It is with great sorrow that we announce that Edward R. Webb, I has passed away peacefully at his home on March 26, 2021 surrounded by his family. He was a loving husband and father. Known and loved for being a jokester, playing tricks on you would bring him so much joy.

He will be forever missed by his family and friends who knew him best and who loved him most. We have all been so blessed to have had him in our lives for as long as God allowed him to stay with us. We are all better people for having known him because he made us all a little stronger, a little wiser and a little smarter and we are all forever grateful.
