Herbert Marshall Easton

Herbert Marshall Easton, 70, of Front Royal, Virginia passed away on Wednesday, July 29, 2020 at Warren Memorial Hospital.

A Memorial service will be held for Herbert at Maddox Funeral Home 105 W Main St. in Front Royal at 10 A.M. on Thursday, August 6, 2020 with Sammy Campbell officiating.

Herbert was born on December 19, 1949 to the late Jack Marshall and Alta Vernell Easton. He was very close with his parents especially his mom. He is also preceded by his brother, Charles Henry Easton; and his grandparents.

Herbert served in the United states Marine Corps for over 25 years and served two separate tours in Vietnam. He was a member of the Civil Service for numerous years and met many close friends throughout his life. Herbert was the type of person to never lose touch with any of his friends, and would reach out on a whim just to see how you were doing. For a time he lived with his grandmother to help her through many hard times. He was an athlete and a sports enthusiast throughout his life and followed the Washington Redskins very closely. He spent a great amount of his downtime hunting and fishing.

Surviving Herbert is his loving wife Sue Easton; his daughters Donna Easton and Terry Chunn; his siblings, Bernie Easton, Mary Helen Anderson, Robert Alan Easton, Lola Jenkins and Barbara Easton; his grandchildren, Alexzia Easton, Branden Klingenberg, Brooklyn Chunn, Aaliyah Chunn and Asia Chunn; and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to St. Judes Childrens Hospital.

    Sue, Herbert will be so missed by anyone that ever knew him. To know him is to love him. After knowing Herbie for 45 years, he was a brother to me. Our heart aches for your and your family. Wilda & I will always be there for you to assist you and comfort you. Herbie is with the Lord and in peace for all eternity, until you & him meet once more and again be joined for eternity. God bless you and keep you safe.

    Dear Sue and Family,
    I had the privilege and HONOR to serve (USMCR) with Herb and remain in touch. We talked even this year though living far apart and both retired. He had a great sense of humor , cared for his fellow Marines and was one I could always count on to accomplish his mission. Sue I know having walked where you are now that it seems like the Storm is so Strong but know that Herb as a believer is on the calm clear ski side now. It is called Heaven. Our Lord will calm the way for you in these times ahead. You are not alone and Herb is always near too. Keep the faith Sue.
    RIP Herbie
    Semper Fidelis

    I was very sad to hear about Herb passing and I will miss him. My prayers are with the family and friends for the strength and understanding to make it through this hard time and my blessings for the memories I have being able to know him. I would like to pass along a challenge that my Pastor gave to me after both of my wife’s parents passed away. He said I cannot change the world but I can change the world around me. Knowing Herb he lived that way and it showed by the way he treated his family and friends with so much caring and love (with a little anger mixed in when we needed it) Rest in piece my friend you will be missed

    Sue – I served with Herb many years ago. He was a funny, kind, gentle soul. And I am grateful to have worked alongside him. God bless you and your family. Be strong.

    Herbert was my friend and I loved him. We were what my Mother called “cradle friends” as our parents were friends when they were young too. I will forever miss him but we can rest in the knowledge that we will see him again.
