Carolina, succumbed to cancer at the comfort of his own home in the
loving embrace of his wife, Alice, on September 13, 2018.
SFC Webb enlisted as an Infantryman, following graduation from
Sylva-Webster High School. The "Sarge" dedicated 20 years to the
service of his country, retiring from the U.S. Army in 1995.
Ronnie loved fishing, watching the Atlanta Braves, and singing while

friends for whatever people needed him for.

Webb, Susan Kowalsky (Kevin Kowalsky), son Chad Ronald Webb, loving
uncle to Austin Young; sister, Shirley Webb Guffey (Wade), and dear friend Else Cunningham. Ronnie was a
