“It’s never right to do wrong – even to get a chance to do right.”

 

“Tarry in Jericho until your beards be grown”

 

“I’m going to write a book, Humility and How I Attained It.”

 

“Lie on, I like it.”

 

“There are three stages in a man’s life: Young, Middle age, and ‘You’re looking good.’”

 

– Not all may have been Herron’s originally, 

he is the one several of us associate with them.

 

Steve Douglas Herron, known to peers as “Steve,” to others as “S. D.” to a few as “Doctor,” but to many more as “Bro. Herron” died this date, 2/25/1994, at Charlotte, NC.

He was born 6/19/1917, at West Blockton, AL.  He received his Bachelors at Central Wesleyan College and his M.A. at Bob Jones University. His marriage to Dorothy Hammett was blessed with one daughter, Jane Herron Boxx, M.D.

Herron founded Hobe Sound Bible College in 1960, at Hobe Sound Florida.  He also founded WEAA (Wesleyan Education Association of America), the educational arm of IHC (Interchurch Holiness Convention) about 1972.  

His thoughtful and straight preaching blessed many a camp and convention platform in mid-century. He is gone but he is not forgotten – bless his memory.
