Trinity Standard -

By Chris Edwards

Cecil Webb, who served as Precinct 3 Commissioner for 30 years, died on Sunday, May 7, at his Trinity residence at the age of 82. Webb, a longtime Trinity resident, was born in Anderson County on April 20, 1935 and served in the US Army prior to moving to Trinity County and working as a public servant. His funeral service was held on Tuesday at the River of Life Church in Trinity with Rev. Mike Loftin officiating. Current Precinct 3 Commissioner Neal Smith called Webb "one of the greatest men I ever knew." Smith, who defeated Webb in the 2012 election, said that although he ran against him, the election and its outcome never changed their friendship. Precinct 1 Commissioner Grover "Tiger" Worsham also spoke highly of Webb and his long and faithful service to the county. "It was an honor to serve with him," Worsham said, and called him "a great man and a great mentor." Webb was preceded in death by a grandson, Kyle Webb, his parents, five brothers, and two sisters. He is survived by his wife Billie Webb, his daughter Jolie and her husband Steven Lane, two granddaughters Kolby and Kamryn Lane, his brother Jack Webb, and one sister Betty Carlile. He was buried at the Cedar Grove Cemetery in Trinity.
