He was preceded in death by his parents and his father-in-law, William “Bill” Forste.

Mr. Webb was born July 2, 1957, in Lamar, to Delbert Webb Jr. and Jean Marie (Sullivan) Webb. He was a 1975 graduate of Lamar High School. He married the love of his life, Linda Louise Forste, on Oct. 7, 1978, in Golden City.

He worked at Prairie Screening in Lockwood, but he couldn't be described with a single title. He was great at many things. He was an award winning writer, a professional musician, a philosopher and a friend, but most importantly to him, he was a husband, a father and a grandad. He loved his family with a vigor, passion and ferocity that can never be measured in words.

He was loved by all who knew him and he will be sorely and genuinely missed.
