Donald Webb

Donald D. Webb of Spanish Fork, Utah passed away on February 7, 2018 at 3:15 p.m. in his home. Don was born June 12, 1933 in Salt Lake City to George Alford Webb and Almedia Alice Richey.

Don was preceded in death by his father and mother and Don’s six siblings: Almedia, George Wilford, Richard Leo, Edward, Beverly, and Ronald.  Also, a grandson Michael Cameron Webb, son of Mike and Jill Webb, passed away in infancy.

Don was sealed to Maurine Kirby in the Salt Lake City Temple on December 5, 1955. This was two weeks after returning home from serving for two years in the Eastern States Mission.  New York City was one of his favorite places to meet people and share the gospel.

Don was drafted in the U.S. Army in February 1956 and fulfilled his tour of duty in Germany. After his discharge he attended the University of Utah and graduated in 1961.

Don and Maurine resided in Fresno, California and Don was employed by the IRS. Maurine passed away on January 2, 1987.

Don married Velda Maw Seager on July 10, 1987 in the Oakland Temple. In 2002 they moved to Spanish Fork.

Don is remembered by his wife, 5 children: Michael (Jill), Merrilee, Melinda (Don),  Michelle (Douglas), and Marc (Jennifer);  3 step-children:  Dana (Miguel),  Brian (Lore), and Ed (Karla); 27 grandchildren; and 12 great grandchildren.

Don loved his children and grandchildren and was an example to them in dedicating his life to the service of the Lord. He was a bishop and served on the high council.  He and Velda were ordinance workers in the Fresno and Provo Temples for many years and they were fervent in their family history endeavors by searching out ancestors and enlisting the help of family and ward members to complete their temple work.

Don will be remembered for his interactions among the saints in the various wards he attended; his thoughtful comments were an inspiration especially since he lived a life of integrity. Don was proficient in financial matters and maintained a great respect for the resources that were in his stewardship.  Don had a strong work ethic and was an excellent mentor in teaching this skill to his children.  Don cared deeply for both Maurine and Velda and treated them with dignity, respect, and love; he was proud to be their husband and provider.

Family and friends are invited to a viewing on Sunday, February 11 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. and prior to the funeral services on Monday, February 12 from 9:45 – 10:45 a.m. Funeral services will begin at 11:00 a.m.  Services for the viewing and funeral will be at the Spanish Fork Utah East Stake Center located at 1180 E. 1240 S. in Spanish Fork.

Don will be laid to rest next to his wife Maurine in the Lake Hills Cemetery, 10055 S. State Street in Sandy, at 2:30 p.m.

3 Memories

  1. Sondra Proctor Powell

    While we lived with my parents in Spanish Fork for awhile Bro. Webb was one of the home teachers. He truly cared and loved all. He took the time to get to know my children and helped them learn the gospel with his companion Bro. Pace. They were some of the best home teachers we ever had. Bro. & Sis. Webb made us feel welcomed and loved with the rest of the ward. So grateful we were able to know Bro. Webb in this life. May our Heavenly Father be with his wife and family. He will be missed. He was a soft and loving man.

  2. Don was a wonderful Bishop in Fresno. All the Webb family members have created great memories for me. My condolences to you all.

    Brother Webb is one I have fond memories of from 7th ward in Fresno. I am sorry to hear that Maurine and he have passed away but now they are together in Paradise.
    Merrilee, is that you who work in Merced or somewhere a bit north of Fresno? I now live in Visalia and am a retired nurse and spend my time volunteering for CASA with children in the CPS and foster system.
