Roscoe Clayton Webb Obituary
February 13, 1928 - June 1, 2017 Roscoe Clayton Webb, Jr. MD, age 89, of Wayzata, MN, passed away on June 1, 2017. Roscoe was born in Minneapolis in 1928 and grew up on Lake Harriet. Roscoe was preceded in death by 2nd wife Lydia McRae Webb, parents Roscoe Clayton Webb MD and Edith Mae Legate Webb, and younger brother Robert Legate Webb MD. Roscoe is survived by his three sons, Roscoe Clayton Webb III (wife, Catherine), Timothy Deere Webb, and John Velie Webb; stepdaughter, Mary Ann Hunt Jacobsen (Eric); 5 grandchildren, Caitlin Velie White (Joshua), Ashley Elizabeth Webb, Sara Decker Webb, Finley Clayton Webb, and Madigan Velie Webb; step-granddaughter, Ella Jacobsen; great-granddaughter, Decklynn Laurel White; and 1st wife, and mother of his children, Elizabeth Velie Bovey. Roscoe graduated from The Blake School ('46), Yale University ('50), and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine ('54). He completed his 5-year surgical residency at UCLA and went into private practice in cardiovascular and thoracic surgery at Saint John's hospital in Santa Monica where he had a long and distinguished career. Roscoe had many varied interests throughout his life and an unwavering intellectual curiosity. During his youth, Roscoe was an avid sailor on Lake Harriet and Lake Calhoun and continued to enjoy sailing throughout his life. He enjoyed music at the Hollywood Bowl; evenings at the Magic Castle where he was a life member; spending days and sunsets at the Beach Club in Santa Monica; and being an early adopter of the latest consumer technology products. He was a humble man with a quick wit and encouraged all to pursue higher education and a diligent work ethic. Memorial service will be held at noon on Friday, June 16th, in the Wakefield Chapel at Wayzata Community Church, 125 East Wayzata Blvd., Wayzata, MN. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Blake school.
