William George “Bill” Webb As a child he was called ‘Billy George’, most people just called him Bill, to others he was Dad or Grandpa. William George Webb was born a much-loved son to George Martin Webb and Dora Bell Oldham Webb on March 10, 1933. He died March 25th, 2015 in Tulsa after a brief illness. Bill lived and farmed his 82 years on the same land where he was born in the Masham community of Pawnee County. He attended Oak Grove School through 8th grade and graduated from Pawnee High School in 1950. Bill said he ‘quit’ college every weekend the first semester, but his mother would always talk him into going back to Stillwater by Sunday afternoon. He went on to earn an agriculture degree from Oklahoma A&M with a double major in field crops and animal husbandry. He remained a life-long learner who continued to incorporate new practices into his farming and ranching. Bill married Joy Ann Brewer on June 9, 1956 in Pawnee. Bill recently told Joy, “Our life has been great!” He was most proud of the blessings of his family: Billy and Janet Webb of Pawnee, Cindy and Albert May of Perkins. Grandchildren Kristal and Jeff Zerr of Hermann, Missouri, Kevin Webb of Pawnee, Kimberly and Mark Tilley of Maramec, and Karen and Zac Privott of Chandler. Bill was looking forward to Kevin’s wedding to Alyce Vigil in June. Great-grandchildren Korrin, Jaylynn, Alaina, and Lydia Zerr and Lyndin and Landry Tilley. The first great-grandson, J. Allen Privott, will be born this summer as well. Bill was a deacon and active member of the Masham Baptist Church where he held several positions through the years including treasurer and song leader. He was also a quiet supporter of numerous other ministries and missions, especially those ministering to children. He had a special fondness for Camp Lela Children’s Camp and helped with many projects there through the years. He taught his family the importance of stewardship, faith, practical service, and reliance on God. Bill enjoyed spending time with family and always found ways to do that. He took them on a summer vacation every year when the kids were growing up, even though it was the busiest time of the year on the farm. Bill always encouraged the interests of his family and helped with things like 4-H and FFA projects. He was very proud of the grandchildren and the adults they had grown to be. He loved the life he had and the work he did. He had slowed down through the years but still was feeding his cattle until just a few weeks before his death. Bill walked on peacefully to a heavenly home where he had been sending treasures ahead for many years.
