Vic was a kind, loving husband and father. He married the love of his life, Kathie Kay Cook on April 18, 1969. He was a hobbyist. He enjoyed making silver and turquoise jewelry for many years. He created the designs and they were beautiful. He built and raced cars for drag-racing. Vic and his son, Troy started racing at the dirt track in 2000. He could fix anything, including their family home which he renovated from a one-story to a two-story home. Vic was a jack-of-all-trades; he always had some new adventure going on. Vic lived well, and truly lived his best life. He lost his true love just last month, in August, and he truly was broken-hearted. His family rejoices in the fact that he and Kathie have once again been reunited.
Vic was preceded in death by his parents; his daughter, Mendy Lynn Webb; his sister, Mary Sue Shelton, of Duncan, Oklahoma, and his beloved bride, Kathie Kay Webb.
Those left to cherish his memory are his son, Troy Webb, and wife Melissa, of Amarillo; his sister-in-law, Quinna Sue Greer of Costa Rica; his brother, Jack Webb of Duncan, Oklahoma; his sisters, Juretta Burris, and Denise Evans, both of Midwest, Oklahoma; his three grandchildren, McKenzie Webb, Ashton Call, and Jared Webb, all of Amarillo, and two great-grandchildren, Bentley and Baylor.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.” 1 Corinthians 13:1
Vic was always quick with a joke or wit. He enjoyed talking about anything. He was a precise builder of everything he touched. His life was a blessing to his family snd friends as he was loved by everyone. Not sure if he ever had an enemy but he was genuinely a Lovable person. Only saw him mad, really mad once. Rest My Dear Friend snd Loving other Dad.
Worked with Vic for many years. He and Kathy Will be truly missed. He could fix anything and it was a blessing to be around him. So sorry to hear about him and Kathy
I started working with Vic 35 years ago at Trafton. He was one of a kind; definitely a jack of all trades and master of many! I was just a young man when I met him and I was so blessed over the years to have him as a coworker, a teacher, and most of all a friend. Vic taught me a lot of skills and knowledge at Trafton. Even after retiring I still would ask him questions and continue to learn from him. He definitely had a wealth of knowledge that he was eager to teach others. Vic loved his wife, his kids, and his grandchildren. I know firsthand because he talked about them often. RIP Vic Webb, and praying for all the family and loved ones.
I also met Vic while working at Trafton’s 29 years ago. Like others have said he was a man of many talents. Vic helped me re-plumb my first house; that I bought as a young man. I remember him telling me to say a prayer while we were still under the house, that we would not have any leaks, because we were both so exhausted. Vic and I became partners with rental properties and worked on several building and remodeling adventures, including roofing his house and building an addition at Zip Print. Vic was always so proud of the cars that him and Troy would build/race and would always want you to stop and see the new toys or just stop buy the shop and have a beer. “There is one in the fridge”. Vic loved talking about the Troy, Mendy, grand kids, Kathy or what he had found at a swap meet. I could randomly drop in, knowing he would always have a warm welcome and a smile. You will be missed my friend.
