Obituary for James Wesley Herbert Jr.


James Wesley “Jimmy” Herbert Jr, entered into the gates of glory to be with our Lord, when he passed away in his North Hollywood, California Studio Apartment on Thursday, May 14, 2020. Born at Chestnut Hill Hospital, Philadelphia on May 30, 1985, he is the son of Dr. James Wesley Herbert and Laura Ida Barletta of North Wales, Pennsylvania. His mother Laura from Philadelphia, predeceased him July 16, 2004. Jimmy is mourned by his father, James Sr now of North Hollywood and beloved sisters, Kristen Lynn Herbert of Studio City, California and Kimberly Ann Sandor (Pete) of Allen, Texas as well as Laura Olivia Sandor, Giulian Joseph Sandor and Carina Elizabeth Sandor all of Allen, Texas. And he further mourned by many friends, extended family and colleagues.

An accomplished and highly respected personal trainer, most recently employed as a Master Trainer at 24 Hour Fitness in North Hollywood, he had worked and trained at other fitness clubs in East Norriton, North Wales, New Britain and Collegeville, Pennsylvania. Graduating from NPTI (National Personal Training Institute) in June 2011, Jimmy was certified in CPR, AED/First Aid Certification from Red Cross, Kettlebell and Nutrition.

His enlistment in the US Marine Corps with basic training at Parris Island, SC lasted only 3 months and holding a position of squad leader, he sustained a major injury to his right leg during military activities and eventually was unable to continue the program. Jimmy attended, on a trumpet scholarship, the Valley Forge Military academy for one year then returned to public school where he graduated from North Penn High School, Lansdale, PA in June 2003.

Following in part, his parents’ musical life, he studied and became an excellent trumpet player as well as pianist which was self-taught on his mother’s grand piano in North Wales. And proudly, he additionally excelled in soccer and baseball of our community. Jimmy was a member of Sanctuary United Methodist Church of North Wales where he sometimes played trumpet with his father and professional brass performers.

A memorial service is being held on Wednesday June 17, 2020 12:00 PM and is being handled by Angeleno Valley Mortuary with burial immediately following at Valhalla Memorial Park Cemetery, both of North Hollywood, California. Plans are being made so that Pastor Jim Carver of Sanctuary in North Wales will officiate via live stream into the West Coast, His family will arrange for this to also be seen on the East Coast at that time. Possibly, when the pandemic regulations ease at the end of the summer, there will be a memorial service for him at Sanctuary Church in North Wales so his friends may attend. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Sanctuary United Methodist Church, 1346 E Prospect Ave, North Wales, PA 19454
