Timothy Webb Obituary, Death – Timothy Harold Webb, WCHS Class of 1980, died on January 8, 2022, at the age of 59. Tim’s death has left a tremendous void in the hearts of his family and friends, who adored and will miss him terribly. He was always a lot of fun to be around, but more importantly, he was a loyal friend, brother, and son—a man you could rely on.
Tim Shelby was born in Holland, Michigan, on October 19, 1962, to Harold Webb and Hester (Creswell) Shelby. His family moved to Indianapolis in 1965, and he grew up there. Tim inherited his dedication and work ethic from his mother, a single mother who raised three boys on her own.
In 1979, he graduated from Warren Central High School. Later in life, he dedicated four years of his life to his country, serving in the United States Army and rising to the level of specialist E-4. Tim began his career in the material handling business in 1996 as a customer service representative for Nissan’s Industrial Truck Sales & Service division. He was promoted to management and spent several years working for Nissan in Rockford, Illinois. He has worked for Hyundai Material Handling since 2010, first in Tampa and then in the Atlanta area. He has lately returned to Tampa. Tim was Hyundai’s Southeast District Sales Manager at the time of his death, managing fifteen heavy-equipment dealers in the southeastern United States.
Tim was a proud Hoosier no matter where he lived or went. He was a passionate sports fan who followed the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts and Indiana University’s Hoosier teams. He also liked IndyCar racing and NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon. He loved many types of music, but he especially appreciated seeing classic rock artists like Billy Joel, Queen, Elvis Costello, Chicago, and Tom Petty perform live. He was also amassing a collection of old blues and jazz records. He is survived by his daughter Rebecca Webb of Greenfield, IN; stepson Shannon Bromagen of Morristown, IN; brother J. David Webb of Nashville, TN; Kevin L. Webb of Irvine, CA; grandson Quinton Bonhomme; granddaughter Amanda Sickles; and grandson Nathan Bromagen.
His mother, Hester L. Shelby, and father, Harold V. Webb, died before him. Tim will be remembered and honored at private ceremonies in Tampa and Indianapolis. Please consider making a gift to the American Heart Association in Tim’s name instead of sending flowers. Rest In Peace Timothy Webb.
