John “Bob” Webb

John Watson Webb
November 12, 1933-March 22, 2019

John (Bob) Webb was born in Richwood, WV to Dayton and Rebecca Webb on November 12, 1933. He graduated from Richwood High School and married his sweetheart, Wanda Webb in 1954. He served in the US Navy as a hospital corpsman for 5 years.
John was employed by Union Carbide Construction Department and later transitioned to Dow Chemical Company from which he retired after 39 years. He faithfully served his church and was also an active member of the Masonic Lodge and the Shriners. After retirement, John continued in service as he spent many years volunteering his time helping others in need at his local food pantry in Clear Lake.
John will always be remembered as a man who had a strong, personal relationship with his Lord and Savior. Anyone who met him could see that love and faith shine through his infectious smile and personality. He was a giving, Christian man, always there to help others in need. His love of God guided him in all areas of his life and it was these values John instilled in his sons as he taught them how to be Godly men, husbands, fathers, and neighbors.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Dayton and Rebecca Webb, brothers, Jim and Henry (Gene) Webb, wife Wanda Webb, and one great-grandchild, Baby Dunbar.
He is survived by his son Bruce Webb (Sandy) of League City, TX, son Mike Webb (Sandy) of Alvin, TX, brother Bill Webb of Barboursville, WV, sister Linda Nester of Akron, OH, brother in law Richard Nester of Akron, OH.
Grandchildren and Great-Grandchildren:
Elise Lyons (Brad), Tyler and arriving in April Emma Jane, Steffanie Dunbar (Clint), Kyndall and Justin, Aaron Webb (Courtney), Raegan and Leighton, Casey Bean (Caleb) Brody and Wyatt as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.
A celebration of John’s life will be held at The Harbor Church in Friendswood on Saturday, March 30 at 1:00. It will be in Foundry which is on the 3rd floor and can be reached from the back side of the church off 528. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to your local food bank, or the Alvin High School Jacket Snacket program in John’s honor.

  2. John was such a wonderful man! Always a smile to share and such a twinkle in his eyes! He and Wanda were such special friends and so loved by the Ken Lyon family! I have so many happy memories of he and my dad at Carbide and other gatherings laughing and enjoying each other’s company. There was never a shortage of jokes and stories. I am so blessed to have known your parents and will cherish these wonderful memories. They will always have a special place in my heart! Such rejoicing in Heaven. Well done My good and faithful servant.

    Love in Christ,

  3. John was such a special person! He always had a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eyes! Your parents were very special to the Ken Lyon family. I have many wonderful memories of John and my dad at work and other gatherings telling stories, laughing together and possibly some mischievousness while mom and Wanda shook their heads and grinned. He will always hold a special place in my heart! Such a godly man with a servant’s heart! I know there was rejoicing in heaven as he entered the gates! Well done my good and faithful servant!
    Love to you all,
