Martinez, GA – Entered into rest on Friday, January 21, 2022, surrounded by family. Mr. James Thomas “Jimmy” Herzberg, 66, is the loving husband of 40 years to Rebecca Pileggi Herzberg. Jim is the son of the late Clifford and Audrey Herzberg. In addition to his wife, survivors include his children, Jennifer Herzberg Baker (Jay), John-Robert Herzberg, and grandson James Baker; his brother Joe Herzberg (Tina); and sisters Audrey Herzberg Findlay; and Barbara Herzberg Rowe, (Jeff).

Jim retired from the Kroger Company in 2013 after 33 years of service, serving as Zone Manager for the Augusta region. Jim enjoyed golfing, bowling, and he especially valued his time with his family. He had a charismatic personality, always positive, with a big smile and finding humor in all that he did. Jim put his positive outlook to work when having to battle Parkinson’s disease. Despite having to cope with challenging symptoms, Jim never once complained, and could somehow find a bright side when facing an array of debilitating conditions.
