Herb was born on April 6, 1942 in Compton, California. He was the second of three sons to Richard and Rosie Hart. Herb was raised in Los Angeles and graduated from Cathedral High School. Herb attended Los Angeles Trade Technical College where he received his degree in electrical engineering.  Herb was a Boy Scout and received the Silver Eagle Scout Award. Herb raced boats on the Colorado River and was an avid water skier. He also liked a good game of golf with his friends.

In 1968, Herb was called to duty to serve in the Army. He was stationed in Alaska to assist in setting up missile silos. After a year, Herb requested to be sent to Vietnam to stand beside his friends and better serve his country. After being honorably discharged from the Army, he began his career as an electrician. Herb married his first wife, Florence Lomen in 1972 where they raised their family in Eagle Rock. In 1979, Herb, Florence and family moved to Arroyo Grande (Huasna Valley) where they bought an Apple Farm. In 1980, Herb started his own electrical business, H.M. Hart Electric.
