In memory of
WEBSTER, Charles Daryl We celebrate the life of Daryl who died peacefully on December 16, 2010 in Edmonton at age 72. He leaves to treasure his memory: Fran, his beloved wife of 46 years and best friend; his sons Scott (Gloria) and Brent (Jacquie), and daughter Shona Nichols (Darren); grandchildren Drew Forward, Brad Webster, Marc Webster, Jade Webster, Alexander Nichols, Zoe Nichols and Austin Webster; and brother Duane. Daryl was born December 14, 1938 in Rouleau, SK to Paul Ervin Webster and Florence Helen Broadfoot and raised in Regina, SK. He graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a chemical engineering degree in 1961, and moved to Edmonton in 1968 spending his career working in computer science and information technology, mostly at the University of Alberta Computing and Network Services. After his retirement, Daryl continued his strong interest in computers by generously helping family and friends, both near and far, to solve their computer problems. Daryl was a kind, sincere, honest and humble man who led gently by example, seeing the good in others. He was protective of and a rock of support to his cherished family. "Grandchuck" loved spending time with his children and grandchildren, especially at the family cottage at Madge Lake, SK, and playing Santa to youngsters at the annual Christmas party. Friends and neighbours will remember his gentle soul. A private Celebration of Daryl's life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations will be gratefully received by the Cross Cancer Institute (11560 University Avenue, Edmonton, AB T6G 1Z2), whose staff provided unwavering support to Daryl during his ten year journey with prostate cancer. Special thanks are extended to Dr. Allison Theman for decades of astute care and guidance.
