Herbert “Herb” Fieberling passed away on October 14, 2019, at the age of 82. He was born on February 21, 1937, in Kassel, Germany, to Heinrich and Hildegard (Jakobi) Fieberling. He and his family immigrated to St Louis, Missouri, in the 1950s. There he finished high school, started college and was drafted into the US Army. The army sent him back to Europe to a base in France. After his discharge, he returned to St Louis where he met his wife Theresia at a dance. They were soon married, and his job took them to Colorado Springs.
His job eventually took him to Denver, Munich, back to Denver, on to Detroit, and then Minneapolis. That’s when he had enough and decided to retire at the age of 59.
They returned to Colorado Springs in 1992 where Herb and Theresia built a house and enjoyed retirement. This included annual vacations to the beach, dancing, and generally enjoying everything life had to offer.
He was President of the Austrian-American Enzian club. He loved a good laugh and a cold beer.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his wife. He is survived by his children, Edward Fieberling and Susan (husband John) Anderson, all of Aurora, Colorado.
