In Loving Memory

Web MacCartee, Jr.

Tribute

Webster “Web” Graham MacCartee, Jr., passed peacefully at his home on May 26, 2022. Born to Webster Graham MacCartee, Sr. and Minnie on August 17, 1955, Web was the 2nd oldest of four children. Born in Brookville, MD he tended to his family’s dairy farm, showing champion dairy cows that won many FFA awards. After moving with the family to Silverhill, AL at age 16, Web attended Robertsdale High School (Class of ’73) and then Mobile College, majoring in Business. He married Beth Ann Danner in 1976 and had two children.

At the age of 19, Web was called to the ministry. He began his path in the ministry at Georgetown Baptist Church. A few years, he would be called to pastor at Marantha Baptist Church in Rosinton for the next 11 years. While at Marantha, he would lead many to God. He established a community food pantry at the church and was director of the rehabilitation center, leading many others to the right path in life. After his service at Marantha, Web would go on to other occupations such as representative for NASCAR (Universal Technical Institute), manager for Harco Drugs, medical/insurance sales, and caterer. In retirement, he would be the proud owner and operator of the Snowbird Guesthouse in Daphne.  His faith in God shown through all his occupations. His conviction was displayed to the many people in his life. He was a lover of life and God. He cherished time spent at the beach and with his friends. Web had a passion for fishing, storytelling, and cooking. He was an adventurer, taking his family and friends to many places throughout the country. From the beach to the desert, no one would ever forget “Mister Web,” even if they had only met him once. He was a true American patriot and lover of his country. His veracity was constantly on display, and his honesty helped many throughout his life. He died peacefully after a three-year battle with pancreatic cancer.

He was preceded in death by his father, Webster Sr. and is survived by his mother, Minnie; two children, Caleb (Katie) and Christopher; and grandchildren, Evie and Ezra MacCartee. Also, surviving him are his siblings, Matt (Rebecca), Alice (Jim Brown), and Joy Eyster; and his best friend, Josh Todd.

A private memorial with family and friends will be held later.

    Prayers for his family and friends. He will be missed by many. Web was a truly kind person, and he could tell a story like no one else could. He is probably in Heaven telling one right now.

    We live close to the Snowbird Guesthouse and remember when he bought it. I will think of him every time I pass it.

    I know he left his family and friends with many fond memories. I hope those will bring comfort in the days to come.

    Web was a very kind sole. He was a good friend and we spent a lot of time together and shared many conversations. He would give the shirt off his back to help anyone. He will be missed. RIP Web.

    I was introduced to Web thru my son, Joshua Todd. All I could hear prior to meeting this wonderful man was, “Web this, Web that!”after meeting this wonderful person I understood why my son loved and admired him so much.
    Web loved everyone! He always had a beautiful smile and kind words for everyone.
    Web was a wonderful mentor for my son Joshua Todd from his senior year of school to present. We’b never tickled your ears with words to pacify one’s ego. He would be straightforward and honest and so often explain how Christ would handle a situation.
    Web (Webster) was a great friend to me and our family. he was kind and loving and a fantastic cook. If you needed a prayer warrior, he would be there.
    I will truly miss my friend, yet. I know where he’s at and soon we will all be together again, forever in heaven. May we all be ready to finally see our Father Jesus Christ and precious Web for always!
    Your smile and beautiful blue eyes and kind heart leaves a empty spot in so many lives. love you Web! Your friend Sarah Ward
    “see ya later”

I always thought he could do anything from the places he would take us. I learned alot from him… with him there was a time for fun and a time for church. I will never forget him!! My heart goes out to his family as well as my prayers! Till I see you again…….

    My Best Friend.
    He and I met when was in high school. He worked for NASCAR Technical Institute (UTI). I eventually signed up up to go automotive school and for the next year I got to now him. Every student that was planning to go to school he asked them to call and check in to make sure everything wasntaken care of as far as things needed to go off to school. But he didnt just use it as a check off sheet to make sure that they went to school. I feel he used this opportunity to help young men like me. He helped so many guys get their lives together and organize themselves before moving all the way to TEXAS from Florida Alabama and Mississippi. He and i really became close frineds when my room mate backed out on me after moving into our apartment in Houston. I called Mr. Web not knowing what to do feeling soo alone in the big city. But he sat and talked to me and ensured God had a plan. He and I eventually became best friends and many didnt get how 2 guy with such a large age gap were so close. He was such an amazing person. Helping everyone speaking to everyone. Never meeting a stranger. We both learned to “Unwind with out becoming unwound”. I have to honor of saying that I cary on his flame because of his mentoring. He was a frind but also a father figure. We were there for each others relationships & breakups. Didnt speak for a few years because i didnt like his tough words.

    I can go on and on and on.

    I really just want to say that this man was a Godly Man. He lead so many people to have a relationship with God. He gave everything away and always willing to help. This world needs more people like Mr. Web.

    20 years of his kindness and love poured on me. I now pour out on others.
    I am blessed to have had the chance to know this man.

    I Love you Mr. Web.

    I am excited to see you again one day. See you later
