I am so very sorry to hear of Mr Webb's passing he and my Dad, Tom Silvestro were great friends ( or enemies sometimes) who fought, laughed and worked tirelessly for the city of Northfield. Truly lost another of the Greatest Generation with Bob's passing. Wishing you all peace at this difficult time.

My condolences to Master Chief Webb's entire family. I grew up around the Navy Reserve community and even had the pleasure of serving with Chief Webb at one point. He was a true leader and mentor to many sailors and officers.
