Ralph Hudson Webb 1923 ~ 2011

Ralph Hudson Webb, age 87, passed away Tuesday, March 8th 2011 in Bountiful, Utah. He was born September 23, 1923 in Layton, Utah, the son of George Edwin and Laura Irene Hudson Webb. Ralph married Grace Susana Vanderhyde on September 12, 1952 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. He was an active member of the LDS Church and especially loved the finance clerk positions he held. Ralph served in the Air Force and Army Airways Communications Systems, spending the last two years in Ecuador, Peru, and the Galapagos Islands, where he loved to fish in his spare time. Soon after serving in World War II he moved to Salt Lake to get schooling and experience by working in two CPA firms. In April, 1956, he went to work for Tracy-Collins Bank and became assistant auditor in 1961. He was made Bank Auditor in 1965, and Controller in 1969. In 1977 Ralph became a Vice President. The Webb family enjoyed spending time at the Tracy Club in Island Park, Idaho in the summers, where Ralph enjoyed fishing. Ralph says the fish were larger then, and there seemed to be more of them. Ralph is survived by his wife, his son, Steve (Vickie), his four grand-daughters, Natalie, Stephanie, Hillary and Shelby, as well as many nieces and nephews. Ralph was preceded in death by his daughter Christine as well as his brothers and sisters.
