The streets of Amsterdam are missing the familiar face of Joseph (Joe) Webb, born in Steubenville, OH, on June 4, 1934, to the late Fred and Agnes Webb. Joe, 79, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, January 12, 2014, after a brief illness.
Joe was a 1953 graduate of Amsterdam High School. He was a member of the Amsterdam Church of God. He served in the U.S. Army until receiving an honorable medical discharge. He retired from the Jefferson County Health Department, where he worked as a sanitarian for 32 years.
Joe loved his family, hunting, fishing, golfing and bowling. He rolled the very first 300 game at Amsterdam’s Garson Lanes in 1981.
Joe is survived by his wife of 57 years, Mary Katherine (Everly) Webb; daughter Sharon (Webb) Temple of Mingo Junction, Ohio; son, Roger (Marlene) Webb of Massillon; grandchildren, Morgan (Temple) Adkins, Austin Temple, Adam Webb and Evan Seese; and great-grandson, Kendall Adkins.
