Memory

Herbert Warren Proffitt

July 20, 1941 – December 24, 2023

Herbert Warren Proffitt, age 82, peacefully passed away on December 24, 2023. His high school sweetheart and devoted wife of 63 years, Norma, preceded him in death earlier this year. He is survived by his daughters, Julia Page Proffitt (widow of Terry O’Gorman) of Galway, Ireland, and Susan Proffitt McKelvey and her husband, Brian McKelvey of Calabash, North Carolina; his cherished grandchildren, Victoria McKelvey, Daniel McKelvey, and Oscar O’Gorman; his brothers, Jerry Proffitt (Linda) and Wayne Proffitt (Rosie); and his sister-in-law, Barbara Shearin Garbett; as well as nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Herb remained actively engaged in his woodworking and carpentry career, doing what he loved up until the time of his passing. An avid enthusiast of golf and socializing, Herb found joy in the camaraderie of friends, meeting them for breakfast and lunch two to three times per week. His dedication to his passions was a testament to his vibrant spirit.

During this challenging time, friends and family have shown incredible kindness and generosity, offering delicious food and heartwarming visits. The outpouring of support is deeply appreciated, and we are grateful to everyone who has shared in our grief.

In celebration of Herb’s life, a funeral service will be held at Noon on Friday, January 5, 2024, at Mount Vernon Baptist Church, 11220 Nuckols Rd, Glen Allen, VA 23059. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at 11 AM. Interment will be private.
