Bill Herbert

Now retired, Bill Herbert’s career was devoted to academic medicine, teaching at UNC, Duke, and UVA, with about 10 years at each institution. He and Marsha moved from Duke/Chapel Hill to Charlottesville in early 2000 when he was named Chair of the Dept of Ob/Gyn at UVA. A lifelong Episcopalian, Bill and Marsha attended several Episcopal parishes here until settling into Christ Episcopal about 10 years ago. Bill and Marsha appreciate and enjoy all elements of our parish, and they “have been happier” at CEC than in all their past churches. They have two grown sons, both married, and both with two children. The age range of their four grandchildren is from 5-13 years old. The closer family lives in LA; the other in Abu Dhabi — travel to/with family is a priority for them. Bill is active in our Men’s Bible Study and in our Prison Ministry. They regularly attend the 900 am service. In addition to CEC, Bill and Marsha enjoy our C’ville community and UVA (especially sports). The question most frequently asked of them is which ACC team they support the most: the answer is UVA!
