Charles ‘Bob’ Robert Webster

GREENWOOD — Charles “Bob” Robert Webster, 78, Greenwood, passed away peacefully on Sunday, Dec. 2, 2012, at Community Hospital South, Indianapolis.

Bob was born on Dec. 13, 1933, to William H. and Nora B. (Riffle) Webster in Logansport. He graduated from Washington Township High School in 1953 in Cass County.

After serving in the Navy, Bob had a lifelong career with Bell Telephone (AT & T) and retired after over 30 years of service. Bob was a devout Christian whose faith guided him in every endeavor. His ministers became important friends shepherding him through life’s challenges. He was a gregarious man who felt blessed to have many friends. All were entranced by his stories. He was a member of The Pointe Church in Greenwood.

Bob’s wife, Ethelene (Robertson) Webster, and son, Brian Webster, preceded him in death. Six of Bob’s siblings preceded him in death: Howard Webster, Winston Webster, Mary Austin, Kathryn Davidson, Ralph Webster and Linda Webster. He is survived by a son, Timmy, and two sisters, Margaret Mathews, Fishers, and Dorie McDonald, Indianapolis, as well as numerous nieces and nephews and great-nieces and nephews.

Services were at 3 p.m. Saturday at the Pointe Church, Greenwood. Full military honors were rendered after the service. Burial will be at a later date at Ever Rest Memorial Park Cemetery, Logansport.

Visitation was at 2 p.m. until the service.
