Former Pennsylvania Insurance Commissioner Herbert Denenberg died earlier this month.

Denenberg, 81, served as the Pennsylvania commissioner from 1971 to 1974, then spent 24 years working as a television consumer affairs reporter.

“Herb served as commissioner with one goal and focus: to fight for the rights and protections of the insurance-buying public,” Joel Ario, the current Pennsylvania commissioner, says in a statement. “He was steadfast in his fight to protect the consumers of this commonwealth, often taking on large insurance companies and challenging them to do what was right.”

Denenberg had a bachelor’s degree from Johns Hopkins University, a law degree from Creighton University, a master of laws degree from Harvard University, and a doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania.

He held the Chartered Property and Casualty Underwriter and Chartered Life Underwriter professional designations.

He served for 3 years in the U.S. Army in the Judge Advocate General Corps. While in the reserves, he rose to the rank of captain.
