Anson Boulton Herrick Jr., who lived in East Hampton for 35 years, died after a short illness on Saturday in Southold, surrounded by his family.
Known as Bo, Mr. Herrick was raised in Englewood, N.J., and began spending summers in Amagansett in 1940. He and his wife, the former Mary Lou Crandall, came to live in East Hampton in 1985 and moved to Southold last year.
Mr. Herrick was a veteran of the Coast Guard, in which he served from 1958 to 1962. He then worked in the marine and auto industries, including the Peter Glennon dealership in Southampton, now Southampton Buick.
After his retirement, Mr. Herrick was active with several organizations on the North Fork. At San Simeon by the Sound, a nursing home in Greenport, his horticultural talents were displayed in the gardens. He also was a member of the board of Greenport’s East End Seaport Maritime Museum.
Mr. Herrick is survived by his wife of 30 years, by his mother, Ruth Herrick, and two brothers, John Herrick and Lawrence Herrick. Four children, Daniel Herrick, Christopher Herrick, Deborah Stapon, and Leah Constantine, also survive, as do eight grandchildren. His father, Anson B. Herrick Sr., died before him, as did Gilbert Herrick, a brother.
A service to celebrate his life will be held at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Greenport on Dec. 2 at 11 a.m., with a reception following at the East End Seaport Maritime Museum on Third Street in Greenport. Donations have been suggested in Mr. Herrick’s memory to the East End Seaport Maritime Museum or San Simeon by the Sound.
