Obituary for Herbert Hoover

Bloomington, Indiana - Herbert Wylie Hoover peacefully passed away on March 12, 2018. He was surrounded by love and family. Born in Columbus, Indiana, Herb was a proud Hoosier and father, who had a positive and humorous outlook on life.

Herb was an active member in his community. Growing up in Columbus, he was an Eagle Scout and senior counselor at Gnaw Bone Camp. He attended Depauw University were he graduated with a BS in Biology while making fond and amusing memories of being the president of Phi Kappa Psi. After graduating, he joined the Peace Corps and traveled to Sierra Leone, Africa to build hydrofarms and to teach communities about aquaculture.

Herb attended Indiana University where he earned a Master's of Science in SPEA and met his former wife of 25 years, Catherine Greene. Together they had two children - Holly Greene Hoover and Scott Wylie Hoover. He was a devoted father and unconditionally supported all of his children’s projects.

Herb was a believer of protecting Indiana forest land. He was an encouraging member of Sycamore Land Trust and hosted local school groups to discover a love for nature and the outdoors. Additionally, he was a founding member of the Board of Directors of Gnaw Bone Camp Nature Preserve, helping to preserve hundreds of forestland acres. Herb was also the President of East Monroe Water Corporation.

Later in life he became a traveler, enjoying Sydney, Puerto Rico and Alaska just to name a few. Wherever he was, he religiously listened to Reggae Children on WFHB!

Herb’s Celebration of Life will be on Sunday, April 8th at 4:00 PM at FARMbloomington at 108 E. Kirkwood Ave. Come to celebrate a great man and with an appetite!

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Boy Scout Troop 110 of Unionville % Robin Green 4741 N. Benton Dr. Bloomington, IN 47408.
