made painted crafts at Christmastime. We took a drive up to a mountain side with geoglyphs carved into the rocks over ten thousand years old. We played Chinese Checkers together and did cross word puzzles and sang songs. He read me his adventure stories and told me about his days working in the prisons. He shared about his wife and their son who passed away. He listened well - he was a great listener. We talked about love and life and God and heaven. He told me the stories behind the pictures and collectibles in his sitting room. I baked him pies and cakes and brought him soups. One cake in particular was a disaster but he was kind. He fixed a table and a chair of mine and loaned me paint brushes for a church project. I’m proud of how he lived his life and very grateful to have been his friend. I’ll see him in Heaven one day and rejoice!

Had no idea Dr. Earnshaw was such an adventurer because he was such a quiet man. He volunteered at Free Clinic for a number of years in our dental clinic when I was the director. I always greatly appreciated his service. Please accept my sincere sympathy for your loss.
