He was born Feb. 6, 1944, in Decorah, to Ronald and Ruth (O'Brien) Webb. Mike served in the United States Army, and then became employed with IBM where he worked in quality control until his retirement 42 years later. He married Susan O'Brien Aug. 12, 1977, in Onalaska, Wis. He was always active, whether biking, running, walking, playing cards or his favorite pastime, golfing. He forgot more jokes than we'll ever know, and he could tell a limerick with the best of them. He never forgot to make those around him feel like they were the best friend he ever had. To know him was a blessing.
He is survived by his wife, Susan; his son, Matthew Webb (Terra) of Lakeville, Minn. and his daughter, Jennifer Severson (Timothy) of Hayfield, Minn.; two grandchildren, Emily and Kaitlyn; and two brothersm Steve (Deborah) Webb of Byron and Tom (Diane) Webb of Pine Island.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
