Herb Mayr was an exceptional brother of rare humor, high intelligence (a science wiz), tenacity, faith, and athleticism. One classic story of Herb was a unique fundraising technique of his, in which he would enter a bar and although no more than five feet tall, he would declare that he could kick a dollar bill off of the top edge of a door, which he would then have a tall person place on the top edge of an open door. People would laugh and agree to buy his roses if could accomplish his impossible boast. Extraordinarily athletic and much slimmer than in his later years, Herb would leap high in the air and use a martial arts sweep kick (he was a trained martial artist) to nip the bill off the door top. The crowd would roar and Herb would sell out. Herb was a man of faith, a devoted husband, loving dad, brother and much more.
Herb was raised Catholic, attending Loyola University when he met and joined the Unification Movement in 1974 after responding to a Unificationist newspaper add entitled “Would You Like To Work For World Peace?” Herb fundraised on MFT and worked in CARP until 1977 when he was called to attend UTS Seminary from which he would graduate in 1979 in the 3rd graduating class. Thereafter, Herb worked in Ocean Church, Paragon House Publishers, and traveled the world as a leader in the Youth Seminar on World Religions.
Herb worked very hard to support his family, church, and world, persevering through much to conclude his earthly journey.
