Herbert A. Soper passed peacefully from this earth on July 2, 2017, at the age of 87. He was born in Pittsburgh, PA, on June 14, 1930, and spent his formative years in Pittsburgh, PA, and Syracuse, NY. He was a graduate of Syracuse University, served honorably in the US Army, and spent a long career as a Aerospace Mechanical Engineer. His professional life was highlighted by his work with NASA, in the creation of gyroscopes for the Mercury and Apollo spacecrafts. A resident of New Smyrna Beach, Herb is survived by his son Jeff and daughter-in-law Judy, of New Smyrna Beach, Grandsons, Kyle and Rick, as well as sisters Sally Thoe, of Alma, MI, and Elaine Marshall, of Clarksville, GA.. He was pre-deceased in death, by his parents Herbert SR., and Adelaide, as well as his son, Steve.  Arrangements are under the care of Baldwin Brothers (1 North Causeway) in New Smyrna Beach. A Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be held on Saturday July 8th, at 2 PM. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider a donation in Herb’s name, to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).

    Dear Jeff, Judy and family. We are very sorry to learn of Herb's passing. Jeff, our son Jeff talked to you. We live next door to Herb and had talked with you one time. We are up north now for the summer. We really liked Herb. He was always smiling. Bob got his newspaper this past winter and put it in his entryway, so he didn't have to come out on his driveway and chance on falling! I sent some food over at times. He was always so appreciative of the little things you would do for him. We will miss him, as I'm sure you all will. Our love, Bob & Sally - 2275 Hawks Cove Circle
