Jimmy Webster of Campbellsville, Kentucky, left this world peacefully in the arms of his “Miss” Bonnie. He was the son of the late W. W. “Bill” Webster and Doyle Webster, born in Taylor County, Kentucky on December 26, 1956, and went home to be with Jesus on Tuesday, May 25, 2021.
Jimmy united in marriage to his high school sweetheart, Bonnie Skaggs, on June 18, 1983. Besides the love of his life, “Miss Bonnie”, he leaves behind two sisters and brother-in-law: Marsha and Jim Seymour and Myra Webster of Long Grove, Illinois. Also one brother-in-law and two sisters-in-law: Russell and Linda Skaggs and Robbin Cox. Jimmy adored his nieces and nephew, Jenny Skaggs, Andi Skaggs, Jonah Cox and Jordan Seymour. He was very proud of each one of them. Jimmy loved his family and always looked forward to Sunday dinners to be with them. When Jimmy took time to sit in his recliner, you would always find his kitty “Stitch” lying in his lap. He also had two dear friends, Billy Milby and Bob Milby.
Jimmy professed faith in Christ and was a member of Mt. Roberts Baptist Church, where he truly enjoyed Melvin’s Adult SS class. Jimmy could always be found working on many tasks for the church, but never wanted any credit, just saying, “it needed to be done.” Jimmy was a Mason with the Pitman Lodge #124, as well as a past Master.
He was employed at Campbellsville Industries where he was a shop supervisor; he loved his boys and it was truly visible during Jimmy’s short illness. He was an excellent welder and problem solver, spending many hours in his shop repairing machinery for others. He could always be found going across the farm on a tractor or taking a route in his ole red Dodge. On these routes, many times he would bring Miss Bonnie a big bouquet of wild flowers he had picked especially for her.
