Phillip Wray Webb was born on July 10, 1949 and passed surrounded by family and friends on May 13, 2017. He was born in Kansas City, MO to Cliffard Wray and Eula Webb. He is survived by wife of 35 years Karen Webb and three children, Sara (Mark) Webster, Lauren (Fiancé Zach Suer) Webb, Beau Webb and his older sister Kay Hall.
Upon graduating from North Kansas City High School, Phillip went on to attend University of Northern Colorado where he ran the town with his TKE Fraternity Brothers. Phillip was introduced to his wife Karen by matchmaking Grandma Cookie at Aunt Dee’s famous Christmas Party. From that time on they were inseparable. After college, Phillip started the company Human Resources Inc., which he turned into a successful business which was later sold to Peliton. Phillip cherished every one of his clients.
Phillip would often refer to his life as having ‘Gold in his Hands’ because of his wonderful family. His face would brighten every time all of his little buddies in the neighborhood would come by and say hi and hang out with him. A Strawberries and Cream drink from Starbucks would make him smile brightly. More recently he loved sitting on the porch toasting to a beautiful sunset at his new house in the family’s communal neighborhood. He worked tirelessly on the front and back yards to make it a better place to host family get-togethers. The new house also brought him closer to his parents at Crowne Hill where he would converse with them and collect rocks. Phillip enjoyed his new man cave at the house (the garage) and would spend hours organizing with the goal of making enough room to fit both Lauren and Karen’s cars.
Phillip’s hobbies included playing golf and showing Beau the ropes at Castle Pines Country Club. Phillip was a fine golfer and actually made 3 holes-in-one! He always looked forward to the family’s yearly ‘boys trip’ to Spring Creek. Phillip was an avid sports fan and loved his Denver Broncos, but he was particularly fond of watching Beau and Lauren excel in Basketball.
Everyone that met Phillip knew that he lived his life for his wife and kids. Phillip adored his “Sunshine” - wife, Karen- and was always spoiling her, whether it was taking her to a special dinner or windexing her car windows. He loved to have his family together, laughing, drinking wine and Crowne and playing cards.
Phillip Webb had a few mottos that he referred to as ‘Philisms’:
Work hard each and every day, treat people the way you want to be treated and you will be happy and successful.
Be a man of your word, if you say you are going to do something, do it.
Raise your Glass of Crown—life is PEACHES!
