Donald Eugene Webb

July 5, 2014

Donald Eugene Webb was born in Rule, Texas on Nov. 1, 1928. On Tuesday, June 24, 2014, he made a peaceful journey from this life to the next to be reunited in paradise with his parents, Percy and Elva Webb and his brother Darwin Webb.

He is survived by his faithful friend and love of his life, Barbara Hitt, Bluff Dale, Texas; three children and their spouses, Elaine and Eddy Booth, Montevallo, Ala.; Jerry Webb, Tolar, Texas; and Gloria and Joe Elmore, Texarkana, Texas; the mother of his children, Wilma Cunningham, Midland, Texas; and one sister, Grace Myers, Paso Robles, Calif.

He was “Pop Don” to his grandchildren, Shelli Harrington of Big Spring, Texas; Michael Webb, N. Richland Hills, Texas; Mark Webb, Pilot Point, Texas; Lance Webb, Austin, Texas; Meghan Webb, Fort Worth, Texas; Alison and Kevin Hughes, Montevallo, Ala.; Jimmy Hopper Jr. and Brook Hopper, Ventura, Calif.; Eric Elmore, Austin, Texas; and Kaitlin and James McMichael, Denver, Colo.; and his great-grandchildren, Brycen Kiker, Mason Harrington, Korleigh Webb, Kaimee Webb, Kylan Webb, Bailey Ables, Saydie Webb, Patrick Baugh, Jackson Hughes and Winter Hopper.

He was a gentleman, a cowboy and a teacher of life. He loved his family, people, horses, dogs and everything about nature. He enjoyed running marathons, cowboy poetry, his community, cattle and being a steward of the land.

He was all about “living” and believed in leaving this place better than he found it. He loved the Lord and looked forward to whatever was “next” with a smile of anticipation of meeting new friends and making new memories. He never talked about anyone unless it was good and always looked for the good in everyone.
While raising his family in Coahoma, Texas, he served on the school board and was a community volunteer and church leader. He was a 4-H Club sponsor and influenced many young people in all areas. After his retirement from Cosden Oil and Chemical/Fina Refinery, he spent the next 30 years in Hico, Texas, as a rancher, teacher and civic volunteer.

He devoted his efforts to promoting many civic projects and developing lasting friendships. His passion and life work culminated in the planting of trees along the walking trail at the Hico City Park to create a place that would inspire people to gather for exercise and relaxation.

His family wishes to continue his dream and asks that, in lieu of flowers and gifts, that donations be made to the “Donald Webb Memorial Fund” at Mills County State Bank, P.O. Box 248, Hico, Texas.

A special memorial service to celebrate his life will be held at his home place in Hico on Saturday, July 19, 2014, at 4 p.m. All are welcome to attend and remain for a fun time of food, music and storytelling.
