Herbert Wade Dailey, 86, began his final journey home on Friday, March 22, 2019 while in the care of the Beckett House of New Concord. He was born on November 26, 1932 at home in Norwich, Ohio to Russell E. and Mabel E. (Cubbison) Dailey.

He belonged to the Norwich United Methodist Church, the Guernsey County Old Car Club, and the United Electrical Workers Union. He enjoyed gardening and Bee Keeping, and loved old cars, including his 1956 Chevy. He also loved to travel, often going to many places just to see family, friends, and old army buddies along the way. Herb enjoyed attending Karaoke on Fridays and Saturdays, but he really loved food, especially desserts, with ice cream being his favorite.
