James Webster

September 7, 1959 — December 28, 2020

James Webster was born in Brawley, California on September 7, 1959 and died on December 28, 2020. Preceded in death by his father, Larry Webster, and his grandparents.  He is survived by his mother, Shirley Webster, and sister, Jeana Webster of Allen, Texas.    

Jimmy graduated from Brawley Union High School. His first job as a teenager was at the Adobe Steakhouse. After a brief stint of baling hay for his father, he went on to work in two-way radio repair for many years. Self-taught, he later went into web design and computer repair. He could fix anything and when something became challenging, he would say “now this is getting personal.” One time, when his vehicle wasn’t cooperating attempting to climb Competition Hill at the sand dunes at Glamis, he backed up and climbed it in reverse.

Jimmy enjoyed music and comedies – especially Cheers and Frasier. He was funny and made us laugh until the very end saying, “Gee, I kind of hate to croak and leave mom with all this stuff she needs fixed.” 

A graveside remembrance was held at Highland Cemetery in Durant, Oklahoma on Monday, January 4.

Services are under the direction of Holmes Coffey Murray Funeral Home in Durant, Oklahoma. www.holmescoffeymurray.com
