Webster Thompson

Webster H. Thompson, 57, of Peabody, died Sept. 1 at his residence.

Survivors include two sons, Aaron Worthey and Nathan and wife Stephanie Thompson of Peabody; four brothers, Robert L. McCoy and David, Curtis, and Mickey Thompson of Wichita, and four grandchildren, John and Jodi Bartlett and Dakota and Alexi Thompson.

He was born Jan. 19, 1953, in Wichita, to Henry H. and Opal M. (Ray) Thompson. They preceded him in death as did two brothers, Donald R. McCoy and Michael U. Thompson; and two sisters, Shirley N. McCoy and Nina M. Tuell (McCoy).

Web was an engineer for Union Pacific Railroad for more than 35 years.

He loved collecting items of his Native American heritage. He loved fishing, drinking coffee, and shooting the breeze at Sharon’s Korner Kitchen in Peabody.

He played Powerball everyday and spoke frequently of plans for his winning the lottery.

He loved his family but had a special love for his grandchildren.

He also enjoyed having a full house of friends and family for everything including birthdays, holidays, and, of course, chili dogs.

Web was dearly loved and will be missed by all of his family and friends.

Services were Tuesday at Peabody Christian Church in Peabody with the Rev. James Pohlman officiating.

Contributions may be made to the Webster Thompson Memorial Fund in care of Baker Funeral Home, 114 N Sycamore St, Peabody KS 66866.
