Robert “Webb” Webster, born on March 26, 1949 and passed away on October 28, 2019 at the age of 70. He was the beloved husband to Diane for 24 years.

Robert was also the proud father to Bob (Valerie) Webster, Amy (Dave) Joldersma, the late Scott Webster, Kim (Steve) Neveau and Melissa Lake.

Robert adored his grandchildren- Amber Smallegan, Samantha (Kyle) Robotka, Dylan Webster, Adam Webster, Dylan Joldersma, Dalton Joldersma, Avery Joldersma, Austin Webster, Zoie Webster, Alex Neveau, Will Neveau, Kendal Lake, Jakob Raisanen, Easton Lake, Emersyn LaMacchia and great grandchildren Ellyana Lake, Elias Matejovitz, Heavenly Bartee and Isabella Bartee.

Robert will be missed by numerous family members including siblings Helen and Gary Riddle, Faye Webster Cope and the late Floyd Webster, aunt Susan Rapson and previous wife Linda Redinger and mother-in-law Joyce Waldron. Robert will be missed by many nieces and nephews.

Robert made countless friends during the time he spent being involved in car shows. Bud and Junior were two very special friends that he held close to his heart.

Robert lived a great life and was proud of his accomplishments, especially building his first family home in Rockford, Michigan, all while working full-time as a Tool & Die Maker. He was raised by his grandparents and grew up spending his summers in Charlevoix and the rest of the year in Belmont. Robert spent most of his time with his cousin Richard, Debbie and Vicki, who were all like siblings to him.

He had a knack for working on and restoring Hot Rod Cars in his spare time. He also loved camping, 50’s music, trinkets and toys and collecting Petoskey stones from his trips up north. His family would considered him a jack-of-all-trades, convinced there wasn’t anything he couldn’t do. Robert loved his family and had a huge heart for children his whole life, therefore, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to St. Jude’s Children Hospital and Kindred Hospice.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, November 2nd from 11am until the time of the Funeral Service at 1pm at Reyers North Valley Chapel.

Robert’s family would like to thank all of the Kindred Hospice nurses for their kind and loving care in the last days and weeks of Robert’s life- especially Gloria Miller.

Bob and I shared many memories from when we were kids. I really appreciated all the hard work he put into organizing so many car shows. Bob was a very caring person and he will be missed by all his car buddies.

I have loved reconnecting with “Mr. Webster” (as I have lovingly called him since childhood)
He Friended me on FB a couple years ago and he and I have enjoyed following each other’s families and he always had the kindest comments. He truly cared.
Kim ( his daughter and apple of his eye) and I have been friends since 7th grade and he loved to bring up stories of us ...;)
He truly enjoyed people and wanted the best for them.💗

We remember the car shows Webb did and the memorial runs he did for other. He was a good man. Funny at time to. He loved his kids and grandkids. He tried to include everyone when doing a car show. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends. RIP Webb. Condolences to the family.

Heaven gained another beautiful angel!

Diane and the entire family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I have known Webb for 20+ years and it has been a absolute pleasure. He excepted me into his family and I was treated no differently. He had a heart of gold. And has proven that many times over.
