Al was the oldest student in his KHS graduating class of either 1949 or 1950. When he was handed his diploma on the Football field platform he raised both arms (like "Rocky") as if to say: "I finally made it". Everyone in the stadium rose to their feet and gave him a STANDING OVATION.
To the Webster Family: The Giants of the Golden Years in the 50s-early 60s were my heroes. Alex Webster was a tremendous dependable player on one of the great teams of all time. His humility, gratitude, and good natured way of being is a credit to him and his family. Best of the best. Once a Giant always a Giant.
Mr. Webster was one of my heroes on those great Giants teams from the late '50s-early '60s. "Number twenty-nine, Alex Webster..."
I remember Alex playing football in the Kearny High School games. He was great then, later in college and then with the Giants. God bless him and his family at this sad time.
Big Red and I spent time together in New York City in the late 70's. We had some mutual friends, though I was more than 20 years his junior.Every place we went, Red was mobbed by fans. Meeting after work at Mike Manucci's was a special treat. Everyone stopped by to say hello to Red, who always introduced me as "coach". He was a gentleman and a lot of fun!
So sorry to read about the passing of your father.I have great memories watching Mr. Webster run the football on sundays for the giants.My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.Sorry Sam
Debbie and Jim: You are in my thoughts and prayers. Your Dad and Mom were very good to me the summer of 1972 when I went to training camp. They opened up their home and their hearts to me. We stayed in touch each Christmas after I moved to NH. They both are a part of MY history. God's Blessing to you and your families during this difficult time.
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
Alex was a classmate and teammate at N.C. State in the early 50's - a great friend and one of the first "big" running backs - went to Canada for his first year in the pros, but later became a legend as a player and coach in the NFL - an infectuous smile, great sense of humor, and good friend to all. What fond memories of college years!

He once said to me, "No matter what goes wrong, just keep smiling."
It's hard now, Alex.

DEAR FAMILY OF ALEX WEBSTER-MAY THE GOD OF COMFORT COMFORT YOU AND YOUR AT THIS TIME WHEN HIS KINGDOM RULE IS SO NEAR.IT WILL BRING TO OUR EARTH WHAT WE NEED FOR PEACE AND HAPPINESS.DANIEL 2:44.MATTHEW 6:9,10.
I had the opportunity to spend time with Alex, as he was in the same Independent Living Facility as my Mother, Harbor Place, in Port St. Lucie. My mother used to make him laugh with her many New York stories.He was quite an enjoyable individual who was willing to discuss anything, in addition to football. A friend of mine, who was a collector of sports memorabilia, asked me if it was possible to get a signed photograph. Alex was more than willing to oblige. In fact, he went up to his room, came back down, and signed the photo to my friend. He was a great football player and a classy gentleman.My condolences to his family. We lost a good one.
To the the family of Alex Webster - May God give you peace and comfort through his word and the Lord Jesus Christ during this time of sorrow, I know that he will be missed by many.
Alex Webster is Kearny, N.J. I remember as a youngster how he was loved by everyone. He was the greatest football player we ever had.
My memories of my Father loving him and then seeing him walking on Kearny Avenue will always remain in within my heart. He always took time to smile and say Hello and I have been a fan of Alex's all my life!
Rest in Peace, Alex!
The Webster family has had a great loss but the Lord has a wonderful and Great gain.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Alex and his wife Louise were good friends. God speed and thanks for the memories.
Big Red was MY guy! Strong and fearless he was the epitome of Gint ball control and the stuff of legends in the '50s.He along with Robustelli,Gifford,Rote,et al
was the foundation of the Giants.I'll always remember ol' 29 as he bashed his way to the goal line. God bless him!
A full life well lived. Thanks for the legacy. May he continue in God's memory.
My family lived on Long Island during the 1960 football season and I remember in our backyard games, I got to make believe I was "Alex Webster" . After that I always paid attention to his career and liked what I saw.
My condolences to the family.
Our hearts are touched at the loss of one so dear, may your memories comfort you and keep your loved one near. Numbers 6:24
I remember watching Alex as a kid. He was the Giants power runner and he was very good and durable. I don't remember him being injured at all. He had a great life may God grant him His peace.
Our most heart felt condolences go out to the whole Webster family from all the Armstrong's
