I am honored to have known Dickie, if only so very briefly. And delighted he transferred the beauty of his soul to his children. I know you will miss him very much.

It is difficult to honor a man so humble and selfless with a showering of complimentary words, as he would not be comfortable accepting praise for what he thought was just the right way to live. This time you will just have to accept us making a little bit of a fuss over you for once, Dickie Webb. In such a sudden passing please realize, Dickie Webb, that words are really for our own comfort so by allowing us to remember you, you are really just helping all of us, yet again. All we have on this Sunday is to honor his quiet strength and to remember his life of helping others. Dickie Webb was one of a kind human being and an iconic role model: words cant really express how lucky we were to call him our friend. Not a man - a tribute poem from the hearts of his entire family through the words of his son. Never has there been a man quite like Dickie Webb Never a man so strong, who was also so inviting Never a man with the roughest of hands, but also the gentlest of hearts No man could know more about everything, while boasting about nothing. Never has there been a man quite like Dickie Webb Not a man so unimposing, yet somehow knowing just the right times to reach out his hand. Not a man so hardworking, yet never seemed in a rush. Never has there been a man with a two block commute, who could have such a universal reach. Never has there been a man so simple, who could also leave such a profound impact. Never has there been a man quite like Dickie Webb Never has there been a man quite like this, so might it be that Dickie Webb was not a man at all. Maybe Dickie Webb was something more. Not a man. He is a feeling. Not a man. He is a lesson. Not a man. Hi is a kind act that ripples through time. Not a man. He is love. There never was a man like you Dickie Webb, and now we can see why. You were not a man at all, You were something way more than us, so you truly can never die. Whether it was his service to his country in the army, to his gracious community down at the Branch Station, or his boundless loving service to his family that was epitomized by his sacrifice of his own life to take in and care for his elderly parents til their dying days: Dickie Webbs character and understanding of the right way to live life was so effortless that he could not dream of accepting anything in return for him just living. This simple, loyal, and generous soul has blessed us with his guidance and given all of us something to strive for in a world that has been slowly moving away from these important virtues. We have to thank you Dickie Webb, from the bottom of our hearts for all the support, your less talking, more doing attitude, the Sunday Flights, the drop of a dime car fixes, the quiet times with a book or the boob tube, all of the smiles and laughs, and all of your quotes that will live on as DickieWebbisms. On most beautiful Sundays like today, Dickie Webb would go down to the airport to fly his plane, but he would never miss a big family event for the world. Well this Sunday is no different, except today Dickie gets to do both of his favorite things. Fly with an infinite smile into the setting sun, all of us sitting co-pilot. We can only trust you as we always have, and know that you will navigate our hearts into a place of peace. The family wants to thank everyone for their support and simply asks you all to honor Dickie Webb by trying to help others and live in the same unselfish way that he did. - Jay Webb

I was very sorry to hear about Dickie's passing! I have always known him to be a kind and caring man. He had such a generous heart - he was always willing to help with whatever you needed. My deepest sympathy to all who knew and loved him. He will be greatly missed!

Dickie was a great man. He was always so kind, so giving so caring. He always had something good or nice to say. He showed concern for others. I've lost a great friend. However, more importantly, the world has lost a great man who will be missed a great deal.

For the past 5 years as Dicks's co-pilot sharing our passion for flying as well as lunch and life's stories almost every Saturday with other pilots, it is without doubt that we all knew him to be the most decent,honest,kind and giving individual we have ever known. His legacy to us all is that we have had the opportunity to witness and learn from him that such fine people do exist and we should honor his life and memory by following the way he lived his. Just last Saturday he landed the plane so perfect it was if angels brought us down to the ground. We will all miss him dearly
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I have many fond memories of Dick, I have known him for over 50 years, as his sister and I have been best friends for all that time. I remember, eating meals with the family when Dick was in grammar school oh how he liked Grandma's fried chicken. I remember how you gave your parents extra grey hairs races his motor cycle. I remember how you hated being short and how you grew several inches after you join the military and got in trouble for your uniform pants being too short. I also remember how you took care of your parents as they aged. You were a great brother, friend and son. You will be missed. Thanks for coming to VT this year to see your sister it meant a lot to her, and it was great to see you.

I selfishly grieve because I didn't know Dickie for long--have been his son Jay's mom-in- law for only two weeks. I so wish I could have at least a few more years to know Dickie. What a lovely man, what a wonderful family, and how thrilled I am that my daughter, Sally, has married into so much love.
