H. Kelly Herrington was born on February 26, 1962, in Mateo, California, to Lillian Mattos Herrington and Harold Dawson Herrington.  On January 1, 1983, he married Cynthia Waller. He was a graduate from Texas A&M University. Kelly lived in Thicket for the past twenty-two years where he spent much of his time outside enjoying nature.

Kelly passed away on March 18, 2017, while working on his land. He was fifty-five years old at the time of his passing. In reference to Kelly’s passing, a family member said, “I loved how his smile reached his eyes. He really had the best smile of them all.” Another family member said “We may not have talked to each other for months, but I knew he was there. He was always just a phone call away and would do whatever he could to help me.” Kelly will be deeply missed by many, for his smile, his willingness to lend a helping hand, among many other things.
