KANSAS — James G. Webb, 62, of Kansas, passed away at 10:59 a.m. Monday, Oct. 19, 2020, in the emergency room of Sarah Bush Lincoln Hospital, Mattoon. He was a lifelong farmer.

A service celebrating his life is 11 a.m. Friday, Oct. 23, at Kansas Christian Church, with Minister Bret Hammond officiating. Burial follows in Fairview Cemetery. Visitation is from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22, at the church. Templeton Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

Mr. Webb was born May 18, 1958, in Paris, the son of the late Bruce G. and Betty Broadway Webb. He married Cynthia A. Neese Dec. 2, 1978, in Kansas, and she survives.

Other survivors include three children, Andrew Webb of Seneca, S.C., Amanda Webb of St. Louis, Mo., and Ashley (Jayse) McQuaig of Seneca; two sisters, Janette Nash of Fairmount and Carol Ann Ingle of Paris; as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Mr. Webb was a 1976 graduate of Kansas High School and a graduate of Lake Land College. His life was defined by an endearing spirit and a Christian servant’s heart. He was an active and devoted member of Kansas Christian Church where he served as an elder and had a talent for making others feel welcome and comfortable. He served his community as a current member of the Kansas Township Board, a former member of the Kansas School District Board of Education, a member and past president of Kansas Lions Club and a member and former director of the Edgar County Farm Bureau.

In his spare time, he enjoyed waterskiing, horseback riding and watching Westerns and action movies. He loved traveling with his family, especially to zoos, amusement parks, go-kart tracks and NASCAR races. He will be remembered as someone who was humble, kind, loyal, sincere, principled and dependable. He extended his service to others even beyond his life by being an organ and tissue donor.
