Harvey Jackson Webb, Jr.

Jack4Harvey Jackson Webb, Jr. passed away on Sunday, December 20, 2015 in Houston, Texas at the age of 82.

Born on January 3, 1933 in Atlanta, Georgia to Harvey Jackson Webb, Sr. and Maggie Pickard Webb.

Jack’s early fascination for electronics started with radio communications back in the 1940’s where he began his career in television repair. After his service in the Navy, his interests and training propelled him into a life-long career in communication technology starting with RCA, NASA and Sperry Univac to name a few. Jack’s career highlights in the Space Program included training the Apollo astronauts, building satellites and cutting edge communications technology. His gifted hands were skilled to repair or build most anything he put his mind to. He designed and built a beautiful lake house in Conyers, Georgia where he loved spending time on his pontoon boat and jet skis, or just relaxing and watching the lake. Seeing his kids, grandkids and great grandkids having fun always brought him great joy. In retirement, his favorite pastime was travelling across the country with Peg and their pups in the infamous Roadtrek – stepping foot in all but a few states.

He is preceded in death by his parents: Harvey Jackson Webb, Sr. and Maggie Pickard Webb; Brothers: Jerry Webb and Willie Joe Webb.

Jack is survived by his loving wife, Margaret (Peggy) Ann Webb; brother, James Robert Webb; daughters, Barbara (Webb) Grimes and husband James E. Grimes of League City, TX; Deborah (Webb) Human and husband Glenn D. Human of League City, TX, and Sandra (Webb) Peck and husband Dusty M.

He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

  3. I only found out today, and my heart is broken. Peggy and Jack have been so good to me and my family over the years. I can’t even put into words all that my heart wants to say. I am truly sorry for your loss – such a wonderful and caring man! Brilliant and handy with literally anything. I have so many good memories from over the years which will forever live on in my heart. I will miss his smile, big bear hugs, and him calling me “Gal.” All my love to Peggy and your family. God bless, Stacey (Murray) Lane / Conyers, GA
