Letter: One of many great losses

Editor, Gazette-Journal:

Dr. Don Reed Herring of Norman, Oklahoma, was a natural leader. He was born June 11, 1933 to Donald and Pauline Reed Herring. He was a career officer in the U.S. Air Force, reaching the rank of lieutenant colonel, and flew combat missions in Vietnam before retiring from the military in 1973 and starting an auto detailing business.

His younger sister reminisced about him yesterday saying: “What made him extra special was his smile, one that always lit up everyone around him,” she said. He passed away on April 21 of coronavirus. He was 86, and the brother of Sen. Elizabeth Warren. She said of him yesterday: “I’ll miss you dearly, my brother.”
