LONG TIME CROSSVILLE BUSINESS MAN MILO WEBB PASSES AT AGE 101

Milo Webb passed peacefully from this life on June 30, 2024, while his first granddaughter held his hand and his last son held his head. Born August 12, 1922, to Frank & Martha (Hedgecoth) Webb, he was the eldest child of their large family and took on a big brother role early in the years of the Great Depression.

He is survived by Sons, Richard (Sylvia) and Ronnie Webb; Sisters, Lola Anderson, Shelby Kennedy, and Margie Hicks; Granddaughters, Sheryl Webb (Michael), Pam Burris (Chris), and Whitney Powell (Eric); nine Grandchildren that he loved, adored, and spoiled, Taylor Webb Kemmer (Clint); Hunter, Connor, Julie Webb; Myla and Ellea Burris; Rylan, Jamison, and Cameron Powell.

He is proceeded in death by his beloved Wfe and Soul Mate of 74 years Beulah (Wyatt) Webb; infant Daughter Roberta; Parents; Brothers, Roy, Litton, and Ray; Sisters, Ethel Wright (Ralph), and Pearl Hassler (Gene).

A Graveside Service will be held at Lantana Cemetery on Wednesday, July 3, 2024, at 1:00 PM, followed by a Reception at Crossville Church of Christ from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.  Brother Thom Hassler is officiating for his Uncle Milo, with Carrie Hassler singing. Pallbearers are Grandsons Hunter and Connor Webb; Grand Son-in-laws Michael Webb, Chris Burris, and Eric Powell; and Great Grand Son-in-law Clint Kemmer.

Milo and Beulah accepted a community request in the 1970’s to organize and plot the gravesites for the Lantana Cemetery. So, in lieu of flowers, please make contributions for the upkeep of the Lantana Cemetery c/o 716 Sunset Road, Crossville, TN 38572.

When people asked what he did for a living, he’d likely say “Bootlegger” and grin. The truth was he worked hard all his life, including planting turnips for 50 cents a day; building pallets in Detroit; boarding a flatbed truck at 3 AM every day to ride in rain and snow to build the plant at Oak Ridge, and he has built hundreds of homes from the foundations up in Cumberland County. As a Builder, he started Home Supply in their barn (to buy materials wholesale) which grew and was moved to Lantana Rd, eventually becoming Cumberland Components. To sell the houses he built, his wife became the Owner/Broker for United Real Estate, and then came land sales and land development. He didn’t rest much, and never took a penny of “Government Welfare!”

He was one of the most kindhearted, generous, honest, humble, and decent humans to ever walk the Earth. Thank you, Lord, for this man! Now your Angel is home.
