We are sharing Mr. Webb's obituary as a courtesy to his family. We extend our sincere condolences to Webb and Goins families.
William Edwin Webb, Jr. 79, passed away peacefully at home with his family by his side on Thursday, December 2, 2021.
Bill, better known as “Big D” to family and friends, was born in Wilson NC to Eddie and Rose Webb. He graduated from Fork Union Military Academy, served in the US Army’s Army Security Agency, and enjoyed a successful career in the insurance industry as a managing partner at CEBA, Inc with his lifelong friend, Chandler Bumgarner. He was a brother of the Phalanx 31 Masonic Lodge in Charlotte.
During his life Bill enjoyed fishing in the Pee Dee River, singing in the choir of Wadesboro’s First Presbyterian Church, his chair, reading cowboy and mountain men books, sharing unbelievable, but true, childhood stories, hunting arrowheads with the boys in Anson County peach orchards, breakfast at Cherry Grove with the Deals, lunches with friends and coworkers, boating on the Intracoastal, and traveling with Sara and friends to faraway places. Recently he enjoyed meeting new friends while keeping up with old ones via the telephone. He and his sister talked on the phone every day. But most enjoyable was watching his boys, the grandchildren and great grandchildren grow while offering sage advice and encouragement. He was a good listener. He was a good man, truly one of a kind, and will be missed by many. He loved them all, especially his sons.
Surviving are his wife of 54 years, Sara; sons, Bill III (Elisa), Rogers (Brandy); grandchildren, Jessica Kelly (Adam), Nick Medlin (Shannon), Will Webb IV, Andrew Webb, Sara Grace Webb, Georgia Perry Webb, and Kaden Craft; great grandchildren, Colton and Caroline Kelly, Fitz Medlin. Elisa and Brandy were like his daughters. He loved their attention and they loved him. He is also survived by his sister and brother in-law, Rebecca and Ken Goins; nephews and niece, Michael Weaver (Tina), David Weaver (Tracy), Marion Vacarro (Michael), and Ashley Quick (Tonya); and his two loyal dogs Percy and Marvin.
He was predeceased by his parents, sister and brother in-law, Susan and Bill Quick.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Hospice of Lincoln County, 900 Donita Dr, Lincolnton NC 28092.
His family will receive friends beginning at 12 noon Tuesday followed by a memorial service starting at 1 PM at Heritage Funeral Home, 3700 Forest Lawn Dr, Matthews NC 28104. An online guest and condolence registry is available at www.heritagecares.com
