Robert Ed Herde was born on June 27, 1958 in Alexandria, Louisiana. He departed from this life due to a terminal illness on Friday, September 11, 2020 in his home surrounded by family and friends.
Ed resided in the town of Poland, Louisana and was a graduate of Poland High School in the year of 1976. He then met the love of his life, Sonya Herde, and they spent 36 years together. Years after their prayers were answered and they had two beautiful daughters. Ed was known for telling the story of how God blessed him with his “3 girls” Sonya, Emily, and Sarah.
A large portion of his career was spent in the pest control field until a few years ago when he began delivering papers for The Town Talk. Ed received many compliments for going above and beyond when delivering papers, even driving up to their homes and personally placing the paper into the hands of his customers.
In Ed’s downtime, he enjoyed fishing, gardening, and watching LSU and Saints football games.
Ed is survived by his spouse Sonya, their two children, Emily Cummings and husband Danny and Sarah Ducote and husband Randall; grandchildren, Aubrey and Lily, brother Richard Herde and wife Sis; sisters, Jane Linzay and Peggy Arnold; as well as hosts of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. He was preceded in death by parents, Richard and Emma Lee Herde.
He will be deeply missed by friends, family, and all who knew him.
Funeral services will be held on Monday, September 14, 2020 at 12:00 PM at Riverview Baptist Church with burial following in Greenwood Memorial in Pineville, Louisiana. The visitation will be held at the church from 9:00 AM until the time of service.
Pallbearers honored to serve are Shane Linzay, Philip Linzay, Ryan Marcell, Jeff Herde, Richard Herde, and Danny Cummings.

We would run across each other on occasional early morning on the TT lot, him finishing a night, me starting a day. He would update me on his sisters and I would do same about mine and remind me to get that press started on time. RIP.
