We were sorry to learn of the passing of Dave Webb.
The Instructors involved with Tippecanoe County 4H Shooting Sports are well aware that John David Webb, whom we knew as Dave Webb, established this county's Shooting Sports Program in 1991. We fully understand that, without Dave Webb's dedicated efforts 24 years ago, there would not be a 4H Shooting Sports Program that now involves 100 to 175 local 4H youth every year in Tippecanoe County.
Therefore, both to honor the family's request and to honor Dave Webb's memory, Tippecanoe County 4H Shooting Sports is setting aside funds to establish the John David Webb 4H Shooting Sports Scholarship. How that scholarship will be applied will be determined by the then current Shooting Sports Instructors together with the Tippecanoe County Extension Office, with the only restriction being that it must relate to some aspect of Shooting Sports and the 4H goals for youth.
The current Shooting Sports Instructors: Dave Reagan, Van Phillips, Velina Lindley, Kenneth Croy, Todd Crum, Norman Tatman, Fred Moser, Jay Mann, Matthew Phillips and Shawn LeChien

Wishing I could be with you to help comfort and support you during this time. Your dad loved you more than life and it is hard to believe that he is gone. He is flying with the eagles in search of nest to keep watch over you. He will always be by your side so feel free to call his name. When you gaze at the night sky the brightest star will be him lighting the night just for you. So sorry he left on his journey so early in life but your world has been full because he was in your lives. I love you all!!!!
