Webster was born on December 16, 1948 to Dewey and Stella Delcambre in St. Martinville, Louisiana. Growing up and living in South Louisiana, Webster became an avid hunter and fisherman, but his two greatest passions were cooking and playing music. At 8 years old, he received his first guitar and taught himself how to play. His love of playing music only grew from there. Any instrument he put in his hands he would not stop until he mastered it. Web’s cooking skills were well known to family and friends. Aside from traditional Cajun dishes, his imagination knew no limits as he was known to mix up his own creations utilizing anything found in the kitchen. If there was a gathering and he was around you could be sure there was music and food involved. Most of the time it was both.

Webster met Edith, the love of his life, in July of 1969. They were married in December of that same year. In their 42 years together, his careers included welding, oilfield work and eventually the mining industry, which rooted them in West Texas. There they made numerous friends, most of whom were more like family. Anywhere he went Web was always welcome and he always made others feel welcome as well. He taught his children to live with a spirit of adventure, courage, and humility. May he rest in God’s perfect peace and forever in our hearts.

He is survived by his children Jennifer Delcambre of St. Martinville, Brendan Delcambre, Sr. and spouse Brandy of New Iberia; grandchildren Brendan Delcambre, Jr. and Braxton Delcambre; and siblings Beverly Boutte, Shirley Tanner and spouse Jimmy, and Randy Delcambre.

Preceded in death by his parents, his wife Edith M. Delcambre; and sister Georgia D. Viator.

Brendan, Brandy, B.J. and Braxton, Even though we can’t be with you, please know you are in our hearts and prayers. Your dad sounded like such a great man, but we are not surprised...he raised an awesome, gentle, loving son. We miss you all and hope we can visit soon. You will always be one of our favorite neighbors. Love to all your family, and let your strength come from Jesus during this difficult time. Love, Harvey and Jeanine

My deepest sympathy to the Delcambre family. May your fondest memories of Webster bring you comfort and peace in the coming days.
I have so many good memories of Webster from our younger days. We always had fun when he was around. He was full of life. We hunted and fished together, and also commuted to USL together one semester. I enjoyed many good meals prepared by him, and loved listening to his music.
Although we lost touch over the years, I’ve never forgotten his fun loving spirit and kindness.

Webster and Edith were the first people I met when I first visited and moved to Terlingua, Texas in March of 2000. We had some amazing times back then and I will always remember the good times. My sincere condolences to the family and may both Webster and Edith RIP together forever 💜🙏🏻

I remember him and Edith coming to our house when I was young and of course they were in the kitchen with my mom cooking . I loved his cooking but sometimes it was to hot for me lol. I loved to hear him sing and play.

My sincere condolences go out to Jenny, Brendan and all the family.
Web & my sister were very dear to me & Peter we shared many laughs and a lot
of cold ones and of course good food. Peter & I loved the visits to Terlingua, TX and
of course when they came here it was even better.
Web always kept us entertained through the years with accordion, fiddle and guitar.
Hope you met my sister at the gate. I’m sure there was a pot of gumbo on the stove.
You will be missed by all that knew & loved you😘 Love Gladys & Pete.

Dang, Cuz'--too soon. For all the years we played together as kids on up into high school, I admired your spirit and can-do attitude. You always had something to do or say that got people smiling. Sorry for losing touch but that separation does not ease the pain of you being gone. Say "Hi" to your Aunt Echo for me. Tell her I miss her and hope I will be joining y'all up there--but, I have my doubts. Love ya, bro.
