Obituary of Robert Wayne Webb

Obituary Robert Webb, born April 20, 1956, was known to everyone as Bob. He is survived by his Brother Jim Webb & wife Lora, 2 nieces (Katie & husband Casey; Kala & husband Carl); Sister, Anita Kiefer & husband Randy, 1 niece (Codi & husband Ryan) and 2 nephews (TJ & wife Stacie, Cory & wife Jacee with 3 children); Sam Kiefer (deceased) with 6 children & Wife Shannon with 3 children; also 2 sons, Robert Jr. & Brandon Webb. He had extended family on his Mother’s side. He was preceded in death by his parents & 1 niece. Bob was a very generous and kind-hearted soul, easily taken advantage of by some because he did not know when to stop giving. He helped friends and family and never turned a blind eye to anyone that needed help. Sometimes he recognized it before the person needing help did and always jumped in with money or food or whatever he could to help someone in need. On the other hand, he was stubbornly independent and would not take help from anyone even if he needed it. He just had to prove he could do everything on his own and he did. Bob was born into a family of traveling construction work. As a young boy he was in many different states and towns. He carried on that tradition when he got old enough to go to work. Bob was a crane operator and iron connector. He worked many construction jobs. He was responsible for the crane that put up the Mary Kay building in Dallas. He was called out to many important jobs as he was one of the best in the field. He worked for Brown and Root for years, Kiewitt and then many others along the way. Bob traveled with a life partner named Linda for 19 years. In 1998, tragedy hit Bob and he lost his right arm to a crane accident on the job. Shortly after losing his arm, he lost his life partner to breast cancer. These two tragedies had a spiraling downhill affect on him for the rest of his life. He hung in there as best he could, but life was never the same for him. We want to remember him for his efforts to adjust to living with one arm and without his life partner, how hard he worked splitting and selling wood, going back to work on construction, and his love of animals and people. He loved motorcycles and Corvettes and loved the mountains of Tennessee. We want to remember his sense of humor that was nostalgic once he got going. Sometimes he could be the funniest person you want to meet. His heart of gold touched many people and he will be missed and remembered for those traits for sure.
