William 'Herb' Sangster passed on Wednesday, March 22, 2017, at Bay Medical Hospital in Panama City, Florida, just nine days after celebrating his 50th birthday.

Herb was born in Calhoun County, Florida on March 13, 1967 to James and Linda (Muck) Sangster. Herb moved with his family to Iowa where he spent much of his life and raised four boys of his own; William "Lee" Sangster, Ryan "Jake" Sangster, Ray "Fuzzy" Sangster, and Greggory "Vann" Sangster. Herb missed the Florida weather and decided to move back roughly two years ago.

Herb was a passionate man about many things; one of these things included cars. For many years, Herb did mechanical work on cars and worked as a cars sales representative for various companies, including himself. Throughout the years, Herb also collected many of his favorite cars including a 56 Mercury. Another passion of Herbs was diet coke; he would drink diet coke from sun up to sun down and often took a case with him wherever he went. Lastly, but not certainly not least, his passion for his sons. He enjoyed teaching them about cars, how to drive cars, and how to enjoy the small things in life.

Herb was preceded in death by his parents, James and Linda. He is survived by his four sons: Lee, Jake, Ray, and Vann; four grandsons, Jackson, Aaron, Kobe, and Kinsler; brother, James Sangster; sister, Melinda Summerlin; nephew, Bryan; as well as aunts, uncles and many cousins in Iowa and Florida.

There will be a Celebration of Life in memory of Herb for family and friends at Four Mile Community Center (3711 Easton Blvd., DSM, IA 50317) from Noon to 3pm on Saturday, April 22, 2017.
