Obituary

In Memory of George Kitchener Webster

It is with great sorrow that we share the sudden passing of George Kitchener Webster,
beloved Husband, Father, Grandfather, retired Lieutenant Colonel, and accomplished
athlete, who was taken from this world on April 10, 2020 in Weston, Florida.

The first of three children, George grew up in Detroit, Michigan. Early on, he displayed
the work ethic and initiative that would frame his many successes when he built a paper
route large enough to buy his first horse and first car. George earned a football
scholarship to the University of Detroit where he served in the ROTC program, and
graduated with a Bachelor of Science. George played two seasons with the Cleveland
Browns before joining the United States Army as a Lieutenant.

Serving two tours in Vietnam as a Troop Commander, George went on to have a
distinguished twenty year military career, earning numerous meritorious awards
including two Silver stars, four Bronze Stars, four Purple Hearts, three Air Medals, the
Combat and Infantry Badge, and the Ranger tab. Other highlights of his military career
include coaching football at West Point and serving the US Army at both the Pentagon
and NATO (where he also played for the Brussels British Rugby Club).

Retiring from the military, George earned an MBA from Georgia State University, and
worked as President and CEO of two successful companies before establishing his own
consultancy. Riding his horses and competing in reining competitions filled his later
years, winning multiple first place rankings and numerous other awards.

Though, if you had asked him, it was not his accomplishments he was most proud of,
but of his family. It was his 51-year marriage to the love of his life, and their three sons,
that gave him the most joy. From coaching little league soccer teams to carving pine
wood derbies for his kid’s cub scouts, he was the best dad. He was the best husband!
He was always there, supportive of his family.

George is survived by his wife, Patty, and their three sons: Bryon and his wife, Cuifen,
and their children, Sophia and adopted son, Wenhao; Eric and Jenne, and their
daughter, Story Sue; and Shawn and McCall and their children, Penelope and Tristan;
his brother, Wayne Webster, as well as his many nieces, nephews, and cousins; other
special extended family members, and many friends.

We share these things, and can still only hint at the impactful and full life that was George
K. Webster’s. He will be missed, and though he himself would have never claimed it, to
have known him was to know greatness. It is with a heavy heart that we write, he was our
hero and a hero to so many others. He will always be in our hearts.

George will be laid to rest with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to these organizations in his memory:

Oh wow I’ve taken so long pondering and wondering how to honor and share the many wonderful memories I’ve collected over the 25 years I’ve been in MK. I’m sure I’ll add more later but I’ll start with my first and earliest memories. I remember the joy I felt each time I arrived at an event and I spotted George in a crowd. I immediately felt found and I still remember the smell of a cologne from his warm welcome which was the best. When George made eye contact with you, you felt seen plus I knew that Patty would not be far from his side. He would point me in the direction as to where Id find our seats because that’s the gentleman George was. Always saving our seats, making reservations, taking pictures, and making sure to find us. He was so proud of his Bride, Patty!! I loved hearing stories when visiting their home in Weston about each of his sons, daughter in laws and grandchildren!! I had the privilege of staying in the West Wing (or at least that’s what my daughters called it) with each of my 3 daughters. A special trip I took with each daughter when they turned 13yrs of age, with my youngest daughter, Natalie this last August. George loves giving each of my girls the best experience!! Including trips to the Everglades alligator 🐊 tour w/Reptile zoo, opening the pool at night, picking up more orange juice & the favorite awaited time at the horse arena. Oh how he loved watching them each fall in love with the horses. I video taped him near by watching from the side as Natalie got her first lesson from the trainer. George was so thrilled with Natalies courage and ability to take control with her first ever horse ride, if you didn’t know better you would have thought she was his own grand daughter. I know that his words of affirmation made Natalies entire trip along with Patty’s cooking and the endless supply of Florida orange juice lol 😆. George was and has been like a father to me. I know if there’s was advice I needed I know I could call him, I only wish I would have throughout the year instead of waited for the next Mary Kay event. It’s incredible how a man that you only see once maybe twice a year can have such an impact on a family but our family loved George Webster. I will miss you always but will never forget you!!!

I am still in disbelief. Some people touch your heart and soul when you meet them. George is one of those people. There is so much to admire about George; however, what I admired most was how George loved and supported Patti. I respected him as a family man and in my eyes as the perfect husband. George and Patti is a couple I have always admired. Two beautiful souls.

The perfect gentleman! George was the epitope of strength and everything manly but also caring, kind and compassionate. My daughter looked forward to seeing George every time I visited Patti. George would spend time with her while Patti and I chatted extensively over make-up and makeovers…. Katelyn describes George as an "amazing man and cool grandpa". She especially enjoyed hearing all his military stories.

Katelyn and I are still sadden by George’s unexpected departure. Our deepest condolences to Patti her beautiful family whom she talks about all the time. Patti, may memories comfort you during this time of mourning. I love you and hope you know I am here if you need anything.

I have known Mr.Webster for 7 years as my bank client. He was a tall man, but always made sure to bend down to my desk every Friday to wave hello. He would always ask me about my daughters and share stories of his adventures for the previous week. I will miss him very much.

My father-in-law will be remembered for many amazing qualities: his bravery, his superhuman strength, his work ethic and his tremendous love for Patty, just to name few. But it is his dedication to his family that has forever changed my life and the lives of my children for the better. I was fortunate enough to marry his son Shawn, and I am eternally grateful that my husband learned how to be a loving partner and present father from the very best. The way George immediately welcomed me into the family and always gave me a home away from home in Florida has left an indelible mark on my heart.

Dad, you were taken from us far too soon but you will live on in our hearts and our many memories, and I pray that you can hear the way Poppy and Tristan speak about their time with you. At age 6, they already have a lifetime’s worth of profound experiences with their Grandpa. I know you’re watching over us, just like you always have. We love you, Dad.
