John Creer Webb Obituary
May 23, 1947 ~ June 26, 2014
The world has lost another bright, valiant warrior for all that is good and right!
John Creer Webb, age 67, died in the early hours of Thursday, June 26, 2014 surrounded by his family and loved ones. He courageously battled an insidious, deadly cancer for 10 months and 'finally' agreed to move off this planet and back to our Father in Heaven.
John was born in Salt Lake City on May 23, 1947 to Archibald George Webb and Lucille Creer Webb. He was raised in Ogden, Utah and lived and loved there for most of his life! He graduated from Ogden High School, and the University of Utah where he excelled in most sports - basketball being his number one love with golf a close second. John also played baseball and boxed for the Marshall White Hep Cats. He grew up on 25th street along with his much loved brother Richard. In the style of "Spanky and Our Gang" he led a pack of rowdy boys called the "25th Street Toughies"...full of mischief and adventurous spirits they ruled the East Bench of Ogden doing their fun escapades. Completing an honorable mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Western States, John loved the work and his companions - especially his favorite cohort Craig Hanson! They both returned to Utah to make their careers in Broadcasting and shared a life-long friendship. After a two year courtship, John married his Eternal Sweetheart. Sharon McAllister Webb, on March 16, 1972 in the Salt Lake Temple. True to his style throughout his life John made the commitment to be a loving, faithful, fiercely loyal husband and father...leaning towards a strong-willed, determined style to create a beautiful, fun life for his four children; two of whom were severely handicapped daughters, and his amazing wife! John would enthusiastically throw Becky and Katie into baby back packs and off those six family members would go for a hike in the beautiful mountains above Ogden. He along with Sharon taught Matt and Jennie the joy of skiing, golfing and riding horses at Uncle Richard's ranch! As avid back-packers each year the four of them would camp-out in the beauty of the back country of the Uintah Mountains. He loved his golfing buddies and passed his passion for golf onto his children and grandchildren. John worked hard to provide a wonderful life for his family at his 'other passion' - the broadcasting business. Involved in the industry since his graduation from the University of Utah in 1972, he took a job in Flint Michigan with Poole Broadcasting. He and Sharon returned to Utah in 1975 after the birth of their son Matt to be close to family and the beautiful Utah mountains - where they settled in for good as their family grew. Involved in both church and civic activities John could be found anxiously engaged in great causes. He was a Rotarian, on the boards of the Ogden Country Club and Enable Industries. He was a devoted supporter of Developmental Training Systems and other special needs organizations. John remained an active devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving in many capacities such as Bishop and High Councilman.
John is survived by his devoted and loving wife, Sharon (Birdie), and his brother, Richard; his children, Matthew (Kira), (Nathan & Katie Wahlstrom); Rebecca and his eight adored grandchildren, Navie, Isabelle, Luke, Isaac, Trey, Benjamin (Bear), Cruz and Peter; many in-laws; nieces and nephews and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents; Arch and Lucille Webb; much loved sister-in-law, Kathleen and adored daughters, Katie and Jennie Lynn.
