He was a member of New Beginnings at Chandler Springs.


He is survived by three daughters; two step-daughters; one son; one step-son; three sisters: Sharon McHugh, Rosalyn Cain and Edith Mary Mathews Webb; two brothers, James McHugh (Patty) and Raymond Webb; and seven grandchildren.


He is preceded in death by his parents, Raymond Howard Webb, Jr. and Alma Blanche McHugh Webb; and his wife, Annette Hardeman.
