He leaves three children, Mary Ruth Webber Miller (Donald) of Manistee, Michigan; Elizabeth Ann Webber Young (John) of Herndon, Kentucky; John Matthew Webber (Jean) of Lucerne, Indiana. He was proud of all 12 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren.
Mr. Webber was a lifelong farmer who saw many innovations in his lifetime, from farming with teams of Belgian horses, to the use of modern computerized machinery. He was a generous man and an avid reader of history, science and economics. He played in the woods as a child and continued to admire trees all of his life. He called on the name of Christ many years ago and was a child of God. His new address is HEAVEN.

A private family service will be held at a later date.

Kroeger Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
