Read more about the life story of Herbert and share your memory.
Herbert Heinrich Frobenius, passed away peacefully on August 30, 2023, in Sherwood, Maryland, surrounded by his loving family.
Herbert was a devoted husband and father, survived by his wife Heidi, their sons Gary and Kirk, and their daughter Heidi. He cherished his role as “Opi” to his many adoring grandchildren.
A proud direct descendant of the famed Renaissance printer Johann Froben, Herbert was born on January 4, 1940, in Gottingen, Niederachsen, Germany. After joining the United States Army and serving as a military policeman, Herbert moved to the United States with his beloved wife, Heidi Bartel Frobenius, in the early 1960s.
From raising pigeons when he was a young boy, to owning and caring for horses with Heidi and their children, Herbert always had a fondness for animals. He developed a profound passion for German Shepherd dogs and greatly enjoyed breeding and caring for them. He found joy in returning to Germany on occasion to have his German Shepherds trained and to visit with family and old friends. Herbert was also an avid hunter and fisherman, and passed this enthusiasm on to his children and grandchildren.
One of Herbert’s favorite pastimes was watching old Western films. He enjoyed Westerns so much so, that his eldest son was named after actor Gary Cooper.
In his professional life, Herbert earned his CPA license and co-founded a successful accounting firm located first in Waldorf, Maryland, then in Greenbelt, Maryland, serving loyal clients for many years.
In his later years, Herbert faced health challenges which reduced his mobility, and his loving wife Heidi cared for him with unwavering dedication during this time.
Herbert Heinrich Frobenius will be fondly remembered by his family. His legacy lives on through his descendants. “Opi” will be deeply missed but forever in our hearts.
