August 16, 1968 ~ April 21, 2019
April 20, 2019 a man whose shoes are too-big to fill left us. Thomas Glen Webb beloved husband, father, son, and brother; passed away unexpectedly at his home in Fairview at the age of 50 following complications with type-1 diabetes. Thomas had fought the disease since the age of 12 and even though he struggled with the condition, he never stopped fighting. He had lived longer then most diabetics at his age group. He never expected to live past 35 and was pleased when that birthday came and went.
He was born in Granger, Utah on August 16, 1968 to Thomas Stanley and DeAnn Webb and had four siblings, brother; Charles; sisters; Becky (Tony) Griffiths, Julia Halladay, and Mary Bruce. He grew up learning to make do with what the family had available, and believed in the self sufficiency of homesteading. Thomas’s free time would be spent doing the things he loved like fishing, hunting, or gardening, and he could make a mean dutch-oven cooked meal. He was a gentle soul, with a very giving heart that would greet you with a ready smile and a quick answer to any question asked of him. He loved his family dearly and was always willing to take care of others.
Thomas married his high school sweet heart Terina Keetch on July 16, 1988. He did it willingly despite the fact she said ”No!” When he asked her to the junior prom. The couple was rarely seen apart in the 30 years they were married together. Their children; daughter; Tesia (Mike) Vandenberghe, and
sons; Christopher, and Kevin considered him a selfless man that was willing to help them anyway they needed. He would talk to them about the simple things, and was more then willing to keep a secret from their mother about any mischief they got into. *Note from mom; ”He told me anyway.” Grandpa Webb
was greeted with open arms by his young grandchildren Kayson and Cole. He had numerous nieces and nephews, and cousins that looked up to him as a friend and role model and will be missed by the may’ others who knew him.
Tom followed in his grandfather Caplinger’s footsteps and took up a career as a machinist for over 20 years before switching to a Quality Assurance Engineer for Flowserve. He loved working with his hands, and it showed in every thing he cared for. He was truly ”The salt of the earth” willing to do whatever he need to provide for his family and go the extra mile to provide a quality product for the company he worked for.
Tommy was a great man and will be missed by all.
WE LOVE YOU DAD.
