  • Note:
    Herb started out wanting to be a machinist, since this occupation was big in Beloit, especially with Fairbanks, Morse, & Co. being a major employer. All machinist's had to have tools. His tool box, used at work, and many tools are still in the family.
    In the mid 30's, Herb , Luella, and two kids moved to Janesville. At this time he switched
    occupations and started working in grocery stores. He became good at cutting meat, keeping vegetables fresh and well displayed, and keeping the store properly stocked. This resulted in him becoming a manager of one of Carr Bros Foodstores, located on Main Street in Janesville. This worked out good until Carr Bros. were bought out by Krogers. Herb did not like the big chain approach, which eliminated much of the personal touch he enjoyed in the past and added much more paperwork.
    Upon leaving Krogers, he started distributing Delicious potato chips. He increased their volume and was subsequently offered the distributor rights for Rock County by Blue Star Potato Chip Co. which he accepted. This being a larger distributorship than he could handle by himself, he offered his son-in-law, Al Timpany, a chance to go in business with him. H. & T. Distributors, Inc. was then formed and the business grew.
    After twenty years of distributing and becoming 67 years of age, Herb retired. H. & T. Distrib-
    utors, Inc. was sold at that time to Blue Star Potato Chip Company.

    When Herb's son John was discharged from the Air Force in 1956, he decided to buy his Dad and Mother a new car, as a token of thanks for putting him through college. As it turned out, there were three new Chevrolets bought at one time, since Al and Naola decided to buy also. They were all the same color, a special color of yellow and of green. One was a convertible, one a station wagon and the other a sedan. It was quite a sight to see them all parked together in the driveway. By the way, the 1956 Chevy, was Herb and Luellas first new car.
