Grady Lee Russell Webb was born September 20, 1947 in Sumner, Ga., the son of Mr. and Mrs. Russell Webb. Grady & Sharon moved from Daleville, Ala. in 2003, making their home in Bainbridge. He worked as an auto mechanic for Goodyear until his retirement. He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Everything about Grady involved doing what you love and loving what you do. His hobby, tinkering with small engines, fit perfectly with his career in auto mechanics. He enjoyed a fish fry as much as he enjoyed the fishing trip. Grady’s personality was one described as “friendly” with a side note of “he’ll talk your ear off” which made his practical jokes a natural sign of affection for his family and friends.
Survivors include his wife of 41 years, Sharon Webb; his children, Michael & Gail Webb of Bradenton, Fla., Debbie & Guy Kelly of Iron City, Ga., Mark Webb of Ware Valley, Tenn., Robert & Amy Olgers of Toledo, Ohio, Kenneth & Kristen Cochran of Opelousas, La., and Christina Olgers of Bainbridge; his sister, Mildred and her husband, Eldon, of Americus, Ga.; his twenty grandchildren and many great-grandchildren. In addition to his parents, Grady was preceded in death by his siblings, James Webb, Homer Webb, Don Webb and Loretta Webb.
