Obituary For Steve Webster

Steven R. Webster was a marvelous soul whose personality and stellar character transcended his natural being. He was larger than life. His presence in any room commanded attention as his magnetic personality attracted people of all walks of life. This was his superpower. He never disappointed in providing timely encouragement, sharing life's perspectives, imparting words of wisdom, and providing inspiration by sharing the benefits of his success and experience, and by celebrating the victories of others. Steven was unapologetically honest and refreshingly genuine in all of his relationships. His unselfishness was on display daily in every word he spoke and in every deed he performed. Steven was always working to improve himself and the lives of those around him. His life's journey was pretty remarkable. He is an alumnus of Lane College where he graduated with a Bachelors of Art, Elementary Education degree and left with a plethora of friends. And more importantly, he left with a lifetime bond with his brothers of Phi Beta Sigma. He also enrolled in a degree program at the University of Tennessee College of Social Work, Memphis and later graduated from Strayer University with a Masters in Education, Organizational Management further establishing an even stronger network of friends and colleagues. He nurtured all of these friendships tirelessly as he felt strongly about manifesting them into family relationships. He worked fervently in the world of politics because being a part of the solution was a driving motivation for him in effecting meaningful and lasting change for entire communities and generations to come. He was very successful in entrepreneurship, real estate and had an extensive history coaching and refereeing basketball at several different levels (NCAA Division 2 and 3, NAIA, JUCCO). He also served on boards for non profit programs such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters. But his life’s passion was educating and mentoring his children. His greatest works were the accomplishments of his students in the Memphis City Schools system and, more presently, his Lincoln Elementary School students. The relationships built with his students and colleagues were priceless. He was committed above and beyond the job. He invested personal time and was dedicated to his children’s educational and individual success. Steven was relentless instilling in them confidence, knowing their worth and believing in their potential. His efforts demonstrated that they were unequivocally “his children". He made a lasting impression on all those who crossed his path, but even more impressive was the impact the children made on him; motivating him to get up every day to imagine new, creative ways to reach them, inspire them and pour into them. Steven leaves behind his wife, Gloria Webster, and sisters Stephanie, Cynthia, and Rhonda and a host of nieces, nephews, family, friends and those friends that are like family which are too many to name by name. We celebrate his life because he lived it to the fullest. We honor his life because he exampled a better way of living. We reach high in all that we do because he encouraged us to be great. And we must now journey on wholly fulfilled because he showed us how and believed we could. Steven was many things to many people. And to that end, he will be missed by us all.

The family will privately memorialize Steve on Saturday October 16, 2021 at 4p.m.

Please join us after the memorial from 5:30p.m. until 7:30p.m. at The Pocket, 115 Union Ave, Memphis, TN 38103 for continued reflection and celebration.
