Donald W. Webb

 

MERCER, Wis. — Donald W. Webb, 84, of Mercer, formerly of Kenosha, passed away suddenly at his home on Thursday, March 14, 2013.

Donald was born on June 22, 1928, in Kenosha, to George and Gertrude (Getschman) Webb, and he was educated in the schools of Kenosha. He served for six years in the Army National Guard.

Donald married Donna Wade on April 29, 1950, at the First Congregational Church in Somers. He worked for Dynamatic/Eaton Corporation for 39 1/2 years, starting as a draftsman and working his way up to chief draftsman of the mechanical engineering department.

Don was a member of the Danish Brotherhood Lodge #47 until he moved to Mercer. He loved the outdoors, especially his time spent fishing and hunting. He had a real connection with the wildlife and was known for being able to feed deer right from his hand. Don enjoyed woodworking, but his greatest joy was the time he spent with his family, especially his grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his daughter, Jodie Wood; two brothers, Clarence and Arthur Webb; and his sister, Diane Perrault.

Donald is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Donna, of Mercer; his son, Jeffrey Webb, of Mercer; two daughters, Charmayne (Jack) Eckert, of Kenosha, and Tracey Webb of Whitewater; his son-in-law, Roy Wood, of Flippin, Ark .; 10 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; his trusted four-legged companion, Rusty; as well as nieces, nephews and many friends.

Funeral services for Donald will be held at 1 p.m. on Thursday, March 21, at the Hansen-Lendman Funeral Home, 6019 Seventh Ave ., Kenosha, with interment to follow at Sunset Ridge Memorial Park.

A visitation will be held at the funeral home on Thursday from 11 a.m. until the time of service.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to the United Methodist Church in Mercer or to the family would be greatly appreciated.
