North Monmouth- Carroll (Herb) Marin (81) of North Monmouth passed away at his home on December 6th, 2023. Herb, the son of Ethel Marin was born on November 02, 1942. He was one of eight children, was father to Michelle Marin, and like a father to his best friend and caretaker, Clint Croxford.

Along with many houses, motorhomes, and Corvettes, he also owned Smithfield Auction, The Coop (a BYOB dance hall), and Herb’s Auto.\n\nFor those privileged enough to know Herb, they knew he was a Harley man and loved a good adventure. Those adventures lead him all over the U.S (with the goal of visiting all fifty states) and parts of Europe. In his travels, he attended Woodstock, met Jay Leno, and had many fun excursions with is daughter, family, and friends.\n\nHerb was always the life of the party. He would tell people “Walk in like you own the place” and he did just that. He endured a lot in his life, and it pushed him to enjoy every moment whether it be on his bike or playing a few cutthroat games of cribbage with whoever walked through his door that day. Herb pushed everyone to be their best and was always there for anyone that needed him.\n\nHis motto… “It’s been a good ride.”\n\nHerb was predeceased by Ethel and Allen (brother) Marin\n\nHe is survived by his daughter Michelle, of Farmington, CT, his remaining six siblings, and Clint.\n\nFamily and close friends hosted a celebration of life in his honor… “Herbie” style.\n\nArrangements were handled by Roberts Funeral Home, 62 Bowdoin Street, Winthrop where condolences and memories may be shared with the family on the obituary page of the funeral home website by visiting www.khrfuneralhomes.com.
