Webb; daughters and sons-in-law, Sarah and Zach Thompson of Boone; Maggie and Tony Collins of Louisburg; mother, Zelphia Powell; brother, Robert Dale Webb both of Tarboro; grandchildren, Ellie-Kate Collins, Hallie Faye Collins and Calvin Neal Thompson.

Shorty was a very loving and devoted Husband, Father, and Grandfather. He was a valued member of the crane and rigging industry and a positive role model for those fortunate enough to make his acquaintance. He spent 35 years perfecting and teaching his skills and he loved sharing his knowledge with anyone who wanted to learn.
