January 19, 1953 - November 26, 2020
On Thursday, November 26, 2020, devoted husband and father David Wayne Webb went home to be with the Lord at the age of 67.
David was born on January 19, 1953 to Herbert Milton and Billie Mae Webb. He grew up in San Antonio, Texas until the age of 13 when his family relocated to Garland. His fondest and most cherished memories of his childhood were visits to his Uncle’s custard shop, the time he spent at Orchard Hills Baptist Church, and the scores of memories from his marching band days. In 1973, David enlisted into the United States Marine Corps where he served his country with dedication and diligence for six years as an active duty member, after which he served in the U.S.M.C. Active Reserves. During his time stationed at Cherry Point, David met fellow Woman Marine, Darla Jean Thompson, native of Springtown, Texas. They fell in love over Italian food and summer days at Myrtle Beach and were married on August 27, 1977. They moved back home to Texas in 1979, where David began working in the electronics industry. After a few years in that field, David attended UTD and obtained a degree in Business Administration with a Concentration in Electronics. David was the proud father of four children: Brandon, Patrick, Keith, and Emily. In 2002, David became a team member of Lowes Home Improvement in a part and fulltime capacity for 18 years. On January 19, 2013 he retired honorably from the United States Marine Corps Reserves, holding the rank of Gunnery Sergeant.
David was preceded in death by his father Milton, mother Billie, brother Stephen, and nephew Tyler. He is survived by his wife of 43 years Darla; children Brandon, Patrick, Keith and Emily; grandchildren Ellie, Brooklynn, Chloe, Aylin, Kalina, Gemma, Noah, Cambria, Leora and Anthony; Sister-in-Law Pam; niece and nephews Audrah, Micah and Caleb and great nephews and great nieces Carter, Delaney, Eli, Jackson and Kailey.
David was a gentle, giant-hearted man. He lived out the Marine Corps motto, “Semper Fidelis” in every aspect of his life by persevering through the mountains and valleys of life whilst holding humility to his core. He said the greatest purpose God had placed upon his heart was to be a devoted husband and father. His devotion to God’s purpose didn’t end with his relatives; he spread God’s steadfast love to everyone in his life that he encountered. His presence will be sorely missed but those who held him dear, are reassured by the promise of seeing him in Heaven.

For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me. Yet which I shall choose I cannot tell. I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better.
