Kenneth Albert “Toby” Webb passed away February 19 at his home in Crystal River, Florida.
Toby was born in Gainesville, Florida March 16, 1940 to Sidney A. Dearly loved husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend, he is survived by his wife of 56 years, Sara Ferrazzi Webb; his two daughters, Elaine Hopkins and her husband David of Douglasville, GA, Dena Mitchell and her husband Jason of Vacaville, CA; grandchildren Sara and Sam Hopkins, Matthew and Ryan Mitchell and his brother Donald K. Toby graduated from the University of Florida with an entomology degree in 1963. He and his wife owned Webb Exterminators in Gainesville for 25 years before retiring to Crystal River in 1990 where he enjoyed his love for his family, grouper fishing, crosswords and the Gators.
She is also survived by Janet’s family, her devoted friend, Nancy Mc Willie, her brother Gordon Ferriss and wife Paulita, Nieces and Nephews, Susan Weber, Peg Cuthbert, Mark Ferriss, Gordon Ferriss, Jr. She also had a team of exceptional caregivers for whom we would like to give special thanks.
On Sunday mornings, Eddie and Cathy enjoyed their cup of coffee while admiring the beauty they had created on the family farm.
God had a different plan though, and he was unable to meet Eddie III, but we all felt he knew when he was born four floors down from his hospital room.
The angel kiss birthmark on Eddie III’s forehead is proof his Pa Pa welcomed him to this world.
He softened up in his later years when his boys met their wives, and he began to enjoy more time with his family.
It wasn’t until the birth of his grandson, Kace that he actually admitted he would rather stay home than work!
