Herbert Leon Hiett, age 92, entered into the presence of Christ on Sunday, May 30, 2021. He was born on August 7, 1928 to Katie Mae Hall and Edgar Allen Hiett. Music permeated every part of his life and was his best when he was in front of a keyboard. A musician since age 4, he played the pipe organ, keyboard, and piano. He also worked on and repaired those instruments. He attended Dayton Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio where music continued to be the center of his life. He was a member of Masonic Lodge #1274 of Dallas-Love Field.

I met Mr. Hiett a few times at family reunions and other family events. His love of family was evidenced during those occasions. I was impressed with his dedication to his piano students and work toward ensuring they had access to donated pianos.
