John Denver “J. D.” Webb, Sr. died 10/15/1986. (Father of the evangelist Orlow Webb, grandfather of Anthony Webb.)  He was my pastor 1953-1957.  Years later I had him speak several periods to a history class at Wyandot Christian School.

He remembered the boys marching off to the Spanish-American War, saw one of the Wright Brothers fly, had breakfast with “Uncle Buddy” (Robinson), and was ordained by Seth C Rees.  He was my personal (& wonderful) connection with history – born 1/19/1890, in Kentucky.


As I’d mention a “great,” you’d known him:

Rees, Fleming, Culp, Uncle Bud, and Ruth,

Anderson, Stalker, and Wireman.

You’ve been privileged to hear preach the truth.

– eab, 1975, stanza 5 of “Brother Webb”
