Rev. Herbert S. Summers

Death Notice

SUMMERS, Rev. Herbert S. - It is with broken hearts that the family announces the death of Rev. Herbert S. Summers on October 18, 2019 at age 78. He is predeceased by his wife, Karen (1990). Loving father of Sandra (David Sleegers), Scott and Adam (Heather Cowx). Adored grandpa to Matthew (Jolene), Karen and Monica (Aron) Sleegers, Noah, Sophie, Emma, Mark, Nathan and Cole (Summers). Also survived by his brother Richard Summers of Windsor. Our family holidays and vacations will never be the same. Herb served at four congregations during his years as a minister from 1966 to 2019: Glenview and Louth United Churches in St. Catharines (1966-71), Highgate, Morpeth and Turin United Churches in Kent County (1971-83), Richards Memorial United Church in London (1983-2005) and most recently at Metropolitan United Church (2005-). He touched the lives of many people through his ministry and will be greatly missed. He had a passion for his family, his church, cruising and shopping (not necessarily in that order). Herb also loved flowers and we know he would appreciate being surrounded by them at this time. Visitation will be at Harris Funeral Home, 220 St. James Street at Richmond, London on Thursday from 7-9 p.m. and on Friday from 1-4 & 7-9 p.m. His funeral will be conducted at Metropolitan United Church, 468 Wellington Street at Dufferin, London on Saturday, October 26th at 10:30 a.m. with Rev. Dr. Jeff Crittenden officiating. Private family interment immediately following the service at Mount Pleasant Cemetery. Donations in memory of Herbert would be appreciated to The Heart and Stroke Foundation, Parkwood Palliative Care (sjhcfoundation.org) or Canadian Blood Services (give.blood.ca).
