Herbert Louis Godfrey

1/18/1946 to 2/27/2023

Herbert Louis Godfrey 77, of Jacksonville, Florida passed away peacefully on February 27, 2023 after a long battle with Dementia.
Herb was born on January 18, 1946 to Max and Vera Godfrey in Newark, New Jersey. Being one of four children, Herb shared fond memories of his parent’s confectionery shop and father’s taxi cab. In 1956, his family moved to Miami, Florida. Herb went on to enlist in the United States Army where he proudly served 3 years as a combat engineer. After a tour in Vietnam, Herb was honorably discharged in 1966.
Herb started his career with Delta Airlines and met his wife, Janice Macfie. They were married at Lake Fredrica on August 2, 1975. They built their first home together in Orlando, Florida where they started their family. Herb and Janice went on to have three children, Jillian, Graigory and Katie.
Herb climbed the company ladder at Delta Airlines in airport operations/management and retired after a successful career spanning 33 years. He spent most of his retirement golfing, being outdoors, and enjoying a cigar in the company of good friends.
Herb is survived by his three children, Jillian Boyett, Graigory Godfrey, and Katie Bullen. Herb is also survived by his sisters, Roberta and Laraine and brother, Thomas. His grandchildren include Addison, Mallory, Blake, and Chase.
Services will be held graveside at Palm Cemetery in Winter Park, Florida on March 6, 2023 at 11 AM. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Alzheimer’s Association (www.act.ALZ.org).

    Stephanie and I lived across the street for 13 years, until we moved to Italy in 2011. A great neighbor and friend, always there for you! We actually ran into Herb in January 2019 at Wicked Barley Brewery when we were back in town for a quick visit. RIP!
