Obituary - Steve S. Webb

Steve S. Webb 65, passed away on Saturday July 2, 2022, in the Kansas City Hospice House in Kansas City, Missouri. He was born August 11, 1956, to George and Sally (Higginbottom) Webb in Wyandotte, Michigan.

Steve always knew he would be a mechanic. He would tear apart his toys just to see how they were made. At the age of 12, he got his first job at a junk yard.

Steve left Michigan at the age of 16 and moved to Grandview, Missouri. He lived with his mother and stepfather, Jim Cox. Steve had a great deal of love and respect for Jim. He always said if it weren’t for Jim, it’s hard telling how he would have turned out. The two of them had a close bond and Jim was always there for him.

At 17, Steve joined the Army. He worked on tanks and drove them while in Germany. He patrolled the Czechoslovakian Border. After he got out of the service he came back to Missouri, which remained his home for the rest of his life.

He worked as a mechanic at several locations in the South Kansas City area. In January of 1986 he opened Webb’s Automotive in South Kansas City. In 1996 he sold the business and his family moved to Lowry City. Steve worked at Golden Valley Ford Tractor in Clinton. In 1998 he purchased a building in Lowry City and opened Webb’s Automotive. He retired at the age of 62, in 2018. Steve put all his blood, sweat and tears into his shop, but he always found time for his family.

Steve and Kathy started dating in 1985 and married on July 12, 1997. They were together a total of 37 years. Their 25th wedding anniversary will be celebrated on July 12.

He leaves behind his wife Kathy, his father George Webb who passed away July 4, 2022, 3 daughters: Shelly Ferguson (Rick) of Belton, MO, Kerry Triska of Belton, MO, and Mickey Szudarski (John) of Harrisonville, MO, as well as 8 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren, his stepfather Jim Cox of Lowry City, his siblings: Mike Webb of Rhode Island, Bonnie Primak of Carleton, MI, Darcy Campbell of Rockwood, MI, Erik Webb (Kathy) of New York, and numerous friends.

Steve is preceded in death by his mother Sally Cox, grandson Dustin Hogle, grandson Brody Szudarski, and his sister Linda Bergman.

He was the best husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather.

Steve was one of the most caring, loving, and thoughtful people I have ever known. He would do anything and everything to help people. He worked a lot of long hours and sometimes 7 days a week. Steve would drive long distances to help people who were broke down. Always helping people in their time of need. He has paid bills for people, bought window air conditioning units, cars, even tv’s for people. He was a very generous man and would give the shirt off his back to anyone. He had a huge heart, especially for elderly people. Steve was highly respected, honest, very loyal to his friends and family and he never wanted anything in return, just a thank you.

Steve was the love of my life, my soulmate, my one and only love. I will love and miss him forever. I will meet you at Heaven’s gate. Love you sweetheart.

The family suggests memorial contributions be made to the Lowry City Church Of God Holiness in care of the Sheldon –Goodrich Funeral Home.
