Webb was a great guy! I had the pleasure of working with him for all of the years that he and I shared at JJKA! He tackled the huge task of leading the Next Generation Systems Project. About 15 of us shared a small conference room for a never-ending series of sessions. I know that we'd have probably each beaten up each other had it not been for Webb's leadership skills and most importantly, his ability to insert humor into the situation! A great man and an most wonderful co-worker!!! My sympathies to all of his family!!!
