Gary Douglas Webster, Saybrook Twp., passed away late Friday evening, August 16, 2019 at his residence.
He was the oldest son of Joe & Marjorie (Cochran) Webster. He graduated from Kingsville High School.
He and his first wife, Sharon Brockelhurst had five children, Gary & Barb, Sheila & Craig, Cindy, Wes & Katie and Casey & Lori. He married Mary Furman Urban in 1981. Mary had two children and her and Gary had two more, Catherine & Darrin, Martha & Tim, Amanda & Marc and Joshua & Jessica.
Gary served in the United States Air Force seven and a half years, he loved being a soldier and served during the Vietnam Era. His rank was E-4 and was Hospital Administrative when he was discharged. He did a few jobs before going to college to be an EMT and an RN. He worked for SCM and Millenium for 25 years before retirement.
Gary had a great love for both bowling and golfing. He was also a kind and gentle soul and took whatever life threw at hm. Then ALS hit him and he fought a good fight, never once felt sorry for his situation. He also loved to travel and hated that ALS took that from him.
