Herbert grew up in Houston, Texas. He graduated from San Jacinto High School in Houston. Herbert then went on to welding and mechanic school. He was enlisted in the Army Reserves as a cook and medic. Herbert married Linda in Spring, Texas on April 8, 1971. Herbert loved watching car shows and going to classic car shows. He had a passion for anything with a motor. Herbert enjoyed working on cars. His pride and joy was restoring his 1964 GTO and Linda’s 1966 Chevelle. He loved his animals so much and his Sadie never left his side. He would drop anything for a friend or family, especially when it came to repairing a vehicle. He was our master mechanic and jack of all trades. He was a reserved man and was the quiet type, but he was also a man who spoke his mind and would tell you like it is. Herbert will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Herbert is survived by his wife, Linda Allum; daughter, Jennifer Allum and wife, Jean; sisters-in-law, Virginia Lee Duke and Lois Grimes and husband, Mike; grandchildren, Stephanie Rogers and husband, Kevin, Kristina Ladner and husband, Chris, J.D. Hilton and wife, Katlyne; 12 great-grandchildren; nephews, Michael Grimes and wife, Suzanne, Scott Grimes and wife, Stephanie; great-nieces and nephews, Lauren, Haylie, and Hayden.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Herbert and Garnet Allum, Sr.; daughter, Leigh Allum; and previous wife, Rebecca Lee Allum.
The Allum Family has suggested that those in attendance wear casual clothes to the visitation and service.
