Obituary for Larrie Earl Webb

Larrie Earl Webb, age 83, passed away peacefully at home on Monday, December 27,
2021, in Brighton, Michigan. Larrie was born January 5, 1938, in Detroit, Michigan, son to
the late Edward Earl Webb and Thelma Opal Faull. He was also preceded in death by his
loving wife Darleene Dawn Webb, his son Larrie Mark Webb and his sister Darleen Webb
Rimar.

Larrie is survived by his wife Kathy McLean Webb, his daughter Karen Moore (Jeff),
stepdaughters Katie Foran (Sean), Karrie Martin (Christian) and grandchildren Ian Moore
(Rebecca), Erin Moore, Jack Foran, Jake Foran, Mead Martin, Isaac Martin, and Mclean
Martin.

Larrie was a man of many blessings, and we were all blessed to have him in our lives.

Larrie married his first wife, Darleene “Dollie” (nee: Vogt) Webb in 1958 and they spent 52
wonderful years together. Larrie worked for General Motors, in the Printing Division, for
over thirty years. He made lifelong friends at GM and was always grateful for the guidance
that the “Old Timers'' gave him on life, love, and investments. Larrie and Dollie spent their
weekends at their cabin on Bass Lake, in East Tawas, building a lifetime of memories with
their children and their neighbors. They spent long hours on their boat, The Spiders Webb,
listening to Tiger’s games on the radio while Dollie fished to her heart’s content.
Not only did Larrie love to listen to baseball, he loved to play it! Larrie played on the GM
Photographic Team for many years. They were even City Champs in 1957.

After Dollie passed, Larrie met, and married, Kathy (nee: McLean) Webb. They had nine
loving years together before he passed away this week. Kathy was by his side until the
very end. Although they didn’t have a lifetime together, they packed in more fun than most
of us have in a lifetime! They traveled the world together; from Ireland to Italy, and a million
places in between! They enjoyed guided tours, river boat cruises, fine dining, and
picturesque moments too numerous to name. They spent their winters in Punta Gorda,
Florida with their friends at Blue Heron Pines; playing golf, going to the beach, and enjoying
the community that they dearly loved. They especially loved hosting family members who
flocked to Florida to escape the snowy north. The memories made with their children and
grandchildren will last a lifetime.

Larrie had a deep love of life - Whether he was telling stories about his days at GM,
enjoying live music while dancing the night away, or simply enjoying an adult beverage on
the back porch, he did it with a smile on his face. He was gentle, generous, and kind
beyond measure. And, he was funny! Larrie never missed an opportunity to make
someone smile. After learning how much Kathy disliked tattoos, he showed up to their first
date with a large spider web tattoo pasted onto his neck! In his younger years, he once
shaved off half of his mustache, just to see how long it would take his family to notice. Even
in his final days, his humor brought joy to those around him. When asked if he’d like to get
out of bed he smiled, and said, “Sleep is life’s most inexpensive pleasure. I think I will stay
right here and go back to sleep.” His wisdom, humor, and kindness will be remembered by
everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. He is missed already and will be loved
forever.

A celebration of his life will be held in the spring. We will enjoy an “adult beverage” or two
and celebrate the amazing life that he led, and the fact that we all got to be a part of it!
