Joshua Steven Webster (August 19, 1975 — July 14, 2019)

On the morning of July 14, 2019, Joshua Steven Webster peacefully passed away in Hayden, Colorado, after a valiant eight-month fight against pancreatic cancer.

Born in Hershey, Pennsylvania, “Big Webby” moved to Colorado with his family in 1976. From there, Josh experienced life to its fullest including extensive camping, a Holland student exchange, snowboarding, drawing/painting, cooking, hunting, entrepreneurship, road trips with Rowan, writing, disc golf and of course enjoying a good beer with great friends.

He is survived by his son Rowan, parents Steven and Diane Webster, siblings Shelly Schuckers (Jim) and Jacob Webster (JD), former wife/forever friend Joanne Webster, as well as an amazing collection of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

A celebration of Josh’s life is to be held on August 10, 2019, in Hayden Town Park (229 S. 3rd Street), from 4:00-7:00 pm. Please join us to share stories that he can no longer tell. We are collecting his stories for Rowan. If possible please have them written beforehand. Remember Josh with his words, “Don’t let life’s bad outweigh the good. Find simple pleasures in the world and enjoy them as much as possible. They are sometimes the things that keep us going.”
