AVENMARG HERBERT F. Passed away Friday, September 12, 2014 in his home on Torch Lake at the age of 85. Born August 10, 1929 in Detroit, Michigan to Fritz and Ernestine Avenmarg, he attended Detroit's Mackenzie High School, participated in ROTC and attended Ford Memorial Methodist Church where he met the love of his life, Neva Mary Carney at age 16. The two were married in September of 1950. Herb served his military service in Portland, Maine during the Korean War as a color guard member and pallbearer. He also ran the base movie projector and found a desire for photography. Herb had a passion for sailing and enjoyed many hours on Lake St. Clair. In 1956 Herb and Neva had their first child, daughter Patricia, and in 1957, their son Mark. In 1958, his mother died and a year later his father died. Herb started his career at Ford Motor Company in 1959. Herb also had a passion for flying and got his pilot's license in 1960. He shared a small plane for a few years. As a rising star at Ford, he was promoted quickly and was given the assignment of Body Resident engineer in Atlanta, Georgia. Herb and his family moved there in 1963 and thoroughly enjoyed almost seven years in the south where he discovered his passion for golf. His career continued upon his return to Michigan. Herb and Neva planned to retire on Torch Lake and to travel with a fifth wheel travel trailer during the winters. Devastatingly, Neva contracted a rare brain disease at age 53 and died at age 56 just prior to fulfilling their retirement dreams. Herb remarried, retired in 1991, moved to Torch Lake and enjoyed many years on the road with his fifth wheel travel trailer. Herb also served as the financial officer for Elk Rapids United Methodist Church for many years. Sadly, a diagnosis of Parkinson's and dementia brought an end to his travels, though he was able to enjoy many happy years living on Torch Lake. His second wife passed away in 2008. Herb is survived by his son Mark H. Avenmarg and his wife Fiona Stewart, and by his daughter Patricia Avenmarg O'Dell, her partner Shirley Leemaster, and son-in-law Skip O'Dell. Our family would like to thank the many caregivers who gave their love and compassion to Herb during his decline. We would not have been able to make Dad's days as peaceful and comfortable had it not been for their help. Memorial service will be held at Covell Funeral Home in Elk Rapids, Michigan on Saturday, September 20, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. Donations would be gratefully accepted in lieu of flowers, The Alzheimer's Association, P.O.
