Jim was a great guy. He was my first friend in Champs boxing class. He always gave me the encouragement to keep pushing thru and not to give up when I wanted to. Some times when it was pouring out we put his bike in my truck and I took him home. He was a great guy and everyone loved him. I'm really gonna miss my first boxing friend. My Thoughts and Prayers are with the whole family.
With Living Thoughts,

Jim Webb was the first person to put a smile on someone’s face that walked in a room. From the earliest childhood memories of riding through the sand dunes letting me drive on his lap , driving home from snack jacks at a age that wasn’t important, every thing I know about fishing the back waters to just sitting on the oceans shore with a cold one in your hand and a pole in the water. Thanks for the memories you will be missed. With love the Fannings

Our sincere condolences to the Webb family. My son did some tile work for the Webbs and Jimmy & Clyde have taken care of my vehicle. The Webbs are good honest people and Jimmy was a delight to deal with and will be greatly missed by many.

I am Jimmys neighbor down the street who loved getting encouragement from him with every lap I walked around the block trying to loose a few pounds . He introduced me to the Boxing class at Omega 40 where I too enjoyed the days when he showed up in his spandex shorts and did the routine better than the instructor ! He was such a kind and sincere person and I will truly miss his smile and beautiful eyes and all of the stories about his many adventures. The neighborhood will miss you sweet Jimmy !!

I began working for the Webb’s at the young age of 20. I practically grew up there. Jimmy along with Clyde were my mentors for almost 10 years. I truley believe I would not be where I am today without them. Jimmy was always looking for the next fishing trip. I was very fortunate to tag along for many of them. From St. Augustine down to Ormond and all the way to Sanibel island.Most will forever hold a place in my memories. Jimmy I can say I looked up to you like a brother and you will be truley missed. May you Rest In Peace my friend.

Sending love and prayers to the Webb family. My memories of Jimmy also go way back to Omega 40 in the early 80s. I’ll always remember Jimmy for his fun loving way, warm heart, infectious smile, and an ear to ear grin with a twinkle in his eye that fortold shenanigans were imminent. I don’t know anyone hat didn't love Jimmy Webb.
My last memory of him is paddling up to my dock for a chat a few months ago and them off into the sunset on his kayak...see you on he other side Jimmy, rest in peace.

I met Jimmy at Omega health and racquetball club .
My good friend Steve owned the club at that time. Jimmy and I became casual friends . I would watch him play in tournaments and in my thoughts were wow this guy can get to everything .
He had so much charisma
And believe me the ladies love seeing him in his spandex shorts .lol
As the years went by we became better friends . We fish together we rode mountain bikes together we just hung out and really enjoyed our friendship .
We started playing a few tournaments together .
And I would say Jimmy you get to everything when you get there don’t put it back the to the ceiling don’t pass the ball .
Put the ball away roll it out pinch it .
And then it clicked in the eye of the tiger . So one of my favorite memories we went to Georgia to play in the regionals and he was an animal .He was rolling balls out like Tim Hanson and Mark Morrison put together. We won the tournament in our age group and I can remember feeling so happy for him .
Because he was on top of the world .
We drove back to Daytona Beach singing Georgia on my mind most of the way home . I have so many great memories and I love him. Rest in peace my good friend .
