Mr. Herbert Tolar Hulsey, 82, a resident of Waynesboro, MS, passed from this life surrounded by family and friends on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 at Pine View Health and Rehabilitation Center in Waynesboro.

He leaves 6 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren, and a host of nieces and nephews.


In his early years, Herbert enjoyed hunting and fishing, playing softball, basketball, dominoes, and card games. He was full of witty mischief and was never in short supply of a good joke. Herbert made his living in the auto parts industry as owner and operator of Automotive Supply. He was a volunteer at Wayne County Volunteer Fire Department and React Search and Rescue. Herbert also donated his time coaching Dixie Youth Baseball where he was a proud All-Star coach. In his 58 years as a member of Calvary Baptist Church he served as deacon, taught boys Sunday School, and served on various committees.
