Arthur Ives Webb, 88, recently of Fort Myers, FL, passed away peacefully with family members at his side on Wednesday, June 26, 2013. He was born on July 10, 1924 in New Haven, CT, the first of four boys of Arthur J. and Marie G. Webb.
Arthur grew up in New Haven, CT, with family summer vacations spent in West Palm Beach, FL. After graduation from high school, Arthur attended Yale University. His civil engineering studies at Yale were interrupted by WWII, when he proudly served in the United States Navy. Arthur ultimately graduated from Brown University, where he met his wife-to-be, Lucie. They were married in 1947 and were blessed with five children.
Over the next 23 years, they lived in Rhode Island, Delaware and Pennsylvania. In 1971, they permanently moved to Coral Springs, FL, where Arthur was very active as a member of the Planning and Zoning Board for this new, growing city. Arthur and Lucie worked closely together in their Coral Springs title company for almost 20 years.
In 1991, with all their children grown and married, the couple settled in Naples, FL for their retirement years. Arthur was devastated after Lucie's death in 2009 and eventually moved to Fort Myers, FL to be closer to two of his daughters.
