SD Achieve Remembers Co-Worker Killed In Fatal Crash

SD Achieve Remembers Co-Worker Killed In Fatal Crash
Gary Herll


Authorities have released the name of the man killed in last week's crash as he was walking across Sycamore Avenue Friday morning.

He's 43-year-old Gary Herll of Sioux Falls. Herll worked for South Dakota Achieve for more than 20 years and on Monday co-workers are remembering him as a man who told you like it is.

While the crash is still under investigation, those who worked with Herll are remembering a hard working man who took pride in everything he did.

"He was just a wonderful guy, everyone here liked him, he knew everyone's name and I think that's one of the things that really stands out in my mind about Gary," South Dakota Achieve Vice President of Residential Services Jean Crowe said.

Crowe says Herll held several jobs while at South Dakota Achieve in his 23 years of working there. Crowe says the burly man had a heart of gold and took each job seriously.

"What I'm personally going to miss about Gary is the way he'd come into my office and let me know if something needed my attention. He would have all of his facts together. He'd let me know what he thought should change," Crowe said.

Herll was a big sports fan, who liked the Vikings, the Twins and the Stampede. Crowe says not only did South Dakota Achieve lose a good worker, more importantly they also lost a close friend.

"Everyone here is going to miss him. He was a wonderful man. Our hearts go out to his family. I know this has been a real tragedy for them," Crowe said.

Police say no charges have been filed against the driver at this time.
