Eddie married the love of his life and soulmate, Cathy Shipp, on June 30, 1984. Many people note him as the most determined and hardest worker one has ever met.
Shantell Renee Padgett, 41, of Jennings, Florida passed away May 14, 2018 in NF Regional Hospital in Gainesville, FL. A private family service will be held at a later date in Myrtle Beach, S. Kenneth Albert “Toby” Webb passed away February 19 at his home in Crystal River, Florida.
Toby was born in Gainesville, Florida March 16, 1940 to Sidney A. Dearly loved husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend, he is survived by his wife of 56 years, Sara Ferrazzi Webb; his two daughters, Elaine Hopkins and her husband David of Douglasville, GA, Dena Mitchell and her husband Jason of Vacaville, CA; grandchildren Sara and Sam Hopkins, Matthew and Ryan Mitchell and his brother Donald K. Toby graduated from the University of Florida with an entomology degree in 1963. He and his wife owned Webb Exterminators in Gainesville for 25 years before retiring to Crystal River in 1990 where he enjoyed his love for his family, grouper fishing, crosswords and the Gators.
He served many years in the Gainesville Jaycees and was President 1969-1970 and became a JCI Senator.
Toby was vice-president of the Gainesville Homebuilders Association in 1977.
Kevin was in duel enrollment as an A student in school.
He loved kids, gathering with friends, music and swimming.
When he wasn’t hauling rock and building roads, he enjoyed every minute on his farm.
He spent countless hours making his property immaculate and was proud of his accomplishment.
Disconcertingly, when he died, the world did not stop.
As our hearts broke open, the mailman delivered mail, phones rang, planes flew overhead. We who loved him go on, too, even though it really hurts. Loved and missed by his wife, Donna, mother, Arbutus, son, Brandon, sisters, Peg (Paul) Coffman, Pat (Allen) Floro, and Pam (Bryn) Jones, brother, Bryan (Linda) Turner, numerous nieces and nephews, especially his hunting buddy, Zac.
We cling to a series of lasts…last time he said, “I love you,” the last meal shared, the last time we hugged him tight–all hard, wiry muscles and bristly beard, smelling like trees and leather and sawdust. We will miss him every day for the rest of our lives. A celebration of life will be held privately with family and friends at a later date.
