Robert Webb, 60, of Clarks Summit, died Thursday at Commonwealth Health Regional Hospital of Scranton. His wife of almost 14 years is Colleen Graff.
Born in Kankakee, Ill., Rob was the son of the late James A. and Joan A. Dedek Webb. He was a veteran of the United States Air Force and received his master's degree in math from SUNY Binghamton. Rob was employed as a data analyst for many years for various companies, and was most recently employed as a clerk for Canon Business Solutions.
Rob always wanted to be remembered as a "good man." That is an understatement. Not many men step into a ready-made family, especially one with a special needs child, but he jumped right in and helped out. He cherished the time he had with his daughter and son, and he was a loving husband who enjoyed surprising his wife. His love language was definitely "acts of service." In addition to always supporting his family, he readily would come to the aid of neighbors, family and friends whenever they needed "tech support" or help with math. He used his talents for woodworking to make beautiful gifts for family and friends. He also enjoyed reading, fencing, ping-pong and, most recently, pickleball. Now that he has transitioned to the other side, he will likely do what he can to see that his White Sox do well this year.
Also surviving are a son, Ronald "Dewey" Graff; a daughter, Meg Graff; a brother, Jim and wife, Joan; and three sisters, Terri Ellerbach and husband, Don; Karen Webb; and Jane Russell and husband, Matt; his father-in-law, John McInerney; his sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Kara and Francis Hopkins; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
He was also preceded in death by his mother-in-law, Maureen McInerney.
The funeral will be Thursday with Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. at the Church of St. Gregory, 330 N. Abington Road, Clarks Summit, to be celebrated by the Rev. John M. Lapera, pastor. Friends may call from 9 to 10 a.m. at the church. Interment, Cathedral Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the World Wildlife Fund, the Special Olympics, Catholic Charities or the American Heart Association.
