Larry Webb "Gene" of Springdale, WA, passed away on July 6, 2019 with his wife, parents and brothers at his side after a valiant fight for his life. He was born April 10, 1979 in Newport, WA to Andrew Thomas Webb and Gloria Dawn Webb (Taylor).
Gene graduated in 1997 from Deer Park High School. He then began his career as a carpenter, later switching to the operating engineers, learning how to operate cranes and heavy equipment. He was very skilled in the trades, as well as a very skilled mechanic. He was later diagnosed with Loeys-Deitz Syndrome and was forced to retire at the age of 30.
Gene enjoyed spending time with his entire family, especially his wife and kids. He loved working on cars, farming, hunting, and snowboarding. Most of Gene's time in retirement was spent helping others, for which he had a genuine passion. He always arrived at the drop of a hat and with a big smile on his face. His laugh was infectious, and it brightened up the entire room. He was a caring, giving, loving person who always saw the positive in every situation.
Gene will be deeply missed, loved, and his memory treasured forever.
He was preceded in death by his son Sherman Andrew Welpton.
