Jeff Herrington, 58, of Etowah passed away Tuesday, January 18, 2022 at his residence. He was a son of the late James and Shelvy Herrington. He was also preceded in death by his daughter, Brandee Herrington; brother, Patrick Herrington and his aunt and uncle, Marie and Frank Fork.
Jeff spent the majority of his life in Florida, and had moved to Henderson County 5 years ago. He loved coaching his children in basketball, softball and baseball when they were younger. This led to him becoming an umpire himself for both High School and College softball, which he enjoyed immensely. He could often be found helping his neighbors with tasks around their home and enjoyed live music and touring different breweries. His favorite thing to do was spend time with his family.
He is survived by his loving wife of 36 years, Virginia Herrington; children, Jeff (J.T.) Herrington and Carissa Herrington; grandson, Braeden Herrington; sister-in-law, Josie Menkhus; niece, Hailey (Caleb) Menkhus; mother and father-in-law, Virginia and Pepe Laurenti; cousins, Maggie Ingle and Kathy Ponder.
A celebration of life will be held at 1pm on Monday, January 24, 2022 at Shuler Funeral Home for family and friends.
