Mr. Hertzog answered his country’s call, enlisting in the United States Coast Guard in 1940. He also enlisted in the Air Force Reserves and proudly served during World War II and the Korean War. He was honorably discharged in 1945 and later employed by CBS in 1953 where he enjoyed a career that spanned more than 50 years before his retirement.

Besides his parents, Thomas was predeceased by his wife, Polly Walters Hertzog in 1994 and his siblings, Elizabeth, Margaret, Harry, Lewis, Charles, Mildred and John.
Please honor Thomas by loving graciously, living earnestly, forgiving easily, and laughing loudly. Be nice to each other; that’s what he would want. Visitation will be held at the Nicholas F.

We are sorry for your recent loss. Thomas was always encouraging and helped many people. The death of a loved one is difficult, continue to lean on God, friends and family. God will always give you comfort, as found in the Bible at (2Cor 1:3-4). He will soon take away death (1Cor 15:26), and he will soon return our loved ones by way of the resurrection (John 5:28-29).
Please search the article “When someone you love dies”, at JW.org it greatly helped us through a difficult time and we hope it can help you to gain some comfort.
